I was greeted at work today by the most wonderful discovery – I literally gasped when I saw the copy of Savage Beauty on my desk. Thank you Natalie! It’s no secret that I’ve been obsessing over Alexander McQueen for the last several months, watching past runway shows, and sending links with reckless abandon. The work is breathtaking.
I will now give my computer a well-deserved rest from endless McQueen queries so that I might devote the day to
complete immersion in one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen. You’ll find a couple of beautiful photos below, but there really is so much more.
P.S.: Thank you to Andrew Bolton and the entire team at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute for the stunning retrospective. Read the New York Times article about the show and the man: Designer as Dramatist, and the Tales He Left Behind
