What many may have thought was a strange addition to a dress, may have been hiding something much bigger than even the Met Gala itself!
When Kim Kardashian arrived to Monday night’s event, she was greeted with some not-so-nice criticism of her gown, a floral gown with gloves attached. The custom Givenchy Couture gown was designed exclusively for Kim by the brand’s creative director Riccardo Tisci, and he thought that the dress was amazing, but he may have slipped up and let the cat out of the bag about Kim & Kanye’s engagement.
In a recent interview with WWD, Riccardo defended the dress by saying:
She is a really good friend, and I am very happy she came to the Met for the first time. I love Kim. Doing maternity was fantastic. I wanted to have a Kim Kardashian moment, because Kim always supports me. She is the future wife of a really good friend of mine. I wanted to have a moment of family … Kim, Kanye and the baby. It will be a family that I will be close to.
Kim said, ‘Ricky, I love what you’re doing so much, I am in your hands.’ I said, we should give her our punk moment with a romantic beautiful flower-printed dress. I have dressed many pregnant women in the past. People can say what they want. To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers. I think she looked amazing. She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career.
Do you know who else gets flowers? Brides.
Maybe Riccardo was just thinking ahead, but we found the addition of gloves to be an interesting choice. Could it have been covering an engagement ring? We’re not sure, but if we have learned anything from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, it’s that engagement secrets don’t stay secret for long.
