Wow! It doesn't get much sweeter than this!
While paying tribute to late designer, Oscar de la Renta, at the CFDA Awards on Monday night, Chelsea Clinton was on hand, sharing two especially beautiful stories to honor him.

And one involves her now eight-month-old daughter, Charlotte!
Before passing away due to complications from cancer at the age of 82, Chelsea revealed the iconic designer knit a pink dress for her daughter. She divulged:
"The last conversation I ever had with Oscar was when my husband, Mark, and I called to thank him for Charlotte's gift, to see how he was doing, to see how he was feeling, to tell him that we were thinking about him, that we loved him. And of course all Oscar wanted to do was to talk about Charlotte — to see how she was doing, who did she look like, was she healthy, how was I feeling so soon after having given birth…He was always relentlessly focused on the future: whether a new season, or a new child, and yet he never forgot who his family and his friends and his colleagues were, with whom he had already created his legacy.
The mom of one continued:
"But most of all, Oscar had a generous spirit, a generous mind, and a truly limitless heart. The dress that Oscar made for Charlotte was among the last — if not the very last thing — he ever made. I will make sure that she knows that she is one very lucky little girl to have been given such a gift. I will also make sure that she knows that she's even luckier to live in a world that could create someone who was such a creator as Oscar de la Renta. And that we are better for the life that he lived and all the love that he gave away. I miss him every single day. Thank you all very much."
Alright. Cue the waterworks!
Is Charlotte officially the luckiest girl in the world, or what?? Hope she cherishes that knit frock forever.
