I would dearly love to be in New York right now.
The Met’s retrospective exhibit of Alexander McQueen’s couture looks simply stunning. These dresses are the work of a true genius, and it would be amazing to see them in person.
Haunting and bold. McQueen’s work is one of the best examples of the kind of couture that is so striking and, let’s face it—unusual—that it couldn’t be worn on the street or even on the red carpet. Nevertheless, these clothes are imbued with a rare kind of artistic vision. They are art.
