Givhan is remembered throughout Washington for many of her Style pieces including one about a parka - “the kind of attire one typically wears to operate a snow blower” - worn by Dick Cheney at a gathering to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. She also did a rather scathing review of new Wizards uniforms, and one likening an outfit worn by Condoleezza Rice to something Keanu Reeves wore in “The Matrix.”
Givhan has bylines with Newsweek/The Daily Beast, Vogue and the Detroit Free Press. She is also currently writing The Battle of Versailles: The Night American Fashion Stumbled into the Spotlight and Made History, “about how race, politics, economics, and shameless flackery sparked a 1973 French-American runway spectacle that changed the trajectory of the American fashion industry.”
