Fresh Fits: 10 Times Hip-Hop Rocked Givenchy
The fashion world was rocked by the passing of Hubert de Givenchy, who died at the age of 91 this past Saturday (Mar. 10). The designer was the founder of the luxury brand Givenchy, which is responsible for iconic looks worn by Hollywood royalty, such as Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor.

You may not realize it, but the iconic designer has been worn everywhere from sold-out hip-hop tours to the BET Awards to the Grammys. While he may no longer be here, the iconic looks and eye-popping creativity of Hubert de Givenchy will live on forever.
