Alexander McQueen will always be known as the famed avant-garde designer. His progressive style is nothing less than grandiose. With each collection came a never-ending climatic buzz, drawing fascinated admirers in droves. Although no longer present with us, his empire continues to flourish under the creative direction of his team. Showcased here are six pieces to love from a recent collection.
Embellished wool dress: The elegance of a little black dress with a masterful neckline. Combine with a boyfriend blazer, towering booties, cocktail ring and exotic skin clutch.
Samurai-shoulder crepe pencil dress: Designers Phillipe & David Blond from The Blonds collection created a spiked shoulder dress that was featured in Sex in the City 2 (the movie) via Samantha Jones’ character. The Blonds’ dress is not for the faint of heart and does not suit all women, but Alexander McQueen offers a gentle approach, something to slip into with ease, confidently knowing you can get away with repeating the same look for a future date.
Wool sweater dress: Less is truly more as this body-conscious number hugs your lady curves in all the right places, emphasizing extreme femme fatale. For a dangerously seductive face, mirror-image Gwen Stefani’s makeup; liquid liner, muted shadow, black-noir mascara and MAC lipstick in Russian Red.
High-waisted pleated leather shorts: The look of a skirt and the feel of a short, these pleated shorts are the ultimate in leather allure. There’s no wrong way to dress them; accessorize with silver jewelry, use with plain tees, sheer blouses, lace tops, pointy flats, booties, cardigans and blazers.
Bird skull ring: This bold and unique eye-catcher will be noticed first in an outfit. Liven up a demure assemble or add a punch to something already edgy. Good with all types of leather looks, tees, cotton long sleeve, tunic shirts and dresses, racer-back tanks, black cropped vests, denim and most footwear.
Swarovski crystal skull and butterfly ring: The mother of all skull rings, crafted with acute detail and absolutely amazing. Equal parts of masculinity and femininity makes this metallic beauty very wearable. Dress up or down as you like.
