savage beauty.

"i'm a romantic skitzophrenic." - Alexander McQueen

as i mentioned on tuesday, i saw the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at the MET. SO cool, interesting and beautiful. i highly recommend to my fellow NYC-ers (hurry, it ends august 7th). even though photos are prohibited, i managed to sneak a few (shh) ...

(all quotes below by McQueen via the MET exhibit)

"i like things to be modern and sitll have a bit of tradition."

"i find beauty in the grotesque, like most artists. i have to force people to look at things."

"it's the ugly things i notice more, because other people tend to ignore the ugly things."

"women should look like women. a piece of cardboard has no sexuality."

and my friend and co-worker, kelly, was able to get some great shots with her hipstamatic iphone app (thanks, kel!) ...

and some faves from the exhibit that i wasn't able to get photos of (love the antlers) ...

the above shoes are SO, unbelievably pretty (the photo doesn't do it justice).

if nothing else, watch this video -

his work is so unique, daring, intricate, tough yet delicate. he was an amazing talent.

p.s. sorry for the overload of adjectives! he was just that good.

happy thursday!
