Riccardo Tisci Givenchy Page 1
Believe it or not, there is more buzz around Riccardo Tisci besides his role in tomorrow’s MET Gala. The Givenchy Creative Director recently unveiled a costume which he designed for a spring performance of Boléro by Opéra de Paris, the leading opera company in France.
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.
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?
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.
At some point while we were relaxing after dinner last night, fashion writer and man-about-town Derek Blasberg got a message that’s been retweeted and reblogged around the fashion world: “I was just told backstage at the @KatyPerry concert (of all places!) that Riccardo Tisci is CONFIRMED at Dior.”
