Oscar de la Renta, Fashion Icon, Dead at 82

Oscar de la Renta

The fashion world has lost an icon. Oscar de la Renta has died at the age of 82 after battling cancer, The New York Times confirms.

The famed designer most recently designed George Clooney‘s wife Amal Alamuddin‘s wedding dress.

In 2013, the Dominican-born designer admitted he had been battling cancer. “Yes, I had cancer. Right now, I am totally clean. The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die. We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life,” he’s quoted as saying by International Business Times.

A source tells Us Weekly that De La Renta had a form of gastric cancer and recently underwent an aggressive bout of chemo.

Aside from dressing hundreds of celebrities throughout his career (Sarah Jessica Parker, Lea Michele, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Garner, and many more were fans), the icon was also beloved by first ladies Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama.

De La Renta is survived by his second wife Annette de la Renta.

Matthew Morrison Marries Renee Puente

Matthew Morrison Gets Married in Hawaii

It sure was one gleeful moment when the actor popped the question to his longtime girlfriend last summer, but Matthew Morrison and Renee Puente must be grinning ear to ear after tying the knot.

The two were married Saturday evening in an intimate celebration in front of 50 family and friends on a private estate in Kihei on the island of Maui, Hawaii, the actor’s rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

Morrison wore a custom Brooks Brothers tuxedo for the occasion, while the bride wore a one-of-a-kind Gustavo gown with shoes specially designed by Emmy London.

Of course a Glee wedding would be incomplete without musical performances. Pianist Chad Whidden played for the crowd and soloist Kiley Dean sang “Feels Like Home” as Puente walked down the aisle.

Later on in the evening, Puente put on a special Hula performance for Morrison, and he then joined her in a couples version. The talented newlyweds ended their performances with a special duet together, singing Laura Benanti’s “Starry Eyed/Video Games.”

Kevin Covey Wedding and Events planned the affair, which featured food by Bev Gannon’s Celebrations Catering – including a special dessert station made up of Morrison and Puente’s favorite family recipes – and floral and décor by Inviting Occasion.

Photography was provided by Natalie Watson Photography and Watson Studios, and the videographer was Perryfield Films.

The Glee actor, 35, and the model, 31, have been dating since 2011. “An incredible night of LOVE @ejaf ball,” Morrison Tweeted in June of the engagement. “I’m going to marry my best friend! Happy day for me and @Renee_Puente.”

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Name Daughter Esmeralda Amada

Eva Mendes Pregnant Expecting First Child Ryan Gosling

Update: Daughter Esmeralda Amada Gosling arrived at 10:22 a.m. on Sept. 12 in Santa Monica, California, PEOPLE confirms via the birth certificate.

Originally posted Sept.16: Hey, it’s a girl!

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes welcomed a daughter on Friday, Sept. 12, PEOPLE confirms. She is the first child for both actors.

“She’s absolutely in heaven being a mom. She’s never been happier,” a friend tells PEOPLE of Mendes, who delivered via c-section.

“She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created. It’s a really special time for them.”

Mendes, 40, and Gosling, 33, began dating in 2011, costarring in the 2012 drama The Place Beyond the Pines.

PEOPLE confirmed the pregnancy in July, but the couple kept Mendes’s growing baby bump under wraps for months.

“Their lives completely changed as soon as Eva got pregnant. They used to travel all over the place together and go on hikes with their dogs. [But in the past few months] she barely left the house,”  a source previously told PEOPLE. “Ryan has been taking care of her, picking up food and running errands. He has been very supportive of keeping things a secret.”

Though they hid the happy news, an insider told PEOPLE the stars couldn’t be more thrilled to expand their family.

“This has been a long time coming,” the pal said of the very private parents-to-be. “Ryan and Eva definitely discussed children before. She knows how much he wants to be a dad and he’s going to be an amazing father.”

Blake Lively Is Pregnant

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Blake’s having a baby! Blake Lively is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds, the actress and model has announced on her website, Preserve.

Somewhat cryptically, Lively launched a Preserve Celebration of Family on her website, celebrating in particular “that special moment at the creation of family.” She published an array of pictures of happily pregnant ladies, and after congratulating “all the expecting mothers out there,” the Gossip Girl alum added in one extra picture –- of her blooming pregnant belly!

The snap, taken by her brother Eric Lively, shows Blake posing in the twilight, wearing a stunning black and white print dress, cradling her bump proudly.

Lively has been quite vocal about wanting to start a family since marrying Reynolds in September 2012. “I gotta get started,” the sunny actress told Marie Claire in its September 2014 issue. “If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would.”

Her sentiments mimic those of her hunky husband. “We’d love to have a big family,” Reynolds told Details in its August 2013 issue. “We both come from big families — my parents did four, Blake’s did five. A lot of people say it’s crazy, but we’ll only know when we’re there, you know? We’ll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think.”

Lively, in fact, hinted in Vogue‘s August 2014 issue that they could be walking through that fire pretty soon. “He’s going to be a great father and leader and patriarch—he’s so meant to be all of those things,” she gushed of her hubby. “The fact that he lived so much before we got together, he’s the exact realized person that he should be. And so I get to share my life with the person he’s become, and we get to grow from there.” (Reynolds was previously married to Scarlett Johansson from 2008 to 2010. Coincidentally, Johansson welcomed her first child, daughter Rose, with fiance Romain Dauriac earlier this month.)

Lively and Reynolds first met while shooting their 2011 movie, The Green Lantern, and secretly wed in an intimate South Carolina ceremony in fall 2012. Since tying the knot, the A-listers — when they’re not busy promoting new movies or working on entrepreneurial endeavors — have maintained a low profile in their Bedford, N.Y. home.
