Alexander McQueen:The Horn of Plenty




I have been fawning over Alexander McQueen's Fall/Winter '09 Collection for some time but this video of the runway show really blew my mind; you MUST watch it! For some high quality viewing (followed by some rabid consumption) go here:

"This is power dressing at its most elaborate and extreme."

The makeup artist from Alexander McQueen’s show, Peter Philips, said: “We were inspired by clowns, divas and Pierrot, with a bit of Joan Crawford thrown in." Tight. I love that there is that gigantic pile of garbage in the middle of the runway and that their hats are also made out of garbage. The white plastic bag hat is especially genius. Isabella Blow would totally approve.
