McQueen’s Savage Beauty

My favourite dress being exhibited

An exhibition of Alexander McQueen’s masterpieces that is to be launched in New York Met’s Costume Institute was unveiled in London’s Ritz hotel.

This just confirms the late McQueen’s icon status, and I think Anna Wintour really gets it spot on when talking about his legacy on this article.

The launch will happen during this year’s Met ball and this really cements the late McQueen as an artist – rightly so!

The fact that the dresses were photographed on models then digitally altered to look like they are on mannequins for the catalogue,  makes the pictures at the Vogue gallery even more stunning!

I am in love – absolutely breath-taking pieces, in my humble opinion, a museum is indeed the right place for his works of art!

Since I wrote this post, the exhibition has launched and is at full swing – wish I could attend! See the Met blog for more details.
