Through May 3, the SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah is showing “Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style,” an exhibition curated by the designer’s close friend—and SCAD board member—André Leon Talley. The exhibition features 70 garments created for his high-profile clientele, including Oprah, Nicole Kidman, and Sarah Jessica Parker—not to mention FLOTUSes Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush. This installation is the first posthumous tribute to the world-renowned designer, who passed away last October.
