Review

"Anna Wintour, in her forward to the book, describes [Oscar de la Renta's] gift as 'genius plus love.' This credo-- intelligence wed to affection -- is apparent everywhere in this new book, which celebrates the man, his life, his world, and his rare vision." -VOGUE.COM "For those who were unable to visit the SCAD Museum of Art's Oscar de la Renta tribute exhibition this spring, this gorgeous tome provides another chance to view 70 of the dresses that were on display-- many of whom were custom created for private clients such as Diana Taylot and Hillary Clinton." -stylecaster.com

"A mastermind in the world of fashion, Oscar de la Renta was celebrated for his fine craft and exemplary taste. Here the everlasting legacy of his stunning gowns lives on." -THE SOCIETY DIARIES

"Famous for dressing Jacqueline Kennedy and countless other style icons in Hollywood and beyond, Oscar de la Renta made the world a more beautiful place with each of his exquisite designs. This book takes a closer look at nearly seventy iconic gowns." -Bookriot.com
