In McQueen

Alexander Mc.Queen! Listening to the name brings up images of the pieces of nature (Shells, Medical slides,Ostrich hair and marble) put together to create apparel. His legacy, now being taken forward by Sarah Burton lies in creating structured pieces of pure art for the "eye turning," woman.

The past few weeks have envisioned Anne Hathaway in two of Burton's pieces from Resort 2012.
Alexander Mc.Queen- Resort 2012

Anne Hathaway in Alexander Mc.Queen
Anne looked beautiful in the beaded strapless dress from Resort 2012. With nude pointed toe shoes and minimal make up she looked flawless. While a stiff bun might have made her look too stiff, a messy bun would have attracted eyes to her tiny waist and beautiful shoulders.

Anne Hathaway in Alexander Mc.Queen
 Classic! Anne knows what works for her and sticks to it. The look is very Audrey Hepburn in 2012. The boat neck, red lips, side swept hair and the ankle length is perhaps a tad bit too much. A knee length dress would probably have done justice to the dress.
Bibhu Mohapatra- Resort 2012
 This is a Bibhu Mohapatra gown from Resort 2012. It completely reminded me of the Mc.Queen dress from above. Hmm, "imitation is the most sincere form of flattery!" ;)

Later!!! P
