Hubert de Givenchy joked that Audrey Hepburn would be elegant in a potato sack. And she probably would have been. Her own innate sense of style met its equal in the talents of Givenchy. They complimented one another. So when I discovered this dress from the garde robe of a well known couture client, I knew immediately that this was Givenchy at his most beautiful, most elegant, most alluring. He understood the woman should wear the dress and not the dreaded other way around.
This Givenchy haute couture dress in a fluid soft velvet has clusters of gold organically shaped sequins trimmed in patent leather. The front is simple and classic and the back dips suggestively low.
It is very Audrey Hepburn.
