You want a costume?

THIS is a costume. THIS is art. ItΓÇÖs exquisite. ItΓÇÖs a statement. ItΓÇÖs requires a specific wearer. And you canΓÇÖt wear it anywhere else. You canΓÇÖt even find it anywhere else.

Unlike what we just saw with Michael Kors and Alba and Swank, Florence Welch in McQueen by Sarah Burton is what youΓÇÖll remember. YouΓÇÖll remember it for years.

I feel like thatΓÇÖs a requirement for McQueen. That they are deliberate and specific about who, who gets to represent the brand, especially here, at the Met Gala, where a statement is being made. Like, Jennifer Love Hewitt doesnΓÇÖt get a call back from McQueen, you know? Or Dianna Agron. Or... well, itΓÇÖs a long list.
