Alexander Mcqueen's Spring/Summer 2013 Pieces Are Majestic

Alexander McQueen's Spring/Summer 2013 collection took the breath away from couture gawkers at the 2012 Paris Fashion Week. The extravagant line of dresses worked with a formal, Marie Antoinette-inspired motif.

Tiers lined with fringed fabric were the focal point of the billowing gowns. While many of the pieces were see-through, revealing the undergarments of the models, they still maintained a sense of Victorian modesty.

This conservative charm was reinforced by the host of chic ladylike hats. The almost cage-like head pieces covered the majority of the women's heads, revealing only their lips and chins. And yet, despite the demure themes, the production was still somehow seductive, lines that could only be crossed by Alexander McQueen.
