Oscar de la Renta, L’Wren Scott: Red Carpet Stars Who Won’t Be Forgotten

Looking back over the awards season that ended with the Oscars Feb. 22, the red carpet was a little less luminous owing to the loss of two of fashion’s brightest lights: designers Oscar de la Renta and L’Wren Scott.

Between them, de la Renta, 82, who lost his almost-decade-long battle with cancer in October, and Scott, 49, who passed tragically in March, have dressed the evening’s biggest stars, including Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Penelope Cruz and Jennifer Garner.

“You always knew there was going to be a great Oscar dress on the red carpet,” says Elizabeth Saltzman, stylist to Gwyneth Paltrow. “He was the epitome of class and style and taste. I adored him. It’s for his clothing I would save my money, knowing how timeless each piece is, how beautifully made, how worthy, and chic, and not trendy.”

De la Renta’s timelessness, says Eric Daman, Emmy-winning costume designer on “Sex and the City” and “Gossip Girl,” stemmed from his matchless savoir-faire.

“His designs were the embodiment of a richness that comes from decades of experience with couture,” says Daman of de la Renta, who honed his skills in the studios of Cristobal Balenciaga in Spain, Lanvin in Paris and Elizabeth Arden in New York, before launching his own label in 1965. “He had the ability to separate fashion from style. You’d be hard pressed to find any of Oscar’s past looks that could be called ‘dated’— they seem perpetually relevant.”

Not only did the Dominican Republic-born designer conquer Hollywood, he also conquered Capitol Hill.

“I respect that Oscar not only wanted to dress young Hollywood starlets, he also dressed politicians, and real woman making real change,” says Lawren Sample, stylist to “Mad Men’s” Christina Hendricks, of the designer, who’s dressed every First Lady since Jacqueline Kennedy including, arguably, the current First Lady of Hollywood, Amal Clooney, on her wedding day.

“My favorite Oscar de la Renta moment would have to be the dramatic powder blue Amy Adams wore to the (2013) Oscars. It was a lot of dress on a little lady, but she worked it, and you could tell she felt like a million bucks,” says Sample.
