Celebrities quickly acknowledged the legend's passing on social media, posting mournful Tweets and Instagrams in remembrance. Karlie Kloss, Taylor Swift, Rachel Zoe, and many more actors, musicians, models, and members of the fashion industry were touched by the life and designs of Oscar de la Renta.

The world lost one of the most extraordinary people that I have ever met. Thank you for helping me become the woman I am today and for always inspiring me to be better. There simply is no one else like you. - Karlie Kloss
