Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
The invitation for Riccardo Tisci's Givenchy after-party at the Ritz hotel last night promised an "intimate" affair. And—how's this for novelty?—intimate actually turned out to be an apt description of the buffet dinner for 50. Joining the likes of Francesco Vezzoli, Natalia Vodianova, and Kanye West were Tisci's personal trainer, his best friend from childhood, assorted family members, and his fashion show hair and makeup teams. "He is just the sweetest man in the world," effused Ciara, who first collaborated with Tisci when she was his date at Fashion Rocks in Rio last October. "In fact, he's so sweet, I'd bet he's even going to let me take these pants home with me." The spangled harem pants in question were couture (Fall 2009), and chances are good that the R&B diva will really get to keep them. Later in the evening, she revealed she was taking Tisci out to lunch today "to seal the deal."
