Talk about burying the lede. As a follow up to its Met Ball coverage, Women’s Wear Daily has a series of soundbites from Ricardo Tisci of Givenchy up on its site today. He talks about how pleased he was with how all his looks turned out (including Beyonce‘s, oy), but the interesting part doesn’t come until the end, when he discusses Kim Kardashian. (No, I never thought I would type that sentence.)
When questioned about Kim Kardashian’s floral gown, which a lot of people apparently hated but which we here at The Gloss thought was lovely, he said this:
“She is a really good friend, and I am very happy she came to the Met for the first time. 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. It will be a family that I will be close to. 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.”
Hold the phone. Did Ricardo Tisci just share some insider knowledge about Kimye’s plans to marry? That is so distracting that I’m not even going to mention how you cannot actually have a “punk moment” with a “romantic beautiful flower-printed dress.” Maybe he’s just assuming they are going to get married because Kim Kardashian loves to get married in lavish TV ceremonies? Or maybe Kim is going to fake us out entirely and marry a different “really good friend” of Tisci’s, like, say…Frank Ocean? Who knows.
Oh, and fuck it: you cannot have a “punk moment” with a “romantic beautiful flower-printed dress.” You can have a pretty moment, or a show stopping moment, or even a senior moment, but flowers can only be punk if you fuck them up or get them dirty somehow, or at the very least, pair them with combat boots.
