Alexander McQueen's Exhibition

The “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art ends August 7 and you do not want to miss this. While the show has received lots of press, nothing will prepare you for seeing the exhibition live. The designs, displays, sets and staging are awe-inspiring. The accessories on display were used in his runway shows and in many cases there are video loops showing models wearing them on the catwalk.
* A metal spine corset (complete with tail), that models wore over their dresses
* A coiled corset inspired by African neckpieces and created by jeweler Shaune Leane.
* Carved wooden prosthetic boots
* A headpiece made from pheasant feathers painted to resemble a tangle of red butterflies
* Angel wings carved out of balsa wood
* The famed armadillo shoe from his final collection and other alien-like footwear.
The show is always crowded, so get there early!
