Hubert de Givenchy - fashion legend extraordinaire - dies at 91

French fashion icon Givenchy dead at 91, reports say

During his huge career, Givenchy dressed icons such as Princess Grace of Monaco, Jackie Kennedy and Gloria Guinness and is widely recognised for his contribution to everyone's favourite Audrey Hepburn film, Breakfast At Tiffany's, for which he made that black dress, which eventually sold for £467,000 at auction in 2006.

Givenchy set the template for ladylike chic in the 1950s and 1960s, and his restrained style still informs the way Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and older American and Chinese socialites dress. The opening scene of the film where Hepburn is seen wearing the iconic "little black dress" is probably what put him on the map.

The red coat she wore on the campaign trail for the 1960 presidential election was a Givenchy copy.

Givenchy was part of the elite cadre of Paris-based designers, including Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, who redefined fashion after World War II.

"He was the first creator to launch a luxury ready-to-wear range".

De Givenchy founded one of the world's leading fashion houses in Paris in the 1950s and then struck out for NY, going on to build a business empire that became part of the LVMH empire when he sold up in at the end of the 1980s.
