Kim Kardashian's Met Gala Designer: 'I Think She Looked Amazing'

When Kim Kardashian hit the Met Gala red carpet Monday, the reaction from PEOPLE readers was, shall we say, underwhelming. Nearly 1500 people clicked the “angry face” and more than 400 people weighed in on the bold look, which consisted of a head-to-toe laced turtleneck gown with attached, matching gloves and shoes in the same floral fabric.

Well, the designer, Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, heard your criticism, and he thinks you’re crazy.

“People can say what they want … I think she looked amazing,” Tisci told WWD. “She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career.”

He also explained how he came up with the concept for her controversial rose-print gown. “I said, we should give her our punk moment with a romantic beautiful flower-printed dress,” he said. “To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers.”

And Tisci is just as excited for the upcoming Kim and Kanye collaboration as we are. “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.” Hopefully that means we can look forward to onesies with matching gloves!

Tell us: Do you agree with Tisci about Kardashian’s gown?

Her designer will say that she looked amazing, he gets paid to say so. She is a beautiful woman, however, with being pregnant, and being a thicker woman, she should not wear such form fitting clothes. Plus with all the flowers on the dress, etc, it was not flattering. Sorry, this was not a good choice.

I don’t care how much the designer likes the dress, it doesn’t work at all. And, there is nothing “punk” about the floral print. It just doesn’t make sense. This look would be horrible on anyone…and worse on Kim.

Of course her designer will say she looked amazing – he’s the one who created the thing! She looks like a big couch! I have nothing against pregnant women wearing something form fitting, but to be covered practically from head to toe in that print is horrible!!! There are definitely better choices for her out there – she (or her stylist) just doesn’t know how to choose them.

I think she looked ridiculous.

That’s because he dressed her! Duh.

How much did Kanye pay him to say that?! Or maybe she’s the ONLY pregnant woman he’s ever dressed!

I’m sorry but I don’t care who wore this, it’s heinous.

Her stylist & designer dressed her so, they would never admit to failure. Pregnant or not this wasn’t her best look. It has nothing to do with form fitting…’s the total outfit.The Rose Bowl is looking for their missing float.

What else is he supposed to say? Kanye is his best friend and he created that monstrosity! FAIL…
