Stars Pay Their Respects at Oscar de la Renta's Funeral
Dignitaries of all kinds traveled to New York to pay their respects to Oscar de la Renta for a private memorial over the weekend.
Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Charlie Rose, Matthew Broderick, Hugh Jackman, Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer were among those in attendance for the hour-long ceremony. Inside, Vogueeditor-in-chief Anna Wintour read a poem called He is Gone.
Oscar left behind a legacy that will never be forgotten.
"Any great designer will have a point of view and a very strong signature, and that's what Oscar has," Wintour once told ET. "He has an incredible joie de vivre."
Anna was one of Oscar's closest confidantes and was even behind the creation of Oscar's gowns for Amal Clooney on her wedding day and Michelle Obama just two weeks ago.
Anna reportedly called the first lady, knowing that Oscar was at the end of his life, and told her that if she didn't wear one of his gowns soon, she could be one of the only first ladies not to wear an Oscar creation. Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan all wore gowns by the designer.
