April and May belongs to British Designer Alexander McQueen, fitting since the designer’s point of view was creative, practical, energetic, beautiful and bullish. Days after his label designed not one but two (!) wedding dresses for Kate Middleton, the deceased designer was the focus of this year’s Costume Ball at the Met, celebrating the opening of Savage Beauty, a retrospective of the late designer’s legacy.

There was a whole constellation of stars in McQueen, but the unexpected is always thrilling.
