Fashion designer Oleg Cassini passed away in Long Island at the age of 91.

Cassini is best known as the man that dressed Jacqueline Kennedy during the Camelot years in the White House years from 1961 to 1963. He put her in simple geometric dresses made out of sumptuous fabrics and pill box hats.

According to legend it was President Kennedy who recommended Cassini who was relatively unknown at the time. He was born in Paris to ex-pat Russian parents and had worked in Hollywood for a number of years before dressing the First Lady. Jackie was only 31 when her husband was elected as the Chief Executive.

Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima was voted the "The World's Most Voluptuous Virgin" by the GQ magazine.

The Brazilian bombshell has so far resisted the charms of Derek Jeter and Lenny Kravitz whom she both dated.

"Sex is for marriage," she says. "[Men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there's no respect, that means they don't want me."
