 Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta died last night at his Connecticut home, with a statement saying he was surrounded by his family and friends. He was 82. No cause of death was given, but AP said he had spoken in the past about having cancer.

During his more than four-decade-long career, De la Renta, a native of the Dominican Republic, dressed stars, socialites and first ladies, among them Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama. And in a recent coup, Amal Alamuddin wore a custom gown by the designer to marry George Clooney last month in Venice. De la Renta gave up the title of chief executive of his company in 2004, but remained active in the designing, and continued to show his collections during New York Fashion Week.
