Legendary fashion designer Oscar de La Renta has died, a family member told ABC News. He was 82.

De La Renta, who most recently designed Amal Clooney's wedding dress, was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.

De La Renta, who was born in the Dominican Republic and became interested in fashion when he was studying art in Spain, made his name in the 1960s when first lady Jaqueline Kennedy frequently wore his designs.

More to come...

Oscar de la Renta, legendary designer, has died at age 82
Quote:
One of the world's most legendary fashion designers, Oscar de la Renta, has died, reports ABC News and Univision. He was 82.

De la Renta's health was described earlier this month by the New York Times as "precarious." He had cancer in 2006, and at his women's wear show in September looked "frail."

Known for dressing celebrities, stateswomen and fashionistas of all kinds, de la Renta's most recent famous moment came when he designed Amal Clooney's wedding dress just last month.

But the Dominican Republic-born designer really made a name for himself in the 1960s when he dressed Jacqueline Kennedy.

He launched his ready-to-wear label in 1965 in New York.

Along with being a favorite of the Ladies-Who-Lunch crowd, the always tanned and smiling de la Renta was popular on the red carpet. Through the years, his elegant yet showy creations were worn by celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Lea Michele, Jennifer Garner, Sarah Jessica Parker and many more.

Last year, Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Executive Director Fern Mallis called him "the sultan of suave." At that event, he spoke of his cancer, saying,

"Yes, I had cancer. Right now, I am totally clean. The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die. We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life."

De la Renta was married twice. His first wife, Francoise de Langlade, died in 1983. In 1989, he married Annette Engelhard.

On Oct. 13, the de la Renta design house announced it had named Peter Copping as creative director.

OMG can't believe it, I was thinking the other day he maybe could replace KL at Chanel once he´d retired.

RIP ODLR.

This is so difficult to believe. Not because the rumors of his health taking a turn were necessarily secret, but because they were unfortunately true. What an icon that we've lost. May he rest in peace.
