The Alexander McQueen feather wedding dress would certainly not be my top choices of gowns if I were to get hitched soon, and not just because the ostrich feathers make it unethical.

In case you hadn’t heard, the Alexander McQueen feather wedding dress is under the spotlight this week after Project Runway contestant Kenley was accused to ripping off Alexander McQueen’s work. Michael Kors disagreed, saying he loved the gown despite its uncanny resemblance, but Project Runway viewers and Alexander McQueen fans are calling foul.

The gallery shows the new Spring and Summer 2009 Alexander McQueen feather wedding dress contrasted with that of the Project Runway season 5 episode 13 gown. The side-by-side is in the second image.

Speaking of Alexander McQueen, did you hear they laced the girls up so tightly at Paris Fashion Week that one of them fainted due to an overly cinched corsette? Surprisingly, she made it off the runway in time; after doing her turns, 19-year-old Australian Abbey Lee Kershaw passed out backstage.

The Wall Street Journal even said Alexander McQueen’s clothes "were so body-hugging that models’ bones protruded through the clothes awkwardly, causing some discussion in the audience."
