Riccardo Tisci has come forward to address the Met Gala maternity gown he made for Kim Kardashian, which has incurred several furniture comparisons and at least one Mrs. Doubtfire "who wore it better." He told WWD that Kim is "really good friend" and "the future wife of a really good friend of mine" and that "[she] said, 'Ricky, I love what you're doing so much, I am in your hands.'" We assume Ricky took that literally, and proceeded to encase her hands in sloves (sleeve gloves).

He continues, "I said, we should give her our punk moment with a romantic beautiful flower-printed dress. I have dressed many pregnant women in the past. People can say what they want. To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers. I think she looked amazing. She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career."
