Hubert De Givenchy – Best Looks

French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, who created famous looks for Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Jackie Kennedy, has died at the age of 91. The designer is best known for the “little black dress” worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Furthermore, the designer broke from French couture tradition when he hired a group of nonwhite models in the early 1970s which are still considered controversial.

Together they forged a refined image of pared-to-the-bone glamour that still looks chic more than half a century later. As a result, we owe much to Givenchy for creating a sartorial language everyone was eager to learn and here, we celebrate the late designer’s work as seen…
