Rihanna’s Tour Wardrobe Gets A Serious Upgrade
Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, who also dressed Madonna for last year’s Super Bowl, has designed a custom couture wardrobe for Rihanna’s Diamonds tour, which kicked off over the weekend.
With Tisci calling the costumes “a symbol of female empowerment and urban haute couture elegance,” expect to see a mix of Rihanna’s sexy-punk style mixed with Givenchy’s edgy opulence and dark romance (think: lots of black and gold).
According to WWD, Rihanna’s “Diamonds” costumes include a floor-length cape and thigh-high white leather boots, a parka with a “gold bullet motif,” mini-shorts paired with leather bras, and even “couture goggles” — all with lots and lots of gold embellishments.
“Rihanna represents what young and amazing means today,” Tisci said of the costumes. “She is punk and talented. She offers intelligence, energy and pure beauty. She is the face of her generation.”
