Riccardo Tisci, the deisgner behind Kim Kardashian's controversial Met Ball dress, has defended how the reality TV star looked in the creation.
A sofa, Mrs Doubtfire, a pair of curtains and Homer Simpson are just a few of the (rather harsh) things Kim Kardashian and the Givenchy dress she wore to the Met Ball (complete with gleeves (gloves-sleeves)) have been compared to. The full-length floral number was certainly, err, unexpected - we're more used to seeing Kim in plunging, pencil-skirted numbers - and the abuse attention it garnered hasn't been ignored by its designer, Givenchy's creative director Riccardo Tisci, who's spoken out in defence of both the dress and its wearer.
"I love Kim. Doing maternity was fantastic. I wanted to have a Kim Kardashian moment, because Kim always supports me," Tisci told WWD , before calling her "the future wife" of his good friend Kanye West (so they are getting married?). Kardashian reportedly trusted Tisci so much that she let him do whatever he felt right, which turned out to be a floral high-necked, be-gloved, slashed-to-the-thigh number that didn't exactly stick to the event's Punk theme.
"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," continued Tisci. "I think she looked amazing. She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career."
