BE MY GUEST: Riccardo Tisci, couturier at Givenchy, was perhaps the most surprising guest at Donatella Versace’s after-show dinner Sunday night at the Via Gesù palazzo. But he and Versace go way back. Indeed, Tisci said Gianni and Donatella are among the principle reasons he went into fashion. “Donatella for us is like a Sophia Loren. She’s a great representative of Italy,” Tisci said. “It’s a friendship.” Tisci said he was in Como to visit his mother on Saturday and stayed on an extra night to take in Versace’s show and party before rushing back to Paris to ready his shows for Givenchy men’s and couture. His review of Donatella’s show: “Very Versace, in an elegant way.”
