Woman in the iron mask and Cruella de catwalk star in Alexander McQueen's surrealist Paris show

It was a defining moment - or rather, a series of defining moments.

Alexander McQueen's triumphant Paris show served up a selection of his greatest hits, looking back into his own archive and casting a fresh light on past glories.

What glories they were, serving as a timely reminder of just how influential a designer he is.

Iron woman: A bejewelled chainmail mask covered the face and body of a model set the tone for a surrealist Alexander McQueen collection in Paris which was greeted with whistles and cheers by the appreciative audience

So many of McQueen's staple looks - thigh boots, corset dresses, bondage straps, goat hair coats - have seeped into the collections of others, albeit in a watered-down way, that it was wonderful to see their originator reclaim them as his own again.

A tall pyre of crushed car parts, wrecked chairs and tin cans served as a centrepoint to the show, round which the models walked in stacked heels that were the highest seen in Paris so far. That's saying something.

This pic was the best look this guy created. The best. If designers actually wanted to turn men gay, this is the way to do it. :rolleyes:

Clowns? I don't know about that. It totally reminds me of shannon when she has too much to drink and tries to put lipstick on . . . .

Hey, for the most part, we do not have row houses like in Yankee land (Baltimore, MD) plus we don't have to park out on the street. That's what garages are for.:)

LOL!!! When I was in Sarasota you could tell the people from NY & Jersey. They had their garages filled with crap and parked on the street. Not even the driveway, the street. ALL THE TIME...:D

And those "dresses" are pieces of shit, pure and simple.

All of the photos at the link have women with the crazy lipstick. Why on earth would they do that? Seriously unattractive. :cool:

High fashion scares me :p

That's great and all - but I would be driven insane and have to go on a shooting spree after about 3 days of southern drawls. :mad:

Use your imagination here. Pretend this outfit is not metal but a dark colored cloth. What do you see?
