The music world can’t resist Givenchy! The label has become synonymous with style and music, not only because Madonna chose the label for her Super Bowl performance last month, but for its edgy attitude and fierce design. The Givenchy Autumn/Winter 2012 show walked in Paris Sunday night (March 4) and attracted quite the star-studded front row, including Alicia Keys, Diddy and Kanye West watched as equestrian gear walked down the runway.
Keys stunned the crowd as she entered in a white tuxedo jacket placed delicately over her shoulders. On Monday Keys took in Stella McCartney’s Ready-to-Wear show with none other than Paul McCartney and his third wife, Nancy Shevell.
At Givenchy, Kanye kept his look cool in a white Givenchy sweater with silver studs around the collar, black jeans, and a Cartier bracelet. Diddy looked dapper in a black suit paired with a leather shirt for an added edge. “People always ask what I would love to do, and I think it’s going to Paris for the shows,” he told WWD. Diddy showed up at the show with rapper Shyn.
The show began with pounding music, blended with a horse-galloping tempo. However the collection was so spectacular guests seemed unfazed by the loud sound. “Oh my gosh, I could barely pay attention because I was too swept away in the clothes. I loved them!” Keys said after the show.
So what did this dazzling collection look like? Blending polo’s and bondage gear, Givenchy designer, Riccardo Tisci redefined what we think of to be preppy. Riding jackets and racing boots were parried with black leather skirts and red, brown, and black furs patchworks. The overall glamour rock look was drenched in leather and will surly be spotted on the music industry’s top names this fall!
