HUBERT DE GIVENCHY PASSES AT 91
Famous for the creation of one of the biggest French fashion houses, Hubert de Givenchy passed away in his sleep on Monday, March 12, as told by his long-time partner Philippe Venet, also a former couture designer.
The House of Givenchy is sad to report the passing of its founder Hubert de Givenchy, a major personality of the world of French Haute Couture and a gentleman who symbolized Parisian chic and elegance for more than half a century. His enduring influence and his approach to style reverberates to this day. He will be greatly missed.
The Givenchy brand has dressed a lot of A-listers through the decades, including Chadwick Boseman on the recent Oscars red carpet, but the most memorable and enduring relationship that the designer had was with the late Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn who, together with Givenchy, presented some of the most iconic looks in cinematic history.

KAIA AND PRESLEY GERBER APPEAR IN THEIR SECOND CALVIN KLEIN JEANS CAMPAIGN
Photogenic siblings (and supermodel Cindy Crawford’s progeny) Kaia and Presley Gerber followed their January debut as the new faces of Calvin Klein Jeans with a denim-on-denim themed spring 2018 campaign. Their new #MyCalvins ad was shot by Willy Vanderperre, who also took the photographs of the Kardashian siblings, Millie Bobby Brown, Paris Jackson, and Lulu Tenney for previous Calvin Klein ads.
After the online release of the campaign images, Kaia posted a series of videos on Instagram featuring her and her brother “being fools for @calvinklein,” playing thumb- and arm-wrestling, and doing trust falls.
The brand’s spring/summer 2018 collection seems to be a mix of dark and blue denim, cut-off jean shorts, distressed jeans, splatter prints (as seen on Kaia’s outift in the IG video), and Canadian tuxedos.
