Alexander McQueen at the Met

Last week I went to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY, and it's beyond amazing . I wanted to take pics of the show itself, but since that's not allowed (plus it's hard since it's SO crowded) I took some shots of the catalog I got.

The cover is a hologram that oscillates between McQueen and a metal skull (above). See some of the designs displayed at the Met below:
















Below watch some of Alexander McQueen's shows featured at the exhibit.

The one with the machines spraying paint at Shalom Harlow (S/S 1999):



The one with models in the biggest, most fashionable chess game ever (S/S 2005):


The one opening with Kate Moss in a hologram (F/W 2006):


Totally worth a trip to NY! Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty goes through August 7th at The Met.
