Kicking off her Diamonds world tour in Buffalo New York on Friday night Rihanna wowed fans with a series of outfits designed by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci. Labelled “urban haute couture elegance” by the designer the collection of costumes includes a floor-length black cape with ruffles and gold embroidery, thigh-high boots in black and white leather, a parka featuring a gold bullet motif, “couture goggles” and a plethora of leather bra and mini-shorts ensembles.“Rihanna represents what young and amazing means today,” Tisci said. “She is punk and talented. She offers intelligence, energy and pure beauty. She is the face of her generation.” What better way to catapult a world tour into the spotlight than wearing custom-made couture?
