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?

He needs glasses. She looks like my grandmother’s sofa.

Give her a break! She’s always being picked on, and it’s so pathetic!

I want to know whose curtains they used to make this frock, and the designer clearly needs glasses, this is not punk

Not to many people can wear flowers, but in this case it was too much! Kim looked a hot mess in that get-up, and her being pregnant didn’t help much. Can’t believe she actually had that on, it also looked hot and uncomfortable. It remind me of grandma’s drapes from back in the day.

You may be Kim Kardahian and you may have a stylist and designers to dress you. However that does not mean that you have good taste and class when it comes to the clothes you wear and the way you present yourself.

He needs to put down that crack pipe.

She looked absurd, but what is he going to say – I blew it on the material? Of course he will defend his design to the bitter end. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but that was total overkill of flowers. Tacky, no class, low class take your pick.
