Top Ten Tuesday : Givenchy & Hepburn

We lost a legend over the weekend. Hubert de Givenchy died at the age of 91.

His creations were never ever boring and I could blog for dayyyzzz about them. But let’s focus on his magical friendship with his muse, Audrey Hepburn, for now.

It all began with Sabrina . . .

And she said of him . . .

Givenchy’s clothes are the only ones I feel myself in. He is more than a designer, he is a creator of personality.
