Hubert Givenchy dead at 91

Hubert de Givenchy — the legendary fashion designer to celebs like Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy — has died at his home near Paris.

Givenchy died in his sleep Saturday night, according to his longtime partner, designer Philippe Venet.

According to TMZ, Hepburn famously wore Givenchy’s designs in several of her movies, including “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “Sabrina” — and she went on to become an ambassador for his brand.

Jackie, Iman, Candice Swanepoel and even Cam Newton rocked G’s threads over the years.

Givenchy founded his design house in 1952, and it’s now owned by the luxury fashion company LVMH. He was 91.
