Hubert Givenchy was born in 1927 in France.
In 1953, just shortly after founding his brand, Givenchy met the actress Audrey Hepburn. Instantly they hit it off, leading to a decades-long friendship. He, of course, made much of the clothing for Hepburn's roles but perhaps the most famous the black dress she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's. The design was inspired by Coco Chanel's little black dresses but had a more modern twist.
Although the original dress was supposed to be shorter, the scene in which Hepburn's character, Holly Golightly, steps out of a cab wearing her black Givenchy dress is easily one of the most recognizable fashion moments of the 20th century.
In 2018 Givenchy designer Waight Keller designed Meghan Markle's wedding dress for her marriage to Prince Harry.
