Behind The Style: Rihanna’s Riccardo Tisci-Designed ‘Diamonds World Tour’ Wardrobe

Rihanna kicked off her Diamonds World Tour in Buffalo, NY a couple of days ago—rocking some of the latest threads.

Her dope wardrobe was a custom design by Givenchy’s very own Creative Director, Ricardo Tisci. The 38-year-old Italian designer has become very notable in the fashion industry, and his name makes waves from the fashion scenes of Los Angles and Atlanta to the runways in Paris, France.

He’s credited for bringing Givenchy back from troubled times and restoring the elegance that the brand once had. Most notably, Tisci is the main inspiration for Kanye’s leather kilt steez during the Watch the Throne Tour.

As far as designing stagewear for music’s favorite Good Girl Gone Bad (gone Grammy-winning pop star), Tisci says to Vogue, “I enjoyed making these looks. Rihanna represents what young and amazing means today. She is punk and talented. She offers intelligence, energy and pure beauty.” He followed up by adding, “Rihanna has what every girl inspires to have; she is the face of her generation.”

Rih’s head-to-toe digs feature a sporty floor-length black ruffled silk crepe cape—with an embroidered collar—and topped off with a pair of black and white nappa thigh-high boots. Under the cape is a parka (embroidered with engraved golden “Ri-Ri” bullets), a black and white leather bondage-esque bracelet, and silk/satin black hot pants.

Rih gave one of the new designs some love on Instagram back in February. See below:
