All Hail McQueen

Fashion’s biggest party, the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala, just happened and they chose to honor the amazing late Alexander McQueen for this year’s theme.  The Met is exhibiting McQueen’s contribution to fashion in a retrospective called Savage Beauty.  McQueen was one of my favorites and his genius is sorely missed.  Im glad he was honored with such an esteemed evening.  Here are some of my favorite looks from the night.
