An illustrated story of the life and art of one of the most important fashion designers in America. After forty years in the glamour business, Oscar de la Renta remains a vital name in both American fashion and Paris Haute Couture--a style-setter who has dressed famous beauties from Marisa Berenson to Kate Moss, Vanessa Redgrave to Sarah Jessica Parker. With stunning images by such master lensmen as Irving Penn, Peter Lindbergh, Mario Testino and Bert Stern, along with photographs from the designer's personal archives, this book captures the unique charm that is Oscar. The book covers his earliest childhood memories, his inspirations, his houses and gardens, the fidelity he has demonstrated to his artistic vision, and the women he has dressed. In these pages, the designer opens a window on his private world, sharing his style of living and humanitarian outlook.
