Oscar de la RentaIconic fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has passed away at 82 after a battle with cancer. The Dominican-born designer and two-time winner of the American Fashion Critics' Award was known for his classic designs and dressing celebrities such as Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift. Most recently he designed the wedding dress for George Clooney's wife, Amal Alamuddin. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 but confirmed in an interview last year with the International Business Times that he was in remission. "Yes, I had cancer. Right now, I am totally clean. The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die," he said. "We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The only thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life."

In the same interview, de la Renta discussed his plans to not retire any time soon: "People ask me, 'At your age, when are you going to retire?' I think every single day there is a learning process. For a long time... I wondered what would happen to the brand when I am no longer here. But I will be here for a very, very long time."

One thing is for sure — the fashion world will miss de la Renta's glitz and glamour for years to come.
