Alexander McQueen S/S 2012
I could see Gaga-ish gowns and dresses but a lot more classy and very stunning!
Is it possible to get through a review of a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen show without mentioning that Royal Wedding? Perhaps not, but rest assured this collection was not designed solely with the Duchess of Cambridge in mind. Sure, she'll probably pop on one of the beautifully tailored suits that opened the show, but the more extravagant evening gowns are designed with a more experimental, longstanding McQueen fan in mind. Like Chanel, the McQueen show looked to the sea for inspiration, with these models seeming to rise from the deep with barnacle-like embellishment, mullet hems with trailing seaweed detail, encased headdresses and fluffy coral trims. It was stunning from start to finish.
