    It's Riccardo Tisci's birthday today, and as we reminisce about all our favorite Givenchy collections since Tisci took over, we have to also revisit that moment from The Hills when Whitney and Lauren arrive in Paris to pick up samples, and Whitney pronounces Givenchy as ga-VIN-chee, only to be corrected by her driver.
