Hats off to Alexander McQueen! No, really…take those hats off

picture 21 312x400 Hats off to Alexander McQueen! No, really...take those hats off

Couture doesn’t get much sexier than this. Come-hither, Edward Scissorhands-esque lips that seductively whisper, “I applied my lipstick in the car on my way to work this morning;” A deathly, pallid complexion that just screams “I am not a peasant who toils outdoors– I am part of the bourgeoisie, and I remain within the confines of my manor, for I do not need to work for money;”  lashless, red-rimmed eyes, complete with undereye circles; and headdresses crafted from the finest couture garbage bags around. This is beauty at its finest.

This is Alexander McQueen‘s Autumn/Winter ’09-’10 collection, as shown at Paris Fashion Week. Reminiscent of a recent post on Yohji Yamamoto, this recycled materials form of headwear just screams, “I am homeless. And I am sexy.” The pieces themselves are quite surreal. Very avant-garde while still maintaining an element of geometric elegance. Many remind me of the Queen of Hearts scene in Alice in Wonderland. I am especially fond of the wooly, orange and black wrap dress. But the makeup, what can I say? Who can focus on the clothes when such stunning beauties are strutting their stuff on the catwalk? Who needs the clothes of Alexander McQueen when you’re already a looker? I mean, they can wear plastic bags on their heads and still look gorgeous. Oh, wait…they are. What? Did someone say suffocation hazard? DON’T BE SILLY, FOOLS! We must all make sacrifices in the name of fashion, so stop being such a baby.

Stay tuned for McQueen’s Spring/Summer ’10 collection, “Running With Scissors,” in which the models holding scissors will glide on rollerskates along a catwalk made of broken glass.

    Hello. I just wanted to pop in and comment on the design of your blog. Don’t take this the wrong way, but it’s too loud. It’s doing way too much and it takes away from what youve got to say – which I think is really important.
