Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci Created Rihanna’s Opening Costume on ‘Diamonds’ Tour

For the look, the pop diva brought in Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci, who called the songstress a “representation of what young and amazing means today.”

Riccardo was up for the challenge. After all, creating hot looks is nothing new for this designer—Madonna wore his threads for her Super Bowl performance last year, and Kanye received flack for rocking his skirt on stage.

To kick off the show, Rihanna wore a custom made cape inspired by Givenchy’s timeless organza cape. The black floor-length ruffled silk crepe with 3D collar embroideries was the first piece to appear on stage before the costumes big reveal.

“I enjoyed making these looks,” Tisci told WWD. “Rihanna is punk and talented. She offers intelligence, energy and pure beauty. She is the face of her generation.”
