God Save the Queen

After seeing the late Alexander McQueen's exhibit, Savage Beauty, at the Metropolitan
Museum of Art, I came to better understand who Alexander McQueen was. While many
of McQueen's pieces may seem strange at first, your eyes are drawn to it, forcing you to
examine the beauties of it. At times the dresses were shocking, and at times even
disturbing, but to me, clothes are not meant to be glanced over. Fashion is supposed to
evoke emotion and that is what McQueen intended. Here are some of my favorite and
most breath-taking pieces of the exhibit.
