My Night Inside Riccardo Tisci’s Star-Studded Ibiza Birthday Bash


My Night Inside Riccardo Tisci’s Star-Studded Ibiza Birthday Bash


If you follow Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, or Riccardo Tisci on Instagram, then your feed was probably blown up this weekend with party pics from the Givenchy designer’s 40th birthday blowout in Ibiza. The Beats By Dre-sponsored event was attended by Tisci acolytes like Jessica Chastain, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Kendall Jenner, featured a performance by Kanye West, and even filled its bro quota by hosting Justin Bieber and Zac Efron. A guest we did not expect to see there was Montreal-based stylist Cary Tauben, who styled a Grimes shoot for us a couple of years ago, and lately has been making the rounds on the international party circuit. We know Cary from our own partying days back in Montreal, when he was always at the club blowing air kisses and twerking before anyone knew what that was. We hit him up on Facebook to find out what being at the party of the summer was like, and quickly found out that what happens in Ibiza, stays in Ibiza.

First of all, how did you get invited?
Riccardo Invited me. We met in Ibiza.

Where and how did you meet?
Through a mutual friend I’d rather not name.

How tight was security at the party?
Lots of security. But it was in a gated ranch in Ibiza.

What did you do when you first got in?
I wished Riccardo a happy birthday. Then Kanye performed a few songs and gave a little rant about how Riccardo accepted him and his wife.

How’d you get the picture with Kim?
I have a picture with Kris too. I was at the bathroom saw her, and asked for a photo. She was very nice. It was very small the party. 150 people, maybe less.

Did u see anything interesting?
It was very normal and fun and nice. Nothing crazy.

Did you hang out with Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, or Justin Bieber?
Kate and I hung out later, yeah.  Bieber was with Kendall the whole time. I talked to Jessica Chastain.

What did u talk about?
Life, Style, Clothes.

Was everyone wasted?
Everyone was drinking but not wasted. It was a celebration.

Where was the afterparty?
I don’t want to say too much. Naomi, Diddy, and people went to Amnesia, and we just hung out a house and danced with Beth Ditto and Kate.

Did you get any gift bags?
A fan on the way in and a scarf when we left.

What did you eat?
