It's no secret that Italian fashion designer Riccardo Tisci has a number of close celebrity friends. Probably first to come to mind are it couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Upon forging a relationship with 'Ye years ago, Tisci then got to know Kim off of the strength of Kanye, as he then became quite find of her as well.

At the time, the Armenian goddess wasn't nearly as accepted in fashion circles, but Riccardo didn't care. It was a family thing. "By nobody," Tisci said when speaking on Kim and her lack of acceptance. "And she’s a sweet girl. And Kanye and me, we did it together. Every designer is dying to dress her now. I didn’t care what people thought about Kim. In the beginning, I met her because of my respect for Kanye, and then I liked her a lot and we became friends. I got killed because of this. But I didn’t care. That is a friend, you see. And this is why, when they got married, they asked me to dress them. They say, 'You’ve always been with us. You’ve been a real friend.' If I like somebody, I like somebody. If I don’t like somebody, I don’t like somebody."

Tisci has also had his hands of design in Kanye and Jay Z's Watch the Throne tour, Rihanna's 'Diamonds' tour and Jay Z and Beyonce's 'On the Run' tour, to name additional Kanye West connections.
