An extraordinary gentleman.
+July 22, 1932 - October 20, 2014+
Asked in an interview: Are you religious, Oscar?
De la Renta replied: Yes. I was born and raised a Catholic. If you were to see me at night, you might think I am deeply stupid. I say exactly the same prayer that I was taught when I was 6 years old: “Four little corners has my bed, four little corners keep me safe.” These are all in Spanish, of course, so I am translating here. The other one I say is, “God I go to bed with, the God I wake up with.” And the last one is, “Angel please keep me company, never leave me alone, not by day nor by night.” - Source
