French Fashion Designer, Hubert de Givenchy, who founded the House of Givenchy has died at the age of 91.


The fashion icon was most popular for creating famous looks for the likes of First Lady Jackie Kennedy, Princess Grace of Monaco, Audrey Hepburn and Wallis Simpson.


He was responsible for creating one of the most iconic “little black dresses” in fashion history: the silk gown Hepburn donned in the opening scenes of 1961’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”


The fashion house company confirmed his passing on their twitter page.


They tweeted:


“The House of Givenchy is sad to report the passing of its founder Hubert de Givenchy, a major personality of the world of French Haute Couture and a gentleman who symbolized Parisian chic and elegance for more than half a century. His enduring influence and his approach to style reverberates to this day. He will be greatly missed.”
