Celeb-packed funeral held for Oscar de la Renta





Ap Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP), — From Hillary Rodham Clinton to Hugh Jackman to Mikhail Baryshnikov, luminaries of the fashion, entertainment and media worlds packed a Manhattan church on Monday for the private funeral of legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta.

De la Renta died on Oct. 20 at his Connecticut home at the age of 82, following a battle with cancer.

The Dominican-born designer, famous for glamorous garments that combined intricate workmanship with luxurious materials, was as admired on Hollywood red carpets as he was at socialites' soirees. Most recently, Amal Alamuddin wore a de la Renta-designed dress when she married George Clooney at a lavish wedding in Venice.

Monday's service lasted about one hour.
