Late Lee McQueen of British design house Alexander McQueen seems to be making more waves in death than in life. As you already know, Sarah Burton, the new head designer at Alexander McQueen was responsible for the beauty, craftsmanship and traditional workmanship and technical construction of that went into the making of Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress.
Again, we held our breaths at this year’s Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Gala – a ball held once a year and co-hosted by Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of US Vogue in celebration of superheroes, supermodels, American style. This year’s ball held on the 3rd of May was around the work and memory of the late Alexander McQueen. It was the unveiling of Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, an exhibition devoted to the British designer.
On the red carpet, we saw a few stars in McQueen including Daphne Guinness in head-to-toe feathers with her trademark aplomb, Anna Dello Russo wore a black duchesse satin tailcoat, white shirt and gold fern embroidered trousers, teamed with gold snakeskin hobnail boots, Naomi Campbell wore a white crystal embroidered Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen tulle dress, ivory sandals and silver metal skull clutch, Hamish Bowles donned a tartan check cape and trousersand Gisele Bündchen in a scarlet McQueen gown.
