Sad news today: ABC News reports that designer Oscar de la Renta has passed away at the age of 82. The designer, who dressed First Ladies from Nancy Reagan to Michelle Obama and, most recently, notably outfitted Amal Clooney for her wedding, first began his business in 1965. Last week, the brand announced Peter Copping as de la Renta's successor, a role the company had reportedly been seeking to fill for some time.
