Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty
I cannot get over this book! Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty was by many measures the number one visual culture book of 2011, and it's no mystery why. Not only are these clothes some of the most beautiful you're ever going to see, but the book itself is so exquisitely designed and produced that is nearly makes my head fall off. Probably my only major regret for last year is not making it to New York at a time when I could see this show at the Met. But now, thanks to a kind birthday gift, I can enjoy the swagger, excitement, and style of Mr. McQueen's astonishing brain and eyeballs and hands whenever I like.
