Editorial Essentials: Karen’s Elson’s Stunning Alexander McQueen Headpiece

I am completely mesmerized by 1) this Philip Treacy for Alexander McQueen Monarch butterfly headpiece and 2) Karen Elson in this Philip Treacy for Alexander McQueen headpiece.

Elson is the solo girl in an editorial entitled “The Enchanted Garden,” shot by Bruce Weber for the March 2011 issue of American Vogue.

It’s a statement-making accessory if ever there was one, but I’m finding it so romantic. Unwearable, maybe, but also beautiful. What do you think?

      I would wear that in a heartbeat.

      I think it’s wearable. I’d love to wear it!

      This look is so good, and the pair of baby goats offsets the butterflies perfectly. In fact, the goats/headpiece combo was starting to make me think this is the best styling ever, but her shoes are kind of lame.
