The Diva Wore Givenchy-------
The eagle-eyed Catherine Kallon at Red Carpet Fashion Awards performed one of her usual acts of fashion divination today: From a blurry, cell phone pic of Beyoncé shooting a new music video in the Mojave Desert, she’s managed to identify a Spring ’11 Givenchy Couture gown. (Time will tell if she’s right, but looks likely to us.)
But Queen B is only the latest diva to strap on one of the house’s showstopping couture creations. In the spirit of celebration, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite high-drama ladies in Riccardo Tisci’s couture.
