If you think Rihanna is just going to wear some plain white tee and nondescript booty shorts on her Diamonds World Tour, think again. The super star kicked off her tour in Buffalo, New York on Friday, and turned the stage into a runway with some custom Givenchy duds.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally made their Paris Fashion Week debut as parents-to-be at Sunday night’s Givenchy fall 2013 show.
We’re not sure we’d want to walk around wearing a t-shirt with our own face on it, but if it were a custom design from Riccardo Tisci? Then maybe we’d reconsider.
While the rest of the fashion industry continues the ongoing game of musical chairs that has brought shakeups at the helms of Saint Laurent, Dior, Balenciaga, and Jil Sander, we can breathe easy knowing that at least one of our favorite designers is staying put for a while.
Riccardo Tisci is getting by with a little help from his friends for Givenchy‘s Spring 2013 campaign.
Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci has been named GQ‘s Designer of the Year. As such, the Southern Italian designer is the subject of a lengthy profile in this month’s mag, which, if you remember, features a naked Rihanna on the cover.
Yesterday we got some very exciting news courtesy of the online rumor mill that Givenchy would be collaborating with H&M for a collection due out in 2013. And today, the French fashion house has responded.
While usually the combination of Cate Blanchett and Givenchy spells sartorial perfection, in this particular instance we’re on the fence.
We feel like we should warn you now, everything about the photos that you’re about to see is so severely pretty it almost hurts.
We’ve been excited for Riccardo Tisci‘s religion-themed issue of Visionaire for quite some time now. The 228-page tome will set you back $425, but we were able to round up some of the most impressive images from the issue.
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.
This was the week of couture — Dior didn’t fare too well, and Vogue was banned from Alaïa. Kate and Prince William continued their tour of Canada, Terry Richardson took pictures of Kate Moss‘s wedding, and Nicola Formichetti refused to work with fat people. Also, your lipstick has bugs in it.
Paris Couture Week is nothing without parties, and the one model Natalia Vodianova threw at Valentino Garavani‘s Paris home, the Chateau de Wideville. Vodianova and Valentino turned his house into a Russian winter wonderland for her White Fairy Tale Love Ball, which raised money for her organization that helps disadavantaged children, the Naked Heart Foundation. And with two notable exceptions, mostly everyone turned up in dazzling white couture dresses.
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.
This was the week of the CFDA Awards — so much fashion, people! There was also a fair amount of fashion at the German state dinner (Michelle Obama, duh). Marc Jacobs‘s ad campaigns were on our mind, as were Kanye West‘s dead model video and Karl Lagerfeld‘s glassware. And, as usual, Kate/Princess Catherine/Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge/whateverhernameis looked stunning.
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?
Despite the fact that Dior has repeatedly stated they won’t be announcing John Galliano‘s replacement until the fall, the Riccardo Tisci rumor drum beats on — which is why New York Magazine had no choice but to ask him about it during their 54 minute long interview in this week’s issue.
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.
