Sarah Burton On Alexander McQueen

The “Savage Beauty” retrospective of Alexander McQueen is almost here and to coincide with the exhibit’s opening, Vogue got Steven Meisel to shoot a bunch of top models in a bunch of the label’s most astonishing creations.

Paris Fashion Week: Our 15 Favorite Looks

The mood in Paris was somber. The runways saw countless covered figures (loads of sleeved dresses, capes and capelets topped dozens of wideleg trousers), though these are Fall collections, after all.

Random Photo: Basketweaving Hair

Sarah Burton’s debut show at Alexander McQueen is getting rave reviews. While I’m totally digging the clothes, I don’t know if I love the accompanying hair looks – specifically, this ‘basketweaving’ hair. It looks kind of cool, but this would never work in real life.
