Sinopsis: After forty years in the glamour business, Oscar de la Renta remains a vital name in both American fashion and Paris Haute Couture - a style-setter who has dressed famous beauties from Marisa Berenson to Kate Moss, Claudine Auger to Sarah Jessica Parker. With stunning images by such master lensmen as Richard Avedon, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, and Bert Stern, along with photographs from the designer's personal archives, this book captures the unique charm that is Oscar. The book covers his earliest childhood memories, his inspirations, his houses and gardens, the fidelity he has demonstrated to his artistic vision, and the women he has dressed. Oscar opens a window on his private world, sharing his style of living and humanitarian outlook. Oscar de la Renta is a never-before-seen look at one of the world's most influential tastemakers - as timeless as the clothes he continues to create.
