Make way for Givenchy!

Riccardo Tisci's first-ever stateside show has taken New York Fashion Week by storm, and it's no surprise really—not only is this one of week's major celeb attractions, but it also stands as the show offering the most seats to fans in the general public (we're talking 1,200). The show took place at Pier 26 in Hudson River Park at sundown, creating an equally contemplative and mesmerizing setting (we're talking models standing under drain pipes, wielding olive branches—and then there's that finale number set to a live rendition of "Ave Maria"…). Stars flocked to the much-anticipated presentation, including Tisci's celeb-besties Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

We knew Kim's outfit would drop jaws, and oh we were correct. Flaunting her maternity curves, Kim slipped into a stunning black design with a sheer illusion panel revealing—yep, you see it!—her ever-growing baby bump.

Nicki Minaj stepped out for the show in a full, pink-tinged leopard print ensemble featuring a tea-length dress and cape (that was extremely body-hugging, of course). Givenchy muses (and Topshop's newest brand ambassador) Ciara—in a booty-baring leotardand Amanda Seyfried were both spotted en route as well, with Amanda in a molten gold fluted skirt.

Vogue editrix (and NYFW's most omnipotent presence) Anna Wintour, along with Christina Ricci, Margot Robbie and supermodel Doutzen Kroes were also sighted heading in at show time. Plus, Tisci's designer pals Michael Kors, Alexander Wang and Vera Wang were on deck, quite literally, to lend their support.

Kendall Jenner took to the catwalk (natch) in a simple white peplum top and loose-fitting black trousers, making her fourth appearance for Tisci since the fall-winter 2014 season. It hasn't been too long: Back in June, Kendall hit the runway for Givenchy's presentation at Men's Fashion Week (you read that right) alongside supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Puerto Rican beauty Joan Smalls appeared in one of the most stunning looks from the collection: A floor-sweeping black gown featuring a voluminous organza skirt. Also of note: The supermodel squad at Tisci's showing all sported (faux) eyebrow-less looks, which has been done on Givenchy runways in the past.

In case you haven't caught our drift—Givenchy's first runway appearance in New York did not disappoint. Beyond the insanely impressive celeb turnout, Tisci's collection was, in a word, breathtaking. From monochrome separates and trim menswear pieces to stop and stare-worthy gowns, the spring-summer 2016 presentation offered more than food for sartorial thought. This was an experience.
