Rihanna to Rock the House in Riccardo Tisci Fashions

Rihanna/Riccardo Tisci

Oddly, rather than promote her own clothing line, Rihanna has chosen Riccardo Tisci to design her concert fashions. Do you think she made the right choice or should have gone with her own creations?

Riccardo Tisci has become a go-to guy for haute stage costumes. Rihanna kicked off her Diamonds World Tour Friday night in Buffalo in a custom Givenchy couture. A floor-sweeping ruffled silk crepe cape in black with a embroidered collar and a pair of black-and-white leather thigh-high boots with lacing details was the first thing the singerís fans saw when she walked on stage.

The dark, yet romantic mood underlying Rihannaís music and Tisciís fashions continued throughout the lower layers of the singerís costume. Taking cues from his fall menís collection, Tisci designed a printed parka featuring gold bullet motifs, embroidery and Swarovski Elements. Underneath was a black-and-white leather bra with golden buckles and starry embroideries, juxtaposing a pair of black silk and satin mini shorts. Read More
