You can credit Ariana Grande with all but inventing lamp-shading. Now, if one was to sweep waist-length inches into a ponytail, a Grande reference would inevitably be made. There is no chance of wearing a suede thigh-high boot without appearing to cosplay the pop singer. Ariana Grande’s style uniform is just that…a uniform. So what could an Ariana Grande luxury line possibly look like?
We’re about to find out. After a month of teasing the collaboration, Givenchy has announced their new celebrity partner will be the megastar herself—all delivered via the hashtag #ARIVENCHY. Despite maintaining her iconic pony, Grande seems to be diversifying her look somewhat for the French label. The 15 images uploaded to the brand’s Instagram show Grande donning a green suit, an off-the-shoulder, puff-sleeve mini dress, as well as a double-breasted coat.
It’s unclear whether Grande has had a hand in the design process or is merely modeling a Givenchy Grande-inspired line. If the former, there’s little wonder as to why eyebrows have been digitally-raised aplenty in the Givenchy comment section.
While Grande could certainly have the pick of the crop when it comes to designers, she has not exactly earned the title of ‘fashionista’ the same way as pop princess contemporaries Rihanna or Lady Gaga. Still, there are pieces so distinctly Ariana Grande that, if Givenchy knows what’s good for them, will sell en masse. And we have some ideas of what might work best.
1. Anything baby doll
2. An immovable liquid eyeliner titled “Into Yeux”
3. A two-piece with tulle-tutu skirt
4. Hip-high suede boots
5. Givenchy-branded hair extensions

7. Seven rings (literally a collection of seven rings)
8. An XXXL hoodie
