Givenchy then and now

Givenchy, then and now....
Founded: 1952
Designers of note: Hubert de Givenchy, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Julien Macdonald, Ricardo Tisci
Famous for: The little black dress, Audrey Hepburn, a modern yet wholly ladylike feel
Currently doing: Techno-noir gowns juxtaposing the Rottweiler snarling suburbs of Paris with the red carpet circa 2025
Nasty Gal isn't so nasty anymore, in their clothing repertoire that is. This, believe it or not, romper, (who knew), brings a sort of new, fresh, Celine/ american apperal inspired look to the youth of America today. It looks a bit spandex infused, but, with careful pairing (which must look effortless) one could be able to pull this outfit off rather nicley.

Balenciaga then and now
