Luminaries of the fashion and entertainment worlds are attending a private funeral today for legendary designer Oscar de la Renta.

Actor Hugh Jackman, journalists Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer (with husband Mike Nichols) and designers Diane von Furstenberg and Tommy Hilfiger were seen entering the church on Park Avenue on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

They were joined by Vogue editor Anna Wintour and noted photographer Annie Leibovitz.

De la Renta died on October 20 at his Connecticut home at the age of 82 following a battle with cancer.

The Dominican-born designer, famous for his intricate workmanship and glamorous designs, was as admired on Hollywood red carpets as he was at socialites' soirees.

Most recently, Amal Alamuddin wore a de la Renta-designed dress when she married George Clooney at a lavish wedding in Venice.
