The beauty of excess

“I was thinking about a woman as an object of desire. We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them. This is a collection about excess – an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme.” — Sarah Burton

Backstage at Alexander McQueen. Had to share. This entire collection is mind-blowing in its extravagance, intricacies and detailing. Sarah Burton has done a marvelous job of keeping the spirit of Alexander alive in her work. She channels his essence with an almost creepily uncanny ease… love, love, love this.
