Not to worry, the house of Alexander McQueen is safe. Though the fashion world will continue to mourn the pionerring designer’s death for years to come, his torch is invariably carried through the designs of Sarah Burton – I don’t know any other designer that could have stepped in and kept Lee Alexander’s heritage in tact. For Fall/Winter 2011, she went as far as to cover a gown’s bodice with broken china, introduce sublime black harnesses and pull other entrancingly vindictive designs from McQueen DNA. With such a bevy of breathtaking garments, any truth in the rumours concerning Burton as Kate Middleton‘s royal wedding dress designer call for fashion hysteria.

Miuccia Prada just presented forty-one looks of vicissitude on three runways: that is what you call a fashion show. The pleasantly neurotic show began late (it’s Prada, who cares?), starting with a fur-collared dress and travelling through looks of school girl dresses, fur-spiked swimming caps, plastic paillettes, python print, and a bevy of refined reds. This is a collection to celebrate; a prediction I’m sure you will agree with via many future editorials. See the top five looks below! View Post
In the halls of the British Museum, Alice Temperley took my reservations of Temperley London and turned them to dimensional fandom. While her designs have always been excellent, the one-note themes have kept them contained. Thanks to a bevy of detailed cocktail dresses and red-carpet rulers, these are destined to be award show commodities. There was simply nothing left to be desired. See the top five looks below!

10 pesos if you can guess who Leighton Meester is wearing here? The folks at Vogue Italia got a sneak peak into the new Missoni Spring/Summer 2011 campaign – and now you can, too! The all-important image in the series inspired by the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is of Miss Meester, though the campaign also features a bevy of creative society types ie. Eugenie Niarchos, Lissy von Thurn und Taxis, Tatiana Santo Domingo and Jaquetta Wheeler. Check out the accompanying video below, also shot by Juergen Teller.
