From TMZ 

Oscar de la Renta — who recently designed Amal Clooney’s wedding dress and famously dressed Jackie Kennedy — is dead.

De la Renta had been diagnosed with cancer in 2006 … though it’s unclear at this point what caused his death.

De la Renta was born in the Dominican Republic, and became internationally known in the ’60s as one of Jackie Kennedy’s favorite designers. He had just announced a knockoff version of Amal’s now famous gown would be added to his 2015 bridal collection.
