A-list Loves Givenchy

From Audrey Hepburn to Kendall Jenner every style icon, old and new, has had a penchant for Givenchy.

Founded by Hubert de Givenchy in 1952, the storied Parisian couture house's client list read like a who's who of vintage Hollywood's finest. Mr Givenchy's relationship with Audrey Hepburn was a match made in fashion heaven and he went on to produce her entire movie wardrobe for Sabrina as well as that little black dress in Breakfast At Tiffany's.

Current creative director Riccardo Tisci has re-invented the house for a new generation, embracing modern-day A-listers from reality queen Kim Kardashian to Beyoncé, even making Kim's wedding gown when she married Kanye West in 2014.

Riccardo champions a fiercely glam look, often adding design touches like leather strapping and metal studs to the house's dramatic silhouettes. He's also all about street style, and caused a surge in demand for couture sweatshirts when he joined the house back in 2005.

'Givenchy is obviously a couture house,' he told CNN Style. 'I've brought the couture to the street and street style I've made more couture. That's what made me different. I was one of the first ones to bring back the sweatshirts, the trainers and make them more Givenchy, more luxury.'

On the runway, Gisele, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and more have all modeled for the house, with the new generation of Insta-girls (Hi Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and co) following in their footsteps today.

Riccardo is, as well as one of the industry's most respected designers, one of the most popular men in fashion, as his 40th birthday party in Ibiza taught us. He even sent parcels of mini-me Givenchy to Kim Kardashian after she gave birth to North West, kicking off the brand's relationship with the next next generation, now.
