Remembering Oscar de la Renta + His Best Moments In Fashion

Oscar de la Renta, who died at age 82 this week, was more than just a household name. He was a legend. For multiple decades, de la Renta has dressed the likes of famed celebrities and politicians, such as Jackie Kennedy, Sarah Jessica Parker, Taylor Swift, and Hillary Clinton. But behind the sequins and the layers of taffeta was a man who was so much more. Consistently deemed a true class-act amongst his peers, de la Renta was considered a gentleman of the highest order and as being just as elegant as the clothes he made. He will not only be remembered for his iconic designs, but his words of wisdom regarding women and fashion will live on forever and ever.

Ahead, we’ve listed our favorite Oscar de la Renta quotes and a gallery of some of his best moments in fashion…

Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.

Walk like you have three men walking behind you.

Being well-dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense.

Any girl from any walk of life dreams of that special dress, and I try to make that dream a reality for her.

What women have achieved in the last 50 years, I wish men would have achieved in the last 100.

I’ve lived every day to the fullest, and I’ve had a marvelous time. I’ve tried to be nice to the people I care about, and ignore the ones I don’t. I enjoy what I’ve done.

More or Less: Embellished Flats

Love flats, but worried that they don’t pack enough of a punch? Yeah, we totes understand, but we’re here to help with a pair of flats that resemble… (wait for it) mice. Or hamsters. We’re still not quite sure, but we are totally sure about our love of these adorable kicks. Of course, when we first saw the designer version of these shoes we were shocked by their price tag ($350!), but fortunately GoJane has a nearly identical pair for a very doable $20.90. Take a look and let us know which pair you think is from GoJane.
