The Givenchy couture show, designed by Riccardo Tisci, is one of the most incredible collections I have ever laid eyes on. The intricacy of the embroidery and the details are like nothing I have ever seen before. The small collection was very reminiscent of the human skeleton, and while most of the pieces are not overly wearable, they are just too gorgeous to complain about.
I really haven’t seen anything like it. It is the craftsmanship and Victorian charm of Alexander McQueen mixed with Tisci’s sexiness and Givenchy’s beautiful glamor. It is not tacky, costumey or cheesy at all, which it could have so easily been. To me it is so eerily angelic, delicate but striking.
I am not in love with the bottom it is a little too 70’s for me, but the detail of the bodice is insane.
The goat hair jacket looks so sleek and cozy, and the bottom of the see through dress is divine.
I really appreciate the 20’s influences in the dress, from the all over fringe to the bolero like top.
I really hope this is worn to an award show or benefit, maybe Tilda Swinton or Anna Wintour.
Now we see where Lara Stone’s post-wedding dress came from. It is even more extraordinary in this length.
I love feathers. On everything. Plus, this reminds me of the Vogue September cover with Sienna Miller.
Meet my wedding dress.
