Kim Kardashian in her Givenchy wedding gown

Behold: Kim Kardashian's wedding dress has been revealed!

After months of speculation regarding which designer the reality star was going to wear for her wedding, People reports that the long-sleeved floral pattern design (above) was designed by none other than Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy. For those more familiar with Kim and less about fashion, he's the designer who famously dressed the 33-year-old in what made her look like an old lady's sofa at last year's Met Gala.

Tisci apparently also dressed Kim's groom, Kanye West, for their wedding - which took place in Florence, Italy yesterday.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Shows,

Kanye WestKanye West has escaped to Paris Fashion Week after being accused of assaulting a teenager.

The "Bound 2" hitmaker, who is being investigated by police after allegedly pummelling an 18-year-old man with over 30 blows after he made homophobic and racial slurs at the rapper's fiancee Kim Kardashian in Beverly Hills on Monday, was spotted arriving at Charles De Gaulle international airport in the French capital alone this morning.

"He's in town for fashion week, for the men's shows," a source said.

The rapper is expected to attend his friend Riccardo Tisci's Givenchy show at lunchtime on Friday.

Prosecutors are currently investigating the 36-year-old star, who pled no contest to attacking a photographer in 2008 and still has another battery case pending, for felony assault and battery connected to the incident on Monday.

Items Du Jour: Rooney Scores Dior, Doutzen Pulls an Angelina

Christy Turlington+ Considering she has both the face and body for high fashion, it's no wonder that actress Rooney Mara has signed with Dior to lend her face to their Down Town fragrance campaign. Naturally, her face is so gorgeously distracting that it's barely apparent that the photo is an ad for a perfume.

+ Model Doutzen Kroes imitates Angelina Jolie's famous 2010 Oscar dress, showing off some serious leggage at the Cannes Film Festival in Atelier Versace (albeit, looking somewhat like a superhero).

+ Despite her doctor's orders to avoid tight-fitting shoes, a very pregnant Kim Kardashian was spotted desperately trying to squeeze into her Givenchy heels.

+ Harper's Bazaar features supermodel Christy Turlington on next month's cover, which notes that she's still fabulous at 44 - as if we still didn't need reminding since she turned 40.

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss in 'Catching Fire'+ Fans of The Hunger Games and those with an affinity of couture gowns were excited to see the gorgeous dress Jennifer Lawrence sported in promotional images released for the film last week.

Kanye West

There's a lmit to when it comes to being fashion forward. Kanye West is clearly not aware of such a limit.

The fashion-conscious rapper performed at the 12.12.12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert in a Givenchy leather kilt and pants getup paired with what looks like a... printed sweatshirt? So is Kanye's black-on-black attire too much style for the general public to handle, or is it just an outright fashion disaster?

(Check out more questionable fashion looks here.)

Beyonce’s Fashion Disaster at Met Costume Institute Gala

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers,


Beyonce Knowles was a contender for worst dressed at the Met Costume Institute Gala in New York on Monday night.

The usually stylish singer donned a Givenchy Haute Couture gown for the occasion - which this year celebrated Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli - but the sequinned, feathered disaster failed to impress as she arrived at the event at the city's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Liv Tyler to Sing in Givenchy Ad

Liv Tyler for Givenchy cosmeticsLiv Tyler is set to make her singing debut for Givenchy.

The actress - who has been the face of the Very Irresistible Givenchy fragrance since its launch in 2003 - has teamed up with the brand and Sony Music Entertainment to work on "an electrifying meeting between the world of rock and the universe of perfume."

Her interpretation of the song - which is yet to be revealed - will be produced by David Andrew Sitek and could be in the style of her dad, Aeorsmith frontman Steve Tyler.

Earlier this year, the 34-year-old star - who has appeared in a number of adverts for the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned brand - admitted she prefers her perfume to become "part of" her but she isn't keen on changing her fragrance because she likes it when people know her smell: "I like having one perfume that I wear all the time, so it becomes part of you. When someone remembers your scent, it's incredible. I don't like it when you first spray on a fragrance. It's nice when you've put it on in the morning, then in the evening, you can subtly smell it."

Azzedine Alaia Turns Down Dior Job

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Designers, News, Rumors,

Azzedine AlaiaAzzedine Alaia turned down the chance to replace John Galliano at Christian Dior.

Galliano was sacked from the French fashion house earlier this year after he allegedly made anti-Semetic remarks in a Paris cafe and Alaia was offered the job of helming the label, but decided it wasn't for him. "Mr. Alaia wasn't interested. Flattered, but not about to pursue. The story of what happened with John was a sad story, he said when I asked him, and he didn't want to be part of the next chapter. And that's even before you got to the other stuff," journalist Vanessa Friedman reported in the Financial Times.

Alaia is not the first designer to be linked the creative director post at Dior. Riccardo Tisci - head of Givenchy - is also in the running and refused to confirm in recent interview what his future holds: "I don't know what will happen. Sincerely, I feel sorry for John. But for this moment I am leaving aside all the gossip of 'I am going here, I am going there,' because there is a lot of gossip circulating and there always will be. I will tell you, in this moment, I am very happy at Givenchy and it is a moment in which I am bringing the game to the next level. So I tell you, I feel at home. It's as if it were my son. I don't know how to explain it. It would be very difficult for me to leave."

Kate Moss, Lea T Round Off Last Love Covers

Lea T on Love

Riccardo Tisci's former assistant-turned-model Lea T snagged a second of five alternate covers of Love's Androgynous Issue -- the first of which she is photographed kissing Kate Moss -- only this time, she poses solo.

Photographed by Mert and Marcus, Lea's strong -- yet beautiful -- features arrest the viewer, as she stands centered in a vulnerable position. Powerful, no doubt, I wonder if the obnoxious words "This is Hardcore" really needed plastering in the middle of the image.

While many doubted the 28 year-old's place in Tisci's Givenchy ads -- pointing to her transgender story that stole fashion headlines and a revealing Vogue Paris editorial -- I think that this Love cover cements her place in the industry.

Kate's cover, on the other hand, is not so flattering (seen after the jump). While the supermodel's freckles are a plus, the styling efforts failed at making her pass as a guy. Also, someone on the editing team didn't know what to do with the contours and shadows of her chest.
