    Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn - a match made in heaven. Similar ages, the French couturier and American screen star immediately empathised with each other - an intimate relationship that continued into old age.

    Givenchy intuitively understood Audrey's petite frame - the perfect foil it would seem for the sophisticated and ladylike look of the late 1950s and early 1960s - tiny waist, full skirt - often with underlay and a simply cut bodice, often collarless to show Audrey's swanlike neck.

    In turn, Audrey's iconic movies served as the perfect environment for the ultimate catwalk - raising Givenchy's profile. And perhaps due to the timeless design of both the couture and the movies both are still much admired decades later.

    Givenchy and Hepburn - classic, refined, urbane style.
