Oscar de la Renta's Red Carpet Dresses Were Stunning And Original (PHOTOS)

The late Oscar de la Renta made his mark on the fashion world in several ways.

The red carpet was one of them.

His elegant dresses were worn to premieres and award shows by celebrities such as Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz and Sarah Jessica Parker. He accentuated their beauty through showstopping designs that defined haute couture.

de la Renta's absence will be felt throughout fashion, and he'll be especially missed at events such as Metropolitan Galas, the Golden Globes and, of course, the Academy Awards.

R.I.P., Oscar, and thank you for your wonderful designs.
