Riccardo Tisci Defends Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala Skin-Tight Floral Dress

Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci dressed a total of 13 major guests for this year’s Met Gala, including co-chair Rooney Mara, Debbie Harry, Beyoncé and Madonna. Several men also got the Givenchy treatment, including Pedro Almodóvar, Frank Ocean, Brahim Zaibat and Kanye West. The highlight of the night was Tisci’s maternity effort for a very pregnant Kim Kardashian — a custom skintight floral dress — which was panned almost as soon as she stepped on the red carpet. “She is a really good friend, and I am very happy she came to the Met for the first time,” Tisci told WWD. “I love Kim. Doing maternity was fantastic. I wanted to have a Kim Kardashian moment, because Kim always supports me. She is the future wife of a really good friend of mine. I wanted to have a moment of family…Kim, Kanye and the baby.”

Tisci continued, “Kim said, ‘Ricky, I love what you’re doing so much, I am in your hands.’ I said, we should give her our punk moment with a romantic beautiful flower-printed dress. I have dressed many pregnant women in the past. People can say what they want. To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers. I think she looked amazing. She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career.”
