Throughout her life, Hepburn frequently worked as the designer’s muse and wore his label on the red carpet and in her films.

Givenchy’s label has transcended the decades and is still a powerhouse today. “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman wore a custom suit by the late designer at The 2018 Academy Awards.
