Many of you have probably already seen, if not heard of, Beyonce’s iconic Givenchy dress that she wore to the MET Gala yesterday.
I loved the dress, not only because Beyonce literally “slayed” in it, but because Givenchy is one of the fashion brands that I absolutely admire. They’re classic, eccentric, bold and edgy, yet elegant.
It was love at first sight with Hubert de Givenchy’s designs after watching Audrey Hepburn’s movies. While Breakfast at Tiffany’s was where she wore the iconic black dress, the outfits that she wore in Charade are my personal favorites. The simplicity in the outfits is all you really need because the sleek, elegant designs speaks for itself.
While Hubert de Givenchy’s designs lean more towards classic and elegance, Riccardo Tisci switches it up by creating more of a gothic/modern, yet still maintaining that classic look. The outfit Rihanna wore for her Diamonds world tour is legendary.
His designs are probably one of the biggest inspirations for street wear, especially in South Korea.
