Legendary fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy dies aged 91, Le Figaro has learned.
Hubert de Givenchy, the aristocratic French fashion designer famous for the 'Little black dress' and styling Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy, has died aged 91.
Givenchy set the template for ladylike chic in the 1950s and 1960s, and his restrained style still informs the way the Queen and older American and Chinese socialites dress.
His partner, the former haute couture designer Philippe Venet, announced his death through the Givenchy fashion house, saying he had died in his sleep on Saturday. The pair lived in a Renaissance chateau near Paris.
