The words Audrey style" conjure images of ballet flats, little black dresses, bateau necklines, capri pants, and countless stunning fashions. Audrey Hepburn, the fashion icon, got her start in the early 1950s, just as a young French designer, Hubert de Givenchy, was beginning his legendary career. Together Audrey and Givenchy were a brilliant meeting of minds. Over the course of their forty-year friendship and professional partnership, both became fashion icons whose collaborations influenced trends for generations to come. Audrey and Givenchy is a celebration of their work both onscreen and off, featuring fashion profiles on such classics as Sabrina , Breakfast at Tiffany's , Charade , How to Steal a Million , and perhaps greatest of all, Funny Face (who could forget the many looks of Audrey's transformation from dowdy librarian to high-fashion model?). Also covering their greatest off-screen fashion hits for awards shows and events and featuring photos throughout, Audrey and Givenchy is a stunning showcase of the most influential teaming of star and designer in fashion history.
