CNN reports that Oscar de la Renta, fashion icon responsible for many of the jaw dropping looks to ever hit the red carpet has died after 5 decades in high fashion. The Dominican Republic native impact fashion like none other. One of Dominican Republic’s proudest sons, the man often described as the “sultan of suave” — not only dressed every first lady since Jacqueline Kennedy, but also designed the wedding dresses for many of other presidental children, including Jenna Bush and Chelsea Clinton.

“We will always remember him as the man who made women look and feel beautiful,” former first lady Laura Bush said late Monday night.

The cause of his death, announced by close family friends and industry colleagues, was not immediately clear. He was diagnosed with the demon cancer in 2006, but said last year he was “totally clean.”

“The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die,” he told an audience at New York’s 92Y “Fashion Talks” series in June 2013. “We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life.”

Here are photos of gowns that he has created and designed in the last year.

-Is the artist’s kit clean and orderly, stocked with a wide range of ‘professional quality’ products and options? And is everything clean and sanitary? Brushes should be clean. -Does the makeup artist wash his/her hands before applying makeup to your face?
