These silver shoes are so Ziggy Stardust! It makes sense to pair them with a jumpsuit and a seventies style hat to complete the look.

I like the way different sizes of the same print were used. I also really like the shape of it.
This is from his final collection. I love the way it flares out at the hips. The heavily embroidered center is my favorite part of this dress.
This collection was dark. The presentation was like a hospital. I love the contrast between the microscope slides and the feathers. The slides were dyed red to suggest blood. I love the back of this dress. The racer back and feathers work so well together. It has a high neck which is one of McQueen's signatures. He says,"There’s blood beneath every layer of skin."
This collection was the story of a shipwreck. I love this dress. It has layers of organza. They are arranged perfectly. I love how the dress looks disheveled and like it is falling off of the body. The dress is called the oyster dress and the bottom of the dress looks like a oyster shell.
Fall 2008 was such a magical collection. The story behind it was wonderful; a girl who emerges from a tree to meet a prince and become queen. This dress is wonderful because it's covered in sultry red feathers. I adore feathers. The back is spectacular too. It turns into a frothy confection.
I remember seeing this dress in a Harper's Bazaar editorial and I thought it was the most beautiful dress I had ever seen. I love the real flowers and the Victorianness of the high collar. This is such an amazing piece. I was always into fashion but this was the dress that made me realize clothes could be art too. This was the dress that made me fall in love with Alexander McQueen.

I say that we should bring the peplum back. Here are some vintage examples:This dress is from the eighties but in a fifties shape. I love the abstract print on it.$47This dress is from the sixties. It has a boned bodice. And a special treat of a big bow!$20
Modern peplum dresses are a bit more dramatic!I love how big this peplum. The color is amazing too. You would stop traffic in this dress. It has a really cool open back too.$212.35 I love Alice and Olivia. I love this dress. The colors are great. The pencil skirt of the dress really allows the peplum to stand out. I also like how the peplum is sort of a wrap.$400
