Givenchy Fall 2013 Runway Review

Leave it to Riccardo Tisci to pack in the most star-studded front row we've seen thus far: Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Jessica Chastain, Amanda Seyfried, Frank Ocean and Nicole Richie were all seated front row to see Givenchy's Fall 2013 collection.

Tisci stuck with many of his trademarks — structured gothic looks, leather, lace, structured outerwear, shear layers and this season, the rottweiler print was replaced with Bambi — but he introduced more relaxed silhouettes and unexpectedly colorful paisleys, plaid and rose prints.

The collection was its best when Tisci stuck to his trademarks and kept things relatively simple with outerwear featuring prominent toggles or dotted knits for example. When the collection progressed into heavily embellished, overly colorful and patchworked territory, many of the looks appeared cumbersome, bordering on unwearable.
