French fashion icon Givenchy dead at 91, reports say

French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, who dominated the industry for more than three decades and whose clothes were worn by movie stars Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, has died at the age of 91.

Born into an aristocratic family in the provincial city of Beauvais on February 21, 1927, Count Hubert James Taffin de Givenchy was the younger son of the marquis of Givenchy Lucien Taffin de Givenchy and his wife Beatrice.

"He revolutionized global fashion with the timelessly stylish looks he created for Audrey Hepburn, his great friend and muse for over 40 years", the house of Givenchy said in a statement on Monday.

The artistic director of Givenchy, Clare Waight Keller, said on her official Instagram account she is "deeply saddened by the loss of a great man and artist I have had the honor to meet..." The designer was known for styling his muse and British actress Hepburn.

The designer's nephews and nieces, and their children, share Mr Venet's grief, his statement added.
