Tunisian-born fashion designer Azzedine Alaia, who dressed stars from Greta Garbo to Grace Jones and Lady Gaga, died in Paris at the age of 77.

The designer was a star of the Paris fashion world in the 1980s and 1990s when models Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell strode down the catwalks in his trademark figure-hugging designs.

Dubbed the “King of Cling,” his dresses were worn by former U.S. first lady Michele Obama, pop singer Madonna and French actress Marion Cotillard.
