Fashion icon Hubert de Givenchy dies at 91
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, his partner said Monday.
Givenchy set the template for ladylike chic in the 1950s and 1960s, and his restrained style still influences style and fashion today.
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.
“It is with huge sadness that we inform you that Hubert Taffin de Givenchy has died," it said in a statement to AFP. The designer's "nephews and nieces share Mr Venet's grief," it added.
