    Those dresses are all incredible, save for the one on Ginnifer Goodwin but that has more to do with the wearer. The navy gown on Oprah is stunning - she always looks incredible, can't imagine the type of structuring and undergarments it takes to make her look like that!

    This 100 times. He designed in a way that showed that he truly loved the female form and wanted to highlight all the best features. His use of texture and color was pleasing, not shocking. Too often other designers design simple to get attention for being avant garde but show little respect for how the clothing will actually look on a body.

    Those are drop dead fabulous dresses. The only outfit I don't like is the orange top clashing with the horrendous pants dwarfing Cheryl Cole.

    Some of the best designs and dresses I've ever seen. Almost always a hit. I agree, he knew how to dress a woman. He seemed like a lovely man, too.

    Agree. "you've got an Oscar" probably means more about a dress or outfit than it does a statue, were we to ask.

    i feel the same way about Kristen Stewart. Not every sow'a ear can be turned into a silk purse I guess. Back OT, this is sad. I didn't even know he was sick. His clothes were amazing.
