French haute couturier Hubert de Givenchy, the aristocratic fashion designer whose understated style represented a golden age of elegance, has died aged 91.
Givenchy dressed Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy and is famous for the “little black dress”.
He died at the Renaissance chateau near Paris that he shared with his partner and fellow designer Philippe Venet.

At 6ft 6in tall, Givenchy, whose full name was Count Hubert James Marcel Taffin de Givenchy, was a giant of the fashion world in every sense.
He created on- and off-screen wardrobes for Hepburn in films including Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Funny Face. Hepburn, his enduring muse, inspired Givenchy’s first perfume l’Interdit and is credited with the designer’s subsequent success and popularity in the United States.
Givenchy, who learned his trade from another fashion master, Cristóbel Balenciaga, produced restrained designs of what admirers called an “extreme elegance” that became his trademark. His creations were eagerly awaited and sought out by the titled and wealthy in the 1950s and 60s, including Princess Grace of Monaco and the Duchess of Windsor.

Madame Figaro magazine described his clothes as being made with an almost “surgical precision … not too much, not too little”.
He liked to call himself the “eternal apprentice” forever seeking new inspiration and ideas. After a retrospective catwalk show before retiring in 1995, he told friends: “I’ve stopped making frocks, but not making discoveries. Life is like a book; one has to know when to turn the page.”
The Givenchy label was sold to the LVMH luxury group in 1988 but Givenchy remained head of creative design for a further seven years. In 2017, when British designer Clare Waight Keller became head designer at the fashion label one of her first requests was to meet its founder.

At the opening of an exhibition in his honour at the Museum of Lace and Fashion in Calais last year, Givenchy said: “I am happy because I did the job I dreamed of as a child.”
Venet said the designer had died in his sleep on Saturday.
