The story about how Audrey Hepburn became Givenchy’s Muse goes as so… Givenchy got a message saying that Miss Hepburn was in his shop waiting for a fitting, exited about having the legendary Katherine Hepburn there he came out to find not Kate, But Audrey Hepburn to his surprise.
Their relationship grew and Audrey Hepburn became Givenchi’s prime model and of course the face of Givenchi in a time when starlets, not models, showed off the designer clothes.
In most of the old photos of Audrey’s appearances, she is usually wearing Givenchi and Audrey went on to make his most famous ads. It’s actually hard to find a photo of her in Black and white wher she is not wearing Givenchi.
Those ad campaigns and photos are so popular that people have tried to recreate them as in this photo of model Model Romilly Collins wears the black Givenchy dress made for Audrey Hepburn in the classic 1961 film ‘Breakfast at Tiffanys. Romilly tried to recreate the pose that audrey was in in her dress. That Givenchi dress sold for around $88k at auction at Christies in London, 2006.
