The Givenchy Winter '13 woman is strong — even the show notes described this collection as one defined by "future feminism." What exactly does that look like? To start, Riccardo Tisci sent out long sheer skirts, trimmed with embellishments, then topped them with tougher (and sometimes sparkly) knits. Long gone are the Rottweiler prints, now replaced by sweeter Bambi-printed sweatshirts. Zippered layers were styled with ruffled leather midi-length skirts, hints of rose prints and plaid were scattered throughout, and the outerwear showcased toggle-front detailing and wide waist-cinching belts. Meanwhile, the shoes — mid-calf boots with bold stripes — and rosebud hair caps rounded out each model's look with equal parts softness and structure. With a front row that included Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Jessica Chastain, Amanda Seyfried, Nicole Richie, and Frank Ocean, we're pretty sure Tisci's latest for Givenchy will be seen off-runway very soon.
