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?
