Celebs everywhere are paying tribute to legendary fashion designer Oscar De La Renta.
Family sources confirmed to ABC News that the Dominican American couturier passed away at 82. The designer, who has dressed some of the most important figures in fashion over the past six decades, had been battling cancer since 2006.
Best known for his evening looks and red carpet-worthy gowns, De La Renta has been behind the wedding dresses of generations of icons spanning from Jacqueline Kennedy to the recently married Amal Clooney. He also designed the inaugural ball gowns for Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush. Other famous clients and fans included Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway and Victoria Beckham.
In 1990, De La Renta was honored with the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Over the course of his career, he worked at fashion houses like Lanvin and Balmain before creating a label of his own. He'd stepped down as creative director of his company earlier this month.
Take a look at how the stars, fellow designers, and fashion friends are honoring the late fashion icon:
