COUTURE: GIVENCHY AW 12

As always Riccardo Tisci’s latest collection for Givenchy Couture AW12 had me spiraling! Starting with Joan Smalls in a fully beaded fringe ombré top over metallic pants; followed by an intricate floor length fringe cape dress and another banger and another banger! The black and red beaded cape dress along with the black leather and velvet jumpsuit sent me over the top! I would gladly leave the couple of brown  and red with fur pieces but the rest – ugh come to momma! In my eyes The House of Givenchy can do no wrong!

GIVENCHY RAVE AD CAMPAIGN AW12/13

Welcome to the Givenchy Rave! Riccardo Tisci asked models Stella Tennant, Stef van der Laan, Daniela Braga, Simone Nobili, Jarrod Scott, and Rodrigo Braga to bring their best dance moves for his latest ad campaign; shot by high fashion ad campaign faves Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by fashionista fave Carine Roitfeld!

“It is about happiness and the freedom of expressing yourself with your body. It shows a dynamic, happy and fun world, which is what fashion needs,” the designer told WWD about the fractured images. “Stella represents modernity, elegance, masculinity and femininity at the same time, together with a dynamic, energetic beauty.”

The spots are slated to break in September issues of various international editions of Vogue, as well as Harper’s Bazaar and W.
