Butterfly McQueen

This little bit of beautiful fashion genius is from last fall’s runway, by Alexander McQueen. I remember seeing it a few months back and not knowing who did it—and it’s a visual that has been lodged in my head this whole time. So when I happened upon it again, I had to know more about it. It’s actually McQueen’s tribute to Isabella Blow, (below), a British fashion editor and eccentric style icon, given to wearing insane (seriously certifiable, in fact) creations by milliner Philip Treacy. She passed away last spring and is credited with discovering Alexander McQueen.
