One of the leading lights of American fashion, Oscar de la Renta, has passed away at the age of 82, according to ABC News.

The Dominican-born designer broke onto the international fashion stage as one of the designers to dress American first lady Jackie Kennedy.

He worked for renowned fashion houses Balmain and Lanvin during his long career, and his red carpet designs were a favourite among the A list.

His last high profile design was Amal Clooney's wedding dress.

The childhood home of the late Beatles guitarist George Harrison has sold at auction for £156,000 to a fan of the band.

The property, at 25 Upton Green in the Speke area of Liverpool, went under the hammer at a sale at Liverpool's famous Cavern Club, where the Beatles began their musical career.

Harrison, who died in 2001 after being diagnosed with cancer, lived in the three-bedroom home at Upton Green for a decade from 1949 with his parents Harold and Louise.

The guitarist was around five when he moved to the house. By the time his family moved on 10 years later, he had joined the line-up of The Quarrymen - the group that later became The Beatles.
