When Hubert met Audrey Hepburn in 1957, both of their careers would be set in motion on the big screen and on the runway. Hepburn was also the face of Givenchy's first fragrance L'Interdit. Instead the diminutive Audrey showed up, dressed in simple cigarette trousers, a T-shirt and sandals.

Aiming to reach a wider market, Givenchy launched a line of upscale ready-to-wear and accessories in the 1960s.
