Li Yuchun, aka Chris Lee, came to our attention during Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. She has a fan base which eclipses Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus combined, several times over.
So it was not a surprise that when her ‘Why Me’ concert was announced, tickets sold out instantly.
Having showcased her androgynous sartorial style in Cannes, Riccardo Tisci rose to the challenge of creating five customs for the singer, an honour which has also been recently bestowed upon Rihanna and Beyonce.
From bold flame prints to the haute couture organza cape and the hand-embroidered skirt worn over tuxedo pants, the looks all referenced Tisci’s most iconic collections for Givenchy.
The looks matched his long-term obsession with the masculine–feminine contrast, which is why it was so apt that he designed this wardrobe for Li Yuchun as she embodies that contrast perfectly.
