Alexander McQueen: Savage BeautyPosted: May 23, 2011
I remember I had just gotten my first iPhone, and one of the first apps I downloaded was STYLE.COM. It allowed me to see all runway shows on the go, and one of my favorites was the Alexander McQueen Fall 2006 ready-to-wear show. I admired the Kate Moss hologram over and over again. I think McQueen was a great artist, and so I could not wait to see the exhibit Savage Beauty in The Metropolitan Museum.
The British curator of The Costume Institute, Andrew Bolton, did an amazing job putting the show together. The combination of McQueen’s work and the use of light and music made for an experience, rather than just looking at different pieces in a gallery.
This is a must see for anyone who lives close enough. I would recommend to come early in the morning on a weekday, as the wait can be pretty long. Members receive priority access. If you won’t be able to go, below are some pictures. Also, this site shows a video in which the curator takes you through the show.
