Savage Beauty

The Metropolitian Museum's Costume Institute Gala this year paid tribute to the late, great Alexander McQueen. The exhibit featuring some of his most fantastical creations is appropriately titled, Savage Beauty. The waiters all wore tartan sashes as a tribute to McQueen's Scottish heritage. I so wish I could go to New York and see this! The only ladies I am showing you below, are the ones wearing McQueen. I feel that wearing anything else is somewhat disrespectful, given the fact that the gala is supposed to be celebration of him. It's surprising how many chose not to wear the designer! Shocking, really. Who wouldn't want to wear Alexander McQueen?

Salma Hayek, who served as a chair for the Gala. Clutch also by Alexander McQueen.

Gisele, who always looks stunning at the Met Gala. Some models seem to never learn a thing about style, but this bitch knows.

Daphne Guiness. This piece really was only meant for the runway, so obviously she would choose to wear it.

Sarah Jessical Parker. I love the nude colour!

Naomi Campbell in another look that on any other night should stay on the runway. I must commend her and Ms. Guiness for not playing it safe on an evening dedicated to the man who never played it safe. Daphne Guiness kinda dresses like this all the time, though.

Sarah Burton, the current designer at Aleander McQueen, who has been infusing the line with her own touch, while letting the true colours of Lee Alexander McQueen still shine through.

He will forever live on in the hearts of fashionistas everywhere.
