At the launch for his latest fragrance at his gorgeous country home in Kent, Connecticut, fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who celebrated his 79th birthday on July 22, admitted that his experience with cancer inspired his gorgeous new scent, Live In Love.
"it's given me a warning to fully appreciate life, love, and nature," said the iconic half-Dominican, half-Puerto Rican designer, who had been diagnosed earlier this year and is now cancer-free. "The name really represents my life now. It's about loving yourself and loving life."

Oscar De La Renta has taken a step towards growing his own footwear line. Annelie Hofstrom, formerly of Manolo Blahnik, has been hired as the Executive VP for the footwear line, along with Alexia Aubert, formerly from Pierre Hardy and Christian Louboutin, as Director of Design. With De La Renta's vision and the recently appointed two executives, we're sure the shoe line will be just as fab as his wardrobe collection.
