I rather liked the McQueen collection. They were amped up pieces that parodied 20th century fashion landmarks from Dior, Chanel and his own archives. Take away all the theatrical jazz, they are actually very wearable and gorgeous! Not to mention the wealth of satirical meaning behind the collection. Check out the rest here.

I just have one problem: the make-up. All the models were wearing the identical, weird pasty face, sausage red lip look. He’s probably trying to focus attention on the fashion instead of the model by making them all a white canvas, but is that scary make-up necessary? How can the lovely Lily Donaldson (left) look like THAT? He might as well have hired a bunch of identical robots to for his runway.
