Givenchy’s ‘Little Black Dress’.


From the moment Audrey Hepburn stepped out of a yellow taxi cab and stared whimsically into Tiffany & Co’s window in this gorgeous Givenchy creation, our love affair with the LBD (little black dress) began.
Audrey Hepburn and Givenchy met and collaborated on the set of Sabrina in 1954, and a life-long professional and personal partnership was ignited.
‘It was a kind of marriage’, Givenchy would later tell the Telegraph.
There was nothing ‘little’ about this LBD – it set a new style standard in Hollywood in direct opposition to Dior’s ‘new look’.
A modern icon was born.
