McQueen's Little Princess

Happy Thursday everyone I'm here to bring you my #1 collection from Fashion Week...now before I get to that there's been gossip running like wildfire that an old schoolmate from our school was in Paris during fashion week and trying to sneak into the shows...of course he got kicked out but Kanye saw him and gave him an extra ticket(according to his brother) but anyways no one knew what fashion show but i looked it up and he was front row at Lanvin!! everyone at school was just like wtf but anyways i would have killed for that seat and not only that he got to sit next to Mario Testino, Carine Rotfield(the superchic editor who i'd love to meet) and Kanye West and on his facebook he has pictures with all of them and Jessica Alba...forget all the celebrities its lanvin but anyways he was a lucky guy
Now on to Alexander McQueen's once again brilliant collection...he always makes magical inspiring clothes but something about this collection that made me drool. He based it on a princess he believes came from a giant old tree in his backyard...it reminds me of the little princess with its amazing frocks and Indian style headgear and earrings(once as a school project i had to borrow an Indian sari and headgear from a Hindu friend and there absolutely breathtaking with bold colors in gorgeous chiffons and usually gold embroidery all around and a beautiful headgear to match with semiprecious stones). The collection started of with the always favorite and chic black dresses, pants and separates fit for a princess going out for a walk followed by grecian draped dresses with metallic leggings and Indian undertones and lastly it finished with gorgeous frocks fit for any princess even one from a tree made of gorgeous colored plumes with crinolines and a very art inspired dress in cream,blue and bronze with a white bubbled crinoline to poof it up. It was a gorgeous collection that sort of reminded me why I fell in love with fashion...because it is like wearing art that reflects your daydreams and feelings.

I always love McQueen collections because they are so dramatic but it is not a label I would wear personally
