Stars are remembering Oscar de la Renta, who died on Monday at 82 after a lengthy battle with cancer. As Gossip Cop reported earlier, de la Renta dressed a slew of first ladies, including Jacqueline Kennedy and Nancy Reagan, as well as numerous stars such as Kristen Stewart and Cameron Diaz.

Now, several celebrities have taken to Twitter to express their condolences and remember the fashion icon. Taylor Swift wrote, “My all-time favorite designer has passed away. Oscar, it was an honor to wear your creations and to know you. In loving memory.” And Kathy Griffin tweeted, “He made this secret fashion girl’s dreams come true #OscarDelaRenta,” along with a few photos of herself in de la Renta creations.

Many stars like Alyssa Milano, Lucy Liu, and Naya Rivera used hashtags like “#RIP Oscar de la Renta.”

Larry King noted, “What a legend, what a life. #RIP to one of the world’s most legendary fashion designers Oscar de la Renta.” Nicky Hilton tweeted, “What a sad day for the fashion industry. An icon is gone. RIP Oscar de la Renta.” Similarly, Andy Cohen called de la Renta, “a creative genius!”

“Thank you for your artistry, Mr. de la Renta. #oscardelarenta rest in peace,” said Rose McGowan. Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump expressed, “Truly saddened by the loss of one of the greatest fashion icons of all time. Oscar de la Renta will be greatly missed.”

Zoe Saldana tweeted, “Iconic legendary genius, gone but definitely not forgotten #OscarDeLaRenta My heart goes out to the De La Renta family.” Erika Christensen added, “Such romance he brought us… (I’d do a broken heart emoticon, but is he too classy for that?).”

Others quoted the designer. Lindsay Lohan tweeted de la Renta saying, “Never in the history of the world have women been more in control of their destiny.” And Kris Jenner posted the designer’s belief that “Fashion is a trend, style lives within a person,” adding her own thoughts: “The world has lost another icon today.
