Hubert Givenchy: Celebrating Parisian Chic Style

Earlier this week, the great French designer Hubert de Givenchy passed away. Not only was he a pioneer in high-end ready-to-wear clothing, but for more than half a century his designs symbolized Parisian chic and elegance - a style that will live on.

A Muse and Icon

Givenchy may be best known for designing Audrey Hepburn's black dress from "Breakfast at Tiffany's." As his muse and dear friend, he continued on to style her for seven movies total. Some of these films include "Sabrina"(Kimberly's Favorite), "Funny Face" and "How to Steal a Million." If you haven't seen any of these films, head to Netflix right now and start binging. The drama and celebration of the female form is stunning!

A Collection of a Lifetime

Kimberly and I were inspired to share some of our favorite looks on this Pinterest Board. If you are curious to see the arch of some of Givenchy's creations check them out here.

 

Givenchy lead a fascinating life that stretched far beyond just his design skills. CNN Style did a great article about his life, passion, rise to style stardom, and the legacy that he leaves behind. We highly recommend that you give it a read!

Stay Stylish,
K&M
