As far as we’re concerned, Liv Tyler does not take nearly enough advantage of her rock royalty heritage, which is why this video of her rocking out to a Givenchified (like it? we do) version of INXS’s “Need You Tonight” is so awesome.
Last night we were bored to tears by the super lame SAG Awards red carpet. Leave it to Rooney Mara to school everyone, all the way from Japan.
We love seeing couture on the red carpet, but Zoe Saldana‘s Givenchy gown left us feeling rather ambivalent.
If you thought it was dizzying how often Beyonce releases music videos for the songs on her new album 4, you’ll be downright flabbergasted by how often she changes super-high-fashion designer outfits in the video for her song Party.
Today is the day Kanye went on down to join the 99% (of which he’s not a part, despite having taken out loans recently) at Occupy Wall Street. He wore plaid. Givenchy plaid.
This was the week we welcomed Kate Middleton to the States! She looked awesome in McQueen, but her visit wasn’t without controversy. We also got our regular fashion-filled doses of Justin Bieber, Emma Watson, and Kanye — plus a surprise Sarah Jessica Parker reappearance.
Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci has demonstrated his affinity for a certain degree of otherness in his ad campaigns. So we were surprised by how unsurprised we were by Tisci’s choice of actress Liv Tyler as the face of his current beauty campaigns. Tyler is undeniably beautiful. But does she illustrate otherness? Not in the least.
We’re smack dab in the middle of Paris Haute Couture Week, a fashion phenomenon that happens twice a year and spawns a lot of jokes in which the word “haute” replaces the word “hot.” And even though it’s quite haute in France right now (see what we did there?) editors and stylists are looking at the clothes their very wealthy clients will be wearing once fall’s chill returns to the air.
When we learned Naomi Campbell was set to appear in Givenchy’s fall campaign, we were curious. When we heard last week that she’d be roaring in the ads and looking like a “dark ’50s pinup girl”, we just got downright excited. So here it is, the first look at Givenchy’s fall campaign, but really, who’s looking at the clothes?
Cool people talking to other cool people is the bread and butter of Interview, and every month we can’t wait to see who the magazine will pair together. Included in the June/July double issue is a little established fashion royalty/new fashion royalty tête-à-tête. So, what exactly did Donatella Versace and Riccardo Tisci chat about?
There are some times — well, a lot of times — that we wished we lived in France. This is one of them! Why? Because the folks over at Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessey are throwing open the doors of their ateliers, workshops, kitchens, and vineyards to the public.
From the moment John Galliano was fired from his post at Dior, Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci has been considered a frontrunner. The flames were fanned early, when Derek Blasberg tweeted that Tisci had been confirmed. Someone gave him the (maybe, possibly, probably) true dish backstage at a Katy Perry concert. And in an interview with W, Karl Lagerfeld said he would like to see Tisci go to Dior and Haider Ackermann take over at Givenchy.
Wedding season is officially here, and even though the royal nuptials aren’t going down for another week and a half, supermodel Natasha Poly got a head start on all the bridal madness.
Kanye West is known around the world for his “original” sense of style, right? So why has he been turning up at Fashion Weeks all over the world wearing the same Givenchy garments as other less famous people? Dare we ask, but is ‘Ye losing his magic spark?
Clearly, Riccardo Tisci wants us to think. After making waves and winning praise for casting Lea T., a transexual model, in his last few campaigns for Givenchy, the designer has asked an albino model named Stephen Thompson to front his ads for spring summer 2011.
Six months ago, Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci cast his muse and best friend Lea T in an ensemble ad campaign for the brand. Yesterday, the New York Times highlighted T. — along with James Franco’s Candy cover and Marc Jacobs‘ cross-dressing turn for Industrie — in a Thursday Styles article titled, “Bold Crossings of the Gender Line” about the “saturation” of “gender-bending” in the news and media.
We learned lots of things this week! The Kardashians‘ deal with MasterCard has turned sour, fake Vuitton bags are hard to come by and Karl Lagerfeld is a cocktail. Also: Angelina Jolie is a four-time Vogue cover girl, and magnetic underwear is a thing that exists.
You know how much we like to play this thing looks like that thing, but so rarely does our little game end up in court. But when the things you’re talking about are purses that have made big-name fashion companies many millions of dollars, you can bet somebody’s lawyers are going to get involved. Givenchy filed a lawsuit against BCBG Max Azria, claiming that the BCBG Rembrandt (right) handbag looks a little too much like Givenchy’s Nightingale purse to be a coincidence.
We’re mildly obsessed with royalty, so when we mentioned on Wednesday that Diane von Furstenberg was a princess, we figured there had to be more fashion designers with titles. And as it turns out, we were right.
