Dramatic Victorian Fashion
The Alexander McQueen Fall 2013 Show is Fit for a Queen

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Mar 6, 13

The Alexander McQueen Fall 2013 runway show may have defied everything that is current and conventional, but it did so in theatrical style. Inspired by Queen Elizabeth’s intensely intricate Victorian wardrobe, with hints of religious references and Ballets Russes thrown into the mix, the looks were nothing short of spectacular. Sarah Burton certainly outdid herself this time. Perhaps she’s practicing for Kate Middleton’s eventual inauguration.

Pure opulence, the Alexander McQueen Fall 2013 show was filled with pearl-studded black suits, white dresses with box-pleated crinolines, gold corsets, ostrich feathers and golden cage masks. Revelling in historical splendor, they are like wearable artworks. A collection in complete defiance of the modern minimalist mind-frame, it encourages women to embrace embellishments as well as their inner queen.
