Savage Beauty Page 1
The Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met was seriously, seriously amazing. We gushed and gushed and gushed about Savage Beauty, and were sad to learn that it wouldn’t be shown anywhere else. But it looks like the demand was just too high for the McQueen folks to ignore. Rumor has it the exhibit will be shown across the pond in the very near future.
Today’s StyleDish brings an entire compendium of models eating ice cream (in case you didn’t have enough last week), an investigation into Forever 21′s fascination with religion, and Kellan Lutz’s initial pendant — yup, that kind you can spot on pre-teen girls everywhere. Sigh.
That’s it, folks. The show’s over. And by show, we mean the totally incredible Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. But oh, did it have a successful run!
Tonight the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit will close forever. Yes, forever. But the Met is staying open until midnight to accomodate the crowds, and we would like to know just what lengths you’re going to for the once-in-a-lifetime show.
We could breathlessly describe how unreal amazing the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met is, but hey, we already did that! Savage Beauty closes on Sunday, and it is an absolute must-see. Need more convincing? We’ll help.
The Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met has gotten such a stellar reception that its run being extended a full week — and for a special price, the museum will even let you see it when no one else is there.
The Costume Institute‘s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is insanely beautiful, intensely dramatic, and — most importantly — profoundly moving. Spanning from McQueen‘s Central Saint Martins graduation collection to his posthumous autumn/winter 2010-11 show, the exhibit celebrates an extraordinary and prolific career cut tragically short.
This year’s Met Gala celebrated the genius of Alexander McQueen. The Costume Institute‘s Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit opens tomorrow, and breathtaking doesn’t even begin to describe it. But more on that later! The Met Gala is arguably the most fashionable event of the year, so it’s no surprise than many of the A-list guests dressed in keeping with the fashionable McQueen theme.
At 6 a.m. eastern standard time this morning, Kate Middleton emerged from her car outside of Westminster Abbey in a custom white silk dress with lace sleeves and a handmade, eight-foot long train, and the international fashion industry breathed a collective sigh of relief. The dress was by designer Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen, a long rumored frontrunner and certainly a favorite for the role — but how much of Kate’s choice was actually left to chance?
As part of the lead up to “Savage Beauty,” the Alexander McQueen exhibit opening at the Metropolitan Museum next month and feted by the Costume Institute Gala on May 4, Sarah Burton spoke to Vogue’s Sarah Mower about the vision behind McQueen’s most iconic collections.
We saw some images from the Met‘s upcoming Alexander McQueen Costume Institute exhibit back in February, and now we have even more to show you. The Cut got their hands on a copy of the catalog for Savage Beauty, and, yes, it’s stunning.
