Although Rihanna has had to cancel an early show date on her Diamonds World Tour because of laryngitis (save your shade), she kicked off her musical trek of melodic goat cris in Buffalo, New York wearing custom looks by House Mother Kanye’s favorite label Givenchy on Friday.
Rih Rih entered the stage in a Dr. Bobby Jones rejected design for BET’s Celebration of Gospel: a floor-sweeping black ruffled silk crepe cape with an embroidered collar and a pair of black-and-white nappa thigh-high boots with lacing.
She then removed the cape to reveal a hooded jacket, a black and white leather “bondage feel” bralet and black silk high-waisted shorts.
“I enjoyed making these looks: Rihanna represents what young and amazing means today. She is punk and talented,” said Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci. “She offers intelligence, energy and pure beauty. Rihanna has what every girl aspires to have. She is the face of her generation.”
In addition to Givenchy, Rihanna wears creations from Adam Selman, who worked on her River Island collection, and designers like Raf Simons. Check out more flicks of her new tour costumes below.
