Gypsy Queens

Riccardo Tisci never fails to deliver with his inspired casting choices at Givenchy and the cast of models assembled for the Fall/Winter 2012 Haute Couture collection was no exception. With inspiration derived from the duelling impulses of Parisian couture during the sixties combined with modern day gypsy street looks from Tisci's provenance in Southern Italy, the cast of beauties was indeed a veritable melange of multi-ethnicities. Ethiopian supermodel Liya Kebede and Bangalore-native Lakshmi Menon led the charge accompanied by Tisci's in-house muse Lea T from Brazil. Added to the mix were Puerto Rican modelling sensation Joan Smalls, Sudanese beauties Grace Bol and Ajak Deng, and relative newcomers Grace Mahary from East Africa, Brazilian bombshell Daniela Braga, Maritinique's Cora Emmanuel and Angolan stunner Maria Borges. In years to come, Tisci will be applauded not only for his incredible creative genius but also for his commitment towards bringing diversity to the European runways.
