During the event, Clinton recounted personal stories she and her family shared with the iconic Dominican designer. 

One of those moments she recalled included when she traveled to the fashion legend's home country to do humanitarian work following a hurricane that devastated thousands. 

'Anna was right, when you are a friend of Oscar's, you were a friend in good times and dark times,' Clinton said.  

One of the stamps featuring the designer, who died of complications from cancer in 2014, is a single black-and-white portrait image. 

The other 10 stamps highlight details from gowns and dresses designed by De La Renta.

On Wednesday night, the former first lady was a special guest in the audience at hit musical Sunset Boulevard at The Palace Theater on Broadway, where she was greeted with a round of applause and a standing ovation.

Clinton was happy to pose for pictures with the cast backstage - who looked equally pleased to have their pictures taken with her.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway musical Sunset Boulevard starring Glenn Close is extending its run an additional four weeks, producers have announced. 

The play opened Monday at the Palace Theatre to rave reviews, with Clinton among the first to see the show.

She arrived at the theater about three minutes before curtain, but her attempts to slip in unnoticed did not exactly go to plan, as she was greeted by cheering audience members who recognized her immediately - despite her new haircut.

As the lights went down as the performance was about to begin, an audience member shouted out 'We love you, Hillary', prompting the crowd to applauded through the beginning of the overture.

The Democrat also drew a crowd of fans during the intermission, with well-wishers queuing to shake her hand and take photos, Playbill reports. 

Her supporters also started another round of applause towards the end of the break. 

The theater trip was Clinton's third visit to a Broadway show in just a few weeks'. 

She attended The Color Purple with husband Bill just before it closed in January, where she also received a standing ovation, and she also went to see In Transit earlier this month. 

The response Clinton has had from theater crowds is markedly different to the reception that Vice President Mike Pence received when he attended a performance of Hamilton in November.

The cast read a statement directed at Pence, asking him to protect 'the diverse America' they represented.
