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

Rihannas cape for Diamonds TourNext the “Stay” songstress revealed a masculine over-sized black printed and hand embroidered parka, channelling Riccardo’s signature mix of streetwear and haute couture.

Under the parka, Rihanna wore a black and white nappa leather bra with gold stars embroideries and gold buckles. The pop star paired the multi-strapped bra with a pair of silk satin mini-shorts made in a matching print.

Riccardo enhanced her look with a shark tooth gold metal necklace with an engraved military plaque in the back—reading the word ‘RIRI’. Haute couture sunglasses with gold metal hardware elements and white crystal stud earrings finished the look.

According to Givenchy, the costume is a symbol of “female empowerment and urban haute couture elegance.” We couldn’t agree more.
