Back in June when Riccardo Tisci debuted the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2015 menswear collection in Paris, he included several female models including Irina Shayk and Adriana Lima. One look at these models and you could see Rihanna’s influence all over the outfits. It’s no secret that Tisci is a huge fan of Rihanna and the singer did sit front row at the Fall 2014 collection earlier this year. This left everyone wondering just how soon we would see the international star in Tisci’s Spring 2015 creations.
Well, the wait is ova! Friday night Rih surprised the audience at Lollapalooza in Chicago by joining Eminem for a performance of three songs – Stan, Love The Way You Lie and The Monster. The unexpected appearance provided a teaser for the upcoming The Monster Tour, which kicks off on August 7 in California. Rih’s SS2015 Givenchy outfit consisted of a strapless mini dress in a busy floral print that isn’t overwhelming thanks to the monochromatic colour palette, a black, leather demi bra with cut out detail and a sheer coat. The coat has the same print as the dress but here the floral pattern is blurred and muted for a softer look. Rihanna is also wearing combat boots from this collection. The boots feature the floral print but they are also embellished with cream pearls. Dana Lorenz of Fallon Jewelry created a one-of-a-kind pearl necklace with a cross medallion for this performance. You can also spot Rih’s Jacquie Aiche body chain.
