alexander mcqueen's savage beauty at the met was the most beautiful show i've seen in a long time. mcqueen is really the only person in fashion that has ever had such an influence on me. he draws upon historical reference and romantic imagery to create a dark fantasy world that is rich and otherworldly. everything so well tailored and incredibly detailed and feminine. a little bit twisted and a little bit rock and roll and always sexy. everything a woman wants to be.
