Oscar de la Renta will be inducted into Kent State's Hall of Fame today. The Ohio university welcomes the Domenican designer with a ceremony, a retrospective of his work, and a senior thesis fashion show of 20 student collections. To us, the news was slightly odd, especially since Oscar just wrapped a busy week that included a show of his bridal gowns. We wondered if Mr. de la Renta had taught at Kent State, attended Kent State, or anything else that would tie him to the school. Then we went to their webpage and realized no, they just really need his help and guidance. Bon voyage, Mr. de la Renta!
