Actors Hugh Jackman and Matthew Broderick joined the fashion elite on Monday (03Nov14) as stars including Anna Wintour, Tommy Hilfiger and former U.S. First Lady Hillary Clinton gathered in New York to attend a private funeral for Oscar De La Renta.

Designers Valentino Garavani, Ralph Lauren, Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors and Donna Karan, who arrived in a wheelchair after injuring her ankle, filed into the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola in Manhattan, where other mourners included Russian dancer/actor Mikhail Baryshnikov, veteran U.S. newswoman Barbara Walters, Clinton's daughter Chelsea, supermodel Karlie Kloss, celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz and director Mike Nichols and his reporter wife Diane Sawyer.

Few details about the ceremony itself have been released, but Wintour was expected to read the poem He Is Gone by David Harkins during the service.

Broderick's actress wife Sarah Jessica Parker, who was a close friend of de la Renta's, was notably absent from the memorial as she was shooting a new film in Italy.

The Dominican-born style guru passed away at his Connecticut home on 20 October (14) at the age of 82. He had been diagnosed with cancer in 2006.
