Regardless of the categorization, this heavy, jewel-encrusted collection is fit for royalty – and it fits with royal fashion edicts from either a millenia ago or the present day. There is not one Queen in history who would snub this McQueen collection. Tiny seed pearls lined the garments, as diamond studded cages covered the faces of the models. Huge marabou feather tops were decorated with coruscated mesh skirts and tight cream-colored bodices. Layers of lace, mesh, peplum and chain-link metals added body to the already voluminous silhouette. In the case of this season’s McQueen offerings, briefer is better. Anything more than these 10 looks would have been extravagant.
