Sarah Burton Page 1
Designer Sarah Burton is expecting twins in February, and as such, has decided to cancel the Alexander McQueen fall 2013 women’s ready-to-wear fashion show during Paris Fashion Week.
In the ten days since Kate Middleton confirmed her pregnancy, the fashion media has pretty much been in a state of non-stop hyperventilation at the thought of her maternity wardrobe. When will she start showing? Will she have to ditch the L.K. Bennett pumps? Will Alexander McQueen make her custom maternity clothes? Well, it looks like we have the answer to at least one of those questions.
Prince Charles may be footing the bill for Kate Middleton‘s wardrobe, but no one can say that she isn’t earning her keep.
Congratulations, Sarah! Clearly Liz liked the royal wedding dress just as much as we did.
Yes, it is Queen Elizabeth II‘s Diamond Jubilee weekend. Yes, she is the most stylish of them all (read Simon Doonan‘s essay on the subject if you don’t believe us.) But truthfully, the combination of Kate Middleton and Sarah Burton will forever have our hearts.
Congratulations are in order for Issey Miyake and his design team as they nabbed the Fashion Award at the Design Awards Tuesday night in London.
Last year, Tom Ford was the lone representative of the fashion community to make it on Time’s 100 list. This year, that number has increased exponentially (an exact number really depends on who does or doesn’t “count” as fashion) with the inclusion of Spanx founder Sara Blakley, Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton, Kate and Pippa Middleton, and Rihanna.
Kate Middleton’s Sarah Burton-designed royal wedding dress may well be the best kept secret in fashion history, but one thing we’ve always wondered is how the lacemakers and seamstresses at the Royal School of Needlework didn’t figure out what it was they were working on. Turns out Burton had a master plan in place to keep everyone — including Anna Wintour – totally out of the loop.
Sarah Jessica Parker chatted with Sarah Burton for the April issue of Interview, and we learned quite a few things about the Alexander McQueen designer.
Yesterday McQ, Alexander McQueen‘s lower priced line, held its very first runway show — and what a show it was.
Sarah Burton‘s clothes are heartbreakingly beautiful. The designer has done Alexander McQueen‘s legacy justice, and we’re constantly in awe of her skill. Need an example of just how awesome she is? Let’s discuss how she made a dress out of plates. PLATES!
The British Fashion Council held its British Fashion Awards this evening, and all of our favorite British people walked away winners. Isn’t it nice when that happens?
This was the week celebrities (and normal people) wore lots of Halloween costumes! This was also the week we talked to a few of our girlcrushes (Blake Lively! Alexa Chung! Mindy Kaling!), lamented offensive merchandise, and saw what Courtney Stodden looks like without makeup. Oh, yeah, and Kim Kardashian filed for divorce.
We’ve been wondering for quite some time (or, you know, since April) just exactly how Sarah Burton kept her royal wedding dress duties a secret. We would want to tell everybody! Alas, the Alexander McQueen creative director has a bit more restraint than we do.
This is the week Fashion Month ended! Karl Lagerfeld took us under the sea and said crazy things, Anderson Cooper was mad about the Olsens‘ $34,000 backpack, and Anna Wintour brushed off Kanye. Also, WILLOW SMITH IS BACK.
Sarah Burton showed her third solo collection for Alexander McQueen in Paris this afternoon, and like the two that came before, it was beautiful. Intricately tiered gowns were topped with lacey masks that were as haunting as they were beautiful. The floor-length dresses were undoubtedly the show stoppers, but the detailed corsets and proportionate ruffling of the suits shouldn’t be overlooked.
The royal wedding dress exhibit at Buckingham Palace is proving to be just as popular as expected. Over 354,000 people have visited since the dress went on display July 23rd! We guess most people don’t share the Queen’s belief that the whole thing is horrid and creepy?
When we first saw an image from the Alexander McQueen fall 2011 ad campaign, we were sure it was actually some sort of last-ditch (and totally unnecessary) promotion for Savage Beauty‘s final week at the Met. Can you blame us?
Just when you thought we were going to go a whole week without any Kate Middleton coverage, Buckingham Palace has opened its gates to an exhibit of Kate Middleton’s now iconic royal wedding dress designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. And while it’s not like photos of the dress have been scarce, in this case, the beauty of the exhibit is in the details.
