After watching Alexander McQueen's latest Spring 2010 collection, all I am want to do is bow down and kiss the collective feet of folks who put this collection (and show) together. From the styling, makeup, runway concept, clothing and accessories.... I melt in the creative genius!
My only gripe is the last song played during the final exits. I believe it is a new Lady Gaga single debuted, but all I can think of is "gag gag"-ing from the sound of it. I inserted my own soundtrack below, recently discovered and giving me electric booty shocks each time I press play.
Now onto the visuals!
Style.com's coverage. Check out Daphne Guinness' ghoul eyes!
My favorite looks:
Top to bottom amazing prints, colors and soft-sculpted construction.
This soft volume is dreamy.
My first thought was McQueen's take on Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth
This black/midnight blue offering gets me very excited. I am loving that steel-plated patent shoe goodness.
More dark excitement, but as a razor-sharp 80's, sci-fi onesie.
I thought this look encompassed everything about this show: liquid, ocean, sci-fi, medieval, reptilian, goddess, shape, texture (scales), alien, aftermath, rebirth.

What can one say about this? It is AMAZING! Shells, fins, and coral reef formations. It's hard to articulate.
This is feeling very underwater, organic, cosmic. Reminds me of my friend Mario's (aka MARS-1) work.
Like delicate, flaky, outer layer formations of a giant clamshell.
The sick beading detail on these trousers.
The nails are the best I've ever seen! I want.
Simple, yet clever idea. Dangerous even...
The shoes, the shoes! I'm speechless over these.
