An Angry Homage...

Was it too much to ask for a dramatic, stunning, stops your heart look for the Metropolitan Gala?? McQueen does it well enough with just the clothes. Pick a stunner and accessorise and make yourself up to complement it. Is that too hard, all ye celebrities?? I'm putting together this outfit not as a gentle suggestion. Its an angry homage to McQueen, who deserved a lot more than the feeble attempt to honor him at the Met Gala.


I picked this amazing work of art for the gown fromt he Fall 2010 collection. The blood red gown is embellished heavily with gilded embroidery with a matching cape which you should not even consider removing..I added these Indian juttis which were a feature in the Fall 2008 collection. The shoes feature the similar gilded embroidery that the dress has.These are handworked by Indian artisans. It may lack the label, but its till high on fashion. A dress fit for a Queen who is bold enough to carry it and bolder enought to accessorise it with this heavy kundan jewellery. The beautiful set has a necklace and earrings with precious white kundan stones and deep red drop. The Kundan jewellery is not for the neck, its for the hair. Drape the necklace over your hair. Something like this...

This look is from the beautiful Fall 2008 collection from McQueen.. An Indian inspired collection. I'm simply fusing two aesthetics. A 2010 gown with a cape with a 2008 inspired headpiece. Add the earrings and do not fear the OTT. This is the Met gala. Severely pulled back hair and barely there makeup ought to finish a look and a living homage to the incredibly talented Alexander McQueen. What do you think?
