Celebrities Who Died in 2014

Oscar de la Renta, who dressed first ladies, socialites and Hollywood stars for more than four decades, has died. He was 82. De la Renta was among a group of designers that also included Bill Blass and Geoffrey Beene who helped put the U.S. on the map in the late 1960s as a home of serious fashion. His specialty was elaborate, embroidered eveningwear. First ladies Laura Bush and Hilary Clinton both wore de la Renta gowns to their inaugural balls, and Penelope Cruz and Sandra Bullock wore his work on the red carpet.
