I don’t like a feathered skirt. It’s so very 2005. But most of the time, when we see the feathered skirt, it’s pink or white. The black feathered skirt is unmistakably McQueen though. Last year I went to the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. His black feathers, up close, were exquisite. And the way they’re presented here, underneath stitched florals on Cate Blanchett, is pretty spectacular.
