This is a post that is a little different from normal.

Oscar De La Renta passed away today at age 82.

Our Jennifer has worn the designs of Mr De La Renta often over the past seven or so years—quite recently on Live with Kelly and Michael and also Good Morning America. I felt it was appropriate to say a few words.

De La Renta was a sartorial genius who crafted, beautiful elegant pieces for over fifty years and became known internationally designing for former US first lady Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis. Mostly recently, despite his on going battle with cancer, he designed Amal Clooney’s wedding gown.

Mr De La Renta studied with great designers Cristobal Balenciaga and Antonio del Castillo, designed for Balmain and Lanvin. In 1967 and 68, De La Renta recieved the Coty Award, additionally he served as president of the CFDA (1973-76 and 1986-88), in 1990 he was honoured with a lifetime achievement award by the CFDA, two time winner of the American Fashion critics award (2000 and 2007), recieved the Golden Medal of Bellas Artes and La Gran Cruz de la Orden del Merito Civil, and was is recognised as a Legion d’honneur (as a Comander) by the French government.

My thoughts are with Mr De La Renta’s family and his employees.

RIP Oscar De La Renta.

Jmo Style is one today! Or seven in dog years…but that’s just being technical.

Thank you to my lovely followers for joining me on this often frustrating journey. Thanks to Jmo for being awesome (because guys, she totally is…if you ever get the chance to meet her…do.) and thanks for being totally Jmo-y and being a total style maven.
 
There are over 2000 of you now and while I know that I’m not as well known or a “popular blog”, Jmo Style is my baby so again thank you all. 

And Uh, I’d like to thank my parents for never giving me a ride to school, the L.A. city bus driver for taking a chance on an unknown kid, and, uh, last but not least, the wonderful crew at McDonalds for spending hours making those egg McMuffins, without which I might never be tardy. 

MWAH!
