Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

A week ago, on August 7th, I was lucky enough to stand through the 5-hour line to see the most cosmic exhibition in the Metropolitan museum.

Just for the record, we were not allowed to take pictures. I did the best I could! 

Six galleries were featured there. The first one - Romantic Mind - was probably the least crazy and most normal one. It contained lots of classical black jackets and low-rise pants (from the Highland Rape collection). My favorite piece of this gallery is the high shouldered jacket with a painting printed on it:

And the art-print dress too:

The second gallery was the "Romantic Gothic and Cabinet of Curiosities". The atmosphere there (just as in the first gallery) was extremly heavy. Slow and depressing music that makes you think of death (witch McQueen found increadibly beautiful).

The "Romantic Nationalism" gallery had pieces that McQueen made while inspired by England, mostly it's anarchy.

The long golden coat over the white wedding-like dress is one of my favorite looks.

An other thing that makes me sure McQueen was a genious is his ability to create totally different pieces. From dark, Tim Burton inspired to fresh and full of life works, like this amazing flower dress.

One of the other galleries - "Romantic Primitivism" - had both s&m-looking and nude-colored, soft dresses.

"I find beauty in the grotesque. Like most artists, I have to force people to look at things".

Obviously, all the accessories are unbeliveble. Every single headdress and every shoe is a beautiful unique piece of art.

"Romantic Naturalism" was the most space-like gallery. Cosmic looks with the famous Armadillo shoes.

Mind-blowing and breath-taking, no pictures or words can show the emotions you get from standing there in front of those masterpieces. Simply amazing.
