McQueen’s suicide still really, really bums me out, so before I wuss all over you and get tearily reminded of fashion’s devastating loss, let me just say this dress is beautiful. Like just about all great McQueen, it’s a combination of edge (the severe shoulders) and utterly feminine elegance (the lace, the retro shape, the alluring sheer lace on the arms).  Gorgeous alone and gorgeous on just about anybody.
