(Paris) – French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy has passed away at the age of 91. The late designer dressed first ladies and movie stars, including Jackie Kennedy for her husband President John F. Kennedy’s funeral, and Audrey Hepburn for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Givenchy founded his fashion house in France in 1952.
In a tribute post on Instagram, Givenchy’s current artistic director Claire Waight Keller called Givenchy “one of the most influential fashion figures of our time,” as well as, “one of the chicest, most charming men” she had ever met.
The editor of French “Vogue,” Emmanuelle Alt, added, “Today we say goodbye to a fashion legend, Monsieur Hubert de Givenchy. You were the incarnation of chic.”
