It's all we can talk about in the office today: Riccardo Tisci's fabulous birthday bash. Givenchy's party-loving creative director rallied up his A-list friends to celebrate the milestone in Ibiza this weekend and everyone who's anyone was there - we're talking Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, Jessica Chastain and Jared Leto, Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner, Professor Green and, umm, Millie Mackintosh...
Aside from Mossy rewearing that fishnet number, it was the birthday boy who put a sartorial stamp on the occasion. Riccardo arrived wearing a pair of black Dr. Martens boots customised with crosses and skulls, black trousers and a black shirt featuring a circle of white roses on the breast pocket. And who should wear a near-identical outfit? Mr Kanye West, of course! The rapper wore the very same black Givenchy shirt as Riccardo complete with the white rose motif. If that doesn't say BFFS4LYF, we don't know what does.
Well, a gushing speech from Kanye probably. Yep, KW performed at the event, appearing on a balcony above the crowd to serenade his designer pal. Not one to hold back (who could forget that 45-minute wedding toast?), Kanye commended Monsieur Tisci for 'making s**t in Paris that the hood can relate to' and hailed him as a great influence to this generation. He finished it off by saying 'Friends Forever!' and leading a birthday cheer. N'aww.
It's just further proof that these two have the best bromance in fash-land. Digging through the picture archives, we've uncovered snaps of Kanye and Riccardo partying up a storm since way back in 2008 (check out the flashback gallery below). There's even photos of Kanye in his Amber Rose days, posing backstage in between his lady love and the Italian designer at the Givenchy show in 2010. And ever loyal, Riccardo returned the favour when he FROWed at Kanye's Paris Fashion Week gig. As well as having wonderfully chic wardrobes, the pals often showcase matching pouts, but we can't get enough of them giggling together like teens. Talk about a bromance.
And long may it continue! The fashion friendship has brought us THIS memorable fashion moment, it's resulted in Kanye's greatest tour outfits and provided the most matchy-matchy wedding moment of our time. Who could forget that it was Mr Tisci who dressed not only Kim Kardashian on her wedding day but the groom himself and even little North, all in co-ordinated Givenchy ensembles? Exactly. And now Riccardo's joined in the synchronised style game, things can only get better.
