I think if dreams were made of this dreams would be insane

I haven't been excited this much since lanvin for h&m. Which unfortunatley the dream was shattered. COMPULSIVE BUYERS WILL NOT RUIN MY DREAMS THIS TIME!
Anywho! I feel like doing a fangirl post about this. AFTER I RANT!
As we all know katie mc princess wore alex at her wedding. This of course makes Alexander McQueen HUGE! However, people don't even care about his legacy. Non fashion people are like: OMG! ALEXANDER MCQUEEN! HE'S LIKE ALIVE AND MAKES WEDDING DRESSES RIGHT!? I am not a big fan of random popularity, it makes mini cults seem less fun. Call me cynical but if everybody started liking the same things as me I would be sort of weirded out.

Now for the funn part: me butchering runway pictures and fan girling them:

This post is everything that matters in the world right now. Anyways, I liked McQueen better before sarah Burton took over... No one will ever be able to replace Lee's genius.
Also your gif is adorable. :)

a wonderful ode to genius! I would too be weirded out if everyone was into fashion, I like it's distinctness in few people. irreplaceabley brilliant, but Sarah Burton has done a phenomenal job. your gif is so you! great song, passion pits the best.

I was truly shocked when Kate Middleton chose Sarah Burton to do her dress (common misconception: Sarah Burton did it, not as an extension of Alexander McQueen but as her own... design... what I mean is it's not by the label), I mean, Alexander McQueen is pretty edgy and she's, well, not. I loooooved the dress but it wasn't Alexander McQueen at all, just, pretty. And yeah. I hate all the new... nonsense.

Agh I hate it when people think they're cool when they throw around names like Alexander McQueen and stuff. For example, a couple months ago, before she went mainstream, I said to someone "do you like Florence + the Machine?" and this person was like, "Yeah I love them." Them!! THEM!! Florence is one person!!
Sorry I'm having a spasm over nothing... that just bothered me...
But reading the comments above, to join the discussion, I actually really liked the Sarah Burton dress. I mean, the original McQueen dress was cool, but this was a wedding, not the runway. She didn't NEED to make a statement. You don't need to make a fashion statement with everything you do. The Burton dress was beautiful, period. So was the McQueen dress, but the wedding wasn't about the dress and it wasn't about McQueen.
My opinion probably isn't as valid as the opinions above though being somebody who isn't that fashionable... oh well.

I do like Alexander McQueen, but the designer not the brand. When you look at the designs in your post and then at the wedding dress Sarah Burton designed, there is a big difference. I thought the wedding dress was beautiful, but very traditional and (dare I say it?) a bit boring. Maybe this is because my two favorite wedding dresses: the one my mom wore (vintage with gold flower-like things) and the one my friend's mom wore (black with white embroidery) are unusual as far as wedding dresses go. I plan on getting married in a field of daisies wearing something I've sewn myself and no shoes so my idea of the perfect wedding is a bit off. Also, I'm currently trying to convince my parents that NYC would be the perfect place to go over the summer. Thanks for the comment on my blog! xx Genevieve

Know what you mean 'bout the no friends into fashion.
I said something about Dior once and got "Oh Coco Chanel runs that right?" In response XD

I didn't even know what a gif WAS until just now - thank you for enlightening my dinosaur age mind - I want to try them out now :P.

The thing that was great about McQueen was that he broke boundaries and had real creative vision. It'll be interesting to see where Sarah Burton takes the label.

Thank you as always for your comments btw - you rawk

On the orange hair; it just feels a little too crazy cheeto ginger to me, pastels or just pretty colors are where it's at, but for neon colors I'd do green... I don't know what I'm trying to say here so just email us.
