Kim Kardashian's thirst for attention is a constant bug bare but there is no denying that she knows how to dress her body and come up with a good red carpet ensenble.
Last night was no different as she stepped out on the red carpet for the launch of brother-in-law Scott Disick's new restaurant wearing a black peplum dress from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. The peplum shape works around her curves beautifully and the black Bottega Veneta clutch bag and Christian Louboutin heels are the perfect finishing touches.
While most designers are showing the peplum silhouettes that Riccardo Tisci showed last season at Givenchy, he's already moved on. Last night he showed a collection heavily dominated by equestrian touches. It featured a lot more trousers than he's shown in the past in a simple jodhpurs style and leather popped up throughout on everything from riding boots to turtleneck dresses and cropped shorts. Suedes and furs on outerwear was introduced, though, to help break the leather up and add an interesting additional layer.
Where the start of the collection was very strong and masculine with the boxy cuts and tailoring, the end was a lot more feminine. The flash of a red subtly pleated dress under heavy weight leather coats helped add a womanly sensuality to some of the looks and several of the dresses came with lace inserts and spaghetti straps which showed off the chest and emphasised the bondage-esque scarf tied around the neck. After all, it wouldn't be Tisci at Givenchy without some sort of sexual undercurrent.
Fans of Riccardo Tisci will be happy with the designer's latest collection for Givenchy, but others might not be so convinced. This season, Tisci focused on leopard print, working it onto floaty chiffon maxi dresses and also incorporating it subtly on sheer panels on tops. Its strongest moments were definitely on sheer drop-shoulder tops teamed with simple black trousers with exposed silver zips and on a sleeveless jacket in the print, teamed with a simple white tee and black chiffon maxi skirt - think Emmanuelle Alt or Carine Roitfeld - but didn't work so well on a white sheer dress with slits across the chest.
Mini dresses came in white again, with silver zips along the hips, waist and down the front, teamed with white kick-flare trousers that were a bit too '60s. That said, the collection worked when Tisci incorporated his signature dark aesthetic on structured cropped jackets in black and tailored waistcoats contrasted with soft, floaty black chiffon pieces, playing with his signature masculine versus feminine dichotomy.
