Good bye, Oscar!

I woke up this morning to the tragic and surreal news about Oscar de la Renta who died last night. True legend, a man of impeccable taste, a remarkable designer, one of the old school bunch who truly understood the meaning of elegance, he left us with beautiful memories, exquisite fashions and a void in our hearts. 

Good bye, Mr de la Renta... R.I.P.

"Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is about being yourself. It is about being comfortable in your own skin."

"To be well dressed you must be well naked."

"There is more to femininity than just wearing skirts and dresses alone. I like the idea of an eternal beauty - a woman whose style transcends what is popular today."

"Elegance is an old world. A lot of anonymous girls walking along the street have a style of their own."

"I hate "pretty". It's a very empty word. It gives a bad name to beauty."
