Riccardo Tisci hosted a private party in a London hotel suite and only a few people made the guest list, including models Mariacarlo Boscono, Julia Nobis, Jamie Bochert, and Kendall Jenner. (Oh, and never one to miss a party, Peter Brant Jr. made the cut as well.) Party dress code: Givenchy Fall 2014 only. Tisci enlisted photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to capture the models sporting his latest looks, including sheer, pleated skirts; softly printed dresses; and pussy-bow blouses. The resulting images make up the buzzy Givenchy Fall 2014 ad campaign. In case you weren’t invited to Tisci’s rave, we’ve got the video to watch right now. Here, the film makes its world premiere exclusively on Style.com.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you’re well aware that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally exchanged vows in Florence, Italy, this weekend. And naturally, the pair wore custom Givenchy designs by their fashion-world bestie, Riccardo Tisci. While Kanye opted for a black tux with trousers that resembled biker pants, Mrs. West donned a lacy play on look 11 from the Fall ’11 couture collection. While the gown’s mermaid train and sheer white inserts weren’t quite virginal, the look was a tasteful, almost classic choice for the ever-racy Kim K. Cheers to the happy, designer-decked couple.
For the past few months, rumors have been swirling that Frida Giannini was about to be replaced in her post as creative director at Gucci , with Riccardo Tisci often touted as her potential successor. Now, Giannini has addressed the talk in an interview with WWD. “These rumors are self-generated, and even engaged François-Henri Pinault, who came to Rome and told me they were not true,” she said. “Actually, he was concerned that the rumors would not let me work serenely.” In fact, Giannini notes, she has just renewed her contract with the storied Italian house and is busy preparing to celebrate her tenth year at its helm in 2015.
