Tributes to Givenchy emphasized his impeccable taste as well as manners.

His best known design was Audrey Hepburn's black sheath dress in Blake Edwards' Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961).

The fashion guru's designs continue to impress in the celebrity world today as this year's Oscars saw Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman wear a custom Givenchy design.

Hubert de Givenchy, famous for styling "Little Black Dress", for Audrey Hepburn's opening scenes in Breakfast at Tiffany's has died at the age of 91.

"It was an enormous help to know help to know that I looked the part".

In addition to the Paris fashion house and boutiques in at least eight countries, LVMH also took ownership of 178 Givenchy licences for perfumes, clothing, and interior decoration.

Their partnership enriched the world fashion with a lot of unforgettable iconic looks.




Mr Givenchy set the template for ladylike chic in the 1950s and 1960s, dressing everyone from Princess Grace of Monaco to former US First Lady Jackie Kennedy.

Givenchy retired in 1995, and was succeeded by John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Julien Macdonald, Italy's Riccardo Tisci and its current chief designer, Clare Waight Keller, the first woman in the role.

Born in Beauvais, France, Givenchy worked under heavyweights like Christian Dior, Pierre Balmain, and Elsa Schiaparelli, making him equipped to debut his first haute couture collection in 1952.

Another homage during the most important cinematic night of the year was delivered by Chadwick Boseman.

In 1969, the launch of the "Givenchy Gentleman" line would become a reference in men's fashion.

Their friendship was based on much more than clothes, however, and Givenchy said he never tried persuade her to wear anything other than "what she liked and what she could wear".

Givenchy sold his label, Givenchy Couture Group, to LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in 1988 for $45 million after 36 years of running the company totally independently.
