Oscar de la Renta, the doyen of American fashion, whose career began in the 1950s in Franco’s Spain, sprawled across the better living rooms of Paris and New York, and who was the last survivor of that generation of bold, all-seeing tastemakers, died on Monday at his home in Kent, Conn. He was 82.
His death was confirmed by his wife, Annette de la Renta. The cause was complications from cancer. Though ill with cancer intermittently for close to eight years, Mr. de la Renta was resilient. During that period his business grew by 50 percent, to $150 million in sales, as his name became linked to celebrity events like the Oscars. Amy Adams, Sarah Jessica Parker and Penélope Cruz were among the actresses who wore his dresses.
For all fashion lovers and fashion professionals, it’s a pretty sad day today…

Hey guys, last month I was in NYC to meet one of my favourite photographers, Rick Day. I contacted him, thinking he would never reply, asking if he would like to take nice pictures of me. He answered me within 5 minutes ” Are you free tomorrow at 6:30pm? ”
I jumped in a plane and the next day, I was shooting almost naked in his East Village studio. I was very stressed at first, even had to go to the bathroom, to concentrate and pinch myself, telling myself I was here, shooting with Rick Day. When I came in his studio, I was like “maybe he didn’t see properly the photo of me that I sent him” or “he probably regrets inviting me” etc.
We were suppose to shoot for 45 minutes, and ended up shooting for 3 hours. We had a blast! I wanted to show you our work and of course to know your opinion about it. I won’t put the photos that are tooooo suggestive (frontal nudity) but I don’t mind showing a bit of butt. I think that Rick (and I) made something beautiful! So click “more” to see the photo I selected.
Versace‘s Spring 2014 campaign featuring Lady Gaga came out few months ago and everybody in the fashion industry agreed that the lady was flawless in front of the camera. But few days ago, un-photoshopped photos of the famous singer came out and they went viral on social medias. Funny how people complain that advertising photos are always photoshopped and that companies should consider bigger models, or average people, but when the photos are showing the truth, bruised knees, dark circles or pimples, people are still complaining and criticizing…
Check out the non-retouched originals after the jump!
