VAV!/February 21, 2012

On February 21, 1927 Hubert de Givenchy was born in Paris. He was THE fashion designer, who in 1953 designed the first outfits for legendary Audrey Hepburn. Audrey was said to be his most celebrated model and muse. She looked stunning in any of his creations in films to include Sabrina in 1954; Funny Face in 1957; Breakfast at Tiffany's in 1961; and My Fair Lady in 1964; among others. She made Givenchy a household name. He was once quoted as saying "Often ideas could come to me when I had her on my mind. She always knew what she wanted and what she was aiming for." Givenchy was also known as one of Jacqueline Kennedy's favorite designers.

Hubert de Givenchy founded The House of Givenchy in 1952 and was named to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1970.

In one word...Legendary.
