Riccardo Tisci is whipping up more for Rihanna than some ‘ol t-shirt emblazoned with her likeness. The Givenchy creative director also crafted two of the singer’s costumes for her now-underway ‘Diamonds’ tour. The bespoke couture looks made their debut on the March 8th opening show in Buffalo. For the singer, Tisci created a Swarovski element-encrusted parka (pictured above), underneath which is a black and white leather bra with gold buckles and black satin shorts. He also designed a “floor-sweeping ruffled silk crepe cape in black with a embroidered collar and a pair of black-and-white leather thigh-high boots with lacing details.” According to the folks at Givenchy, the outfits are supposed to represent “female empowerment and urban haute couture elegance.” Do you think these costumes convey such lofty notions?
