Published on October 21, 2014. Updated April 3, 2017

Oscar de la Renta was one of the world’s most talented fashion designers. He was famous for his elegantly feminine designs and flattering silhouettes, which featured full skirts and fitted bodices. Sadly, he passed away due to complications from cancer. He was 82 years old. He fashioned some of the most famous celebrities and most of these ladies ended up on various best dressed lists thanks to his beautiful gowns. De la Renta may be gone, but his legacy will continue to live on. Check out some of his most fashionable dresses on 9 of Hollywood’s most popular celebrities!

9. Jennifer Garner

Even though some people don’t think there is anything remarkable about this black, silk taffeta Oscar de la Renta fishtail gown that Jennifer Garner wore to the 80th Academy Awards, we beg to differ. It proves one of Jennifer’s most remarkable quotes about the legendary designer. She said “He wasn’t afraid to pull back and let the woman be the star of the look.” And that’s exactly what he did with the gown below.

8. Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt had us green with envy when she wore this emerald green, chiffon, one-shoulder gown with a thigh-high split by Oscar de la Renta to the 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards. The gown itself is just so feminine and flattering on her physique – we love it.

7. Emma Watson

Emma Watson looked incredible in this tulle sleeveless gown with an embroidered bodice and full skirt by Oscar de la Renta that she wore to the premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.” The short pixie cut combined with the ethereal-looking dress makes her seem a bit fairy-like.

6. Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz rocked this champagne-colored tulle Oscar de la Renta gown, which was covered with gold paillette embroidery, at the 2010 Oscars. Rachel Zoe styled her for the event and, we must say, she did an excellent job! Diaz almost always looks stylish on the red carpet, but this ensemble definitely brings out the glamour.

4. Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson looked exquisite at the New York premiere of “Bride Wars” in this black and white geometric patterned strapless mermaid gown with a peplum at the waist by Oscar de la Renta. This is easily one of our favorite looks on her – although it probably would have been better suited to a bigger event like the Golden Globe Awards or the Oscars.

3. Amy Adams

This powdery blue, strapless Oscar de la Renta gown that Amy Adams wore to the 85th Academy Awards is stunning. It is reminiscent of the gown that Emma Watson wore to the premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” with its embroidered bodice and feathered skirt.
