World renown fashion powerhouse and icon Oscar de la Renta passed away at the age of 82 yesterday. The couturier battled with cancer for 10 years before passing. Dominican born de la Renta has worked for Lanvin, Balmain and Balenciaga in the past. He brought up his own label and made a great name for it. Many first ladies and influential women in the entertainment industry have modeled his creations. He just made major headlines after designing Amal Alamuddin’s ivory wedding gown for her wedding to George Clooney last month.  A new creative director Peter Copping was just appointed last week and he will pick up where the legendary designer left off.  As a tribute to one of the most influential designers in the business we have gathered his 10 most iconic gowns.
