Hubert de Givenchy the great master of Haute Couture

The world of fashion has lost one of its great talents. Hubert de Givenchy was the last of the generation of designers of French haute couture. In this article we commemorate his incredible work that has marked an unforgettable footprint in haute couture.

In the 1950s, Givenchy presented his first collection with unique and innovative pieces, like the Bettina blouse, giving a new direction to elegance with simplicity. In this way he created the dresses with the minimum of seams possible, thus enchanting the woman’s body:

“The dress must follow the body of a woman. It is not the body that must adapt to the dress.”

With this idea, Givenchy showed his admiration for femininity and his particular vision of fashion, which we should all follow.

The French designer marked his fame by creating personalised clothing for princesses and first ladies of high society in the mid-twentieth century, such as Jackie Kennedy or the Duchess of Windsor. His most beloved client was the legendary actress Audrey Hepburn who also shared great admiration for Givenchy

“He is more than a designer, he is a personality creator”.

Hepburn commissioned the French courtier to make the emblematic dresses she wore in her most recognised movies, such as Breakfast in Tiffany, Sabrina and Funny Face.

Breakfast in Tiffany Givenchy

Givenchy was the couturier of Audrey Hepburn not only in the movies, but also in real life. In her second marriage to Andrea Dotti, Audrey wore a pale pink long-sleeved wool mini-dress, designed by her close friend. Her cute headscarf was made from the same fabric as her beautiful dress, creating an iconic look that was dramatically different from the traditional bridal veil.

Hubert de Givenchy was part of a generation of designers who sought perfection from beginning to end using high-quality fabrics sewn with extreme attention to detail often using time-consuming
hand-executed techniques.

Relaxed Bun

A relaxed hair-do creates a style that is sophisticated yet absolutely charming. Pinning and twisting long hair loosely around creates a messy and effortless upswept hair style that looks less structured and more romantic.

Pulled Back

This simple half up, style is perfect for the brides getting married outdoors that can be easily accessorised with a comb, headband or fresh flowers. Lightly add volume to the hair at the crown before pulling it back to create an extra height on the top of the head to help balance out the fullness of the curls.

The side bum is a flattering style that suites most brides A beautiful and delicate hair accessory makes this off-centre chignon party-ready. To create a fuller bun add extra volume to the hair at the base of a low ponytail before twisting it into a knot.

High Bun

An elegant and classic up- do that looks great with a tiara or headband. Start this look with a french twist instead of a ponytail. It’s easier to form the bun when the hair is already twisting from its base. If you begin with a ponytail, the hair tends to hang straight down rather than twist up.

Long Waves

For a hair-do that is polished yet natural, try these loose waves . Use a thickening spray on damp hair before blow-drying and wrapping individual sections around a curling iron. The spray is a great addition to the hairstyle because it helps keep the finished curls from wilting before the evening is over.

Low Chignon

A sleek, low chignon accessorised with a single comb on the side of the head gives this otherwise demure style an air of drama. Work a silicone serum through damp hair before blow-drying to boost shine and control flyaway hairs.
