On the night of the Met Gala, a longed talked about performance piece took place.
Daphne Guinness got dressed for the Gala in a Barney’s Window. Kinda sounds bizarre, weird and a bit wtf. Why would you do that? And how would you do that without the whole world seeing thing you don’t really want them to see?
Well it was quite cool I must say. The whole theatricality of Ms. Guinness’ behavour, the lighting, the clean set up was quite a show. And of course the dress itself, was a masterpiece.
So yep, weird things happen, but exactly they make life interesting and fashion unpredictable.
This is the whole 7 minutes long performance piece. Enjoy!
After last week’s wedding there is one name that is circulating around the world. Alexander McQueen. Now it is time to look back at his legacy and the magnificent way in which he interpreted fashion and was able to create magic.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has dedicated an exhibit to that magic. A collection of the best of the best McQueen. Here are some images that are breath stopping, because they show the different techniques, styles, textures that carry a single spirit- the spirit of Lee McQueen.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is honoring one of the greatest minds of 20th century fashion the late Alexander McQueen. They will present a collection of his work in an exhibit named “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty,” which will run from May 4 through July 31, 2011. It will definitely be a worthwhile trip to go to the Big Apple and see the amazingness on display!
It is still sad that the genius behind the incredible creations below is gone. All we can do is remember and cherish his talent.
