Last night, anyone who is anyone descended upon the V&A for the eagerly awaited opening night gala of Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.
The glittering crowd included Kate Moss and husband Jamie Hince, Naomi Campbell, Poppy Delevingne, Erin O'Conner, Jacquetta Wheeler, and of course, Posh and Becks. WIth a performance from singer FKA Twigs wearing McQueen's famous rainbow birds-of-paradise dress from the designer's SS08 collection, the event was certainly one to behold.
While FKA Twigs worked a spectacular look for her performance, the rest of the glitterati opted for more classic dress. Kate and Jamie were in close competition with Posh and Becks for Best Dressed Couple of the night; admittedly it looks like the former had a much better time than the latter - will Victoria Beckham ever break character and flash us a smile?
Supermodel Naomi Campbell made a solo appearance on the red carpet in McQueen's SS07 feather trim dress, showing off the sheer flower-embossed top and ruffle feathered skirt LIKE A BOSS. And although Poppy D went braless under her McQueen black lace dress, she played it safe and kept her makeup mild as hell. At least pal Erin O'Conner had some strong eyebrows on display! Luckily, Jacquetta Wheeler nailed it in the hair department with her side swept hair 'do, adding some degree of edge to the trio's glamorous photo sesh.
Opening to the public on Saturday, the exhibition features not only the first but BIGGEST retrospective of the late Lee McQueen's work. Boasting a whopping 244 of the label's designs, the V&A's Cabinet of Curiosities room holds 120 garments and accessories alone. Running until August this year, the exhibition has broken records in advance ticket sales - Who's up for checking it out?!
