Our favorite BAD GAL RIH RIH is back on tour and is turning heads. While it is without a doubt that the fans will get a great performance out of Rihanna, fashionistas will be entertained as well. Designer RICCARDO TISCI has created custom couture GIVENCHY costumes for the Diamonds World Tour.
VOGUE UK reports,
The tour kicked off in Buffalo last night, which saw Rihanna debut the looks on stage for the first time. With a hint of the “strong sensual iconography” seen at the Givenchy menswear autumn/winter 2013 collection, the costumes mix haute couture techniques with the designer’s “obsession” for heavy sportswear and streetwear elements.
“I enjoyed making these looks,” said Tisci. “Rihanna represents what young and amazing means today. She is punk and talented. She offers intelligence, energy and pure beauty.”
The opening outfit consists of a “dark and romantic” black floor-length ruffled silk-crepe cape and black nappa thigh-high boots. Other pieces include an embroidered parka, a white leather bra and silk satin mini shorts.
“Rihanna has what every girl inspires to have,” added Tisci. “She is the face of her generation.”
