The most iconic and memorable Oscar de la Renta gowns

The iconic fashion designer Oscar de la Renta died aged 82 yesterday at his home in Kent, Connecticut. 

While the Dominican-born designer's empire spanned perfumes and accessories, it was his elegant and exquisite gowns through which he really made his stamp on the fashion world. 

Chances are, if you're an A-lister (well, you might be, you never know who's reading), you've probably worn one of his creations on the red carpet at some point. 

But his works weren't just a regular at awards ceremonies, their also loved by many all over the world and have even been featured on popular TV shows such as Gossip Girl.

From designing for Sex and the City to his recent creation for Amal Clooney (née Alamuddin), we've taken a look at some of the most memorable gowns ever created by the brilliant and talented designer. He will be missed.
