Five pictures that capture the genius of Givenchy
'These dresses remind you of the first, best, glass of champagne'
Hubert de Givenchy, who defined Parisian chic, died peacefully today at the age of 91. We remember his genius through five iconic moments. From the invention of the LBD to Beyoncé's Met Gala dresses, his clothes are an enduring symbol of elegance.
Where would Holly Golightly be without her LBD? The black sheath dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's is as famous as the film itself. Givenchy's design has gone down in cinematic and fashion history, the designer dressed Hepburn many times over their 40-year-friendship. The Little Black Dress has not gone out of fashion since.
