December’s most exquisite cover – Michelle Williams wearing Alexander McQueen for Elle UK.

Michelle Williams, captured by Alexei Hay, looks positively angelic wearing this extraordinary McQueen gown. The divine embellished gown from the Fall 2011 collection is truly breathtaking.

The Spring / Summer 2012 Collection

With extraordinarily breathtaking detail, the Alexander McQueen Spring / Summer 2012 collection is a heaven sent, fashion fantasy. Sarah Burton, McQueen’s creative director, said of the collection: “This is a collection about excess. It’s an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme. We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them.”

In a colour palette of shimmering black, gold, silver, white, peach and red; the collection was filled with divine ruffles, lace and delicately beautiful allure. Raised waist silhouettes created exaggerated lines of movement Burton described as how “a jellyfish moves in the sea”. Shoulders were emphasised and curves accentuated with bustles.

With an avant garde edge, the ready-to-wear collection was practically couture with its extreme attention to detail. Every piece was hand sewn with half made in the UK, half made in France – some by Burton herself.

J’aime Michelle Williams & McQueen!
