Hubert de Givenchy, the aristocratic French fashion designer famous for the "little black dress" and styling Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy, has died aged 91, his partner said Monday. Givenchy designed the famous black dress Hepburn wore in the opening scenes of "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
The designer set the template for ladylike chic in the 1950s and 1960s, and his restrained style still informs the way Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and older American and Chinese socialites dress.
His longtime partner, the former haute couture designer Philippe Venet, announced his death through the Givenchy fashion house, saying he had died in his sleep on Saturday.
"It is with huge sadness that we inform you that Hubert Taffin de Givenchy has died," it said in a statement to AFP.
It was Givenchy's 40-year friendship with Hepburn, who he met on the set of the Billy Wilder's Oscar-winning comedy "Sabrina" in 1953, that helped make him a fashion legend.

The modern design of a newly-constructed East Hampton home reflects its waterfront location. The five-bedroom, 5 1⁄2 -bathroom home near Three Mile Harbor is on the market for $2.995 million.

The home has more than 3,000 square feet of living space on the two upper floors and an additional 1,600 square feet on the finished lower level.

Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s 2010 How Wine Became Modern exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is one of a series of museum shows the architects have developed over the years that challenge the master sense. The exhibition design, which included a “smell wall,” attempted to make tactile the sensory aspects (aroma, color, texture) of wine. Courtesy Matthew Millman
What comes to mind when you encounter the term “sensory design”? Chances are it is an image: a rain room, a funky eating utensil, a conspicuously textured chair. But the way things actually feel, smell, even taste, is much harder to capture. This difficulty points to how deeply ingrained the tyranny of vision is. Might the other senses be the keys to unlocking broader empirical truths? Does the ocular-centric bias of art, architecture, and design actually preclude a deeper collective experience?
Such questions are at the heart of the current Cooper Hewitt exhibition The Senses: Design Beyond Vision, curated by E..
