Fashion Quiz: Designer Purse Or Stingray Egg Case?

One of these items is a $1,000 Alexander McQueen clutch. The other is the egg casing of a thornback stingray. Can you tell which is which? [Zappos; The Shark Lab] Keep reading »

Runway To Retail: McQueen’s Brass Knuckle Clutch For Cheap

The Alexander McQueen Brass Knuckle Clutch is by far one of the coolest and most unique bags ever. Surprisingly, it is not one that you can find at a lower price by tons of other retailers. However, Too Fast has made a larger striped version that could totally work for someone who likes the style but not the $2,000+ price tag. Shiny vinyl with large “brass knuckles” as the handle, this bag is edgy and fun, and just like the original, it’s definitely a statement. [1: $1,924 Zappos; 2: $39.99 Too Fast] Keep reading »

Bjork Sings “Gloomy Sunday” At Alexander McQueen Memorial

At the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen‘s memorial service on Monday, Bjork sang a moving rendition of Billie Holiday’s “Gloomy Sunday” for the glamorous gathered to mourn at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. For her performance, she wore a pair of “angel wings” created by McQueen, who took his life earlier this year on the day before his mother’s funeral. You can see a close-up of the singer’s wings here. Keep reading »

Alexander McQueen Boots Fit For An Angel

We’ll have to stick these Alexander McQueen ankle boots in our A Girl Can Dream file for now. Outfitted with gold angel wings embroidered on the sides, equipped with a staggering 5-inch heel, and finished off with heavy metal skull-zipper pulls, these are the perfect peep-toe boots for the women whose personal statement is “I am woman, watch me fly.” Perhaps we’ll find $1,285 in spare change in the sofa? Perhaps not. [Net-A-Porter] Keep reading »

Yay Or Nay: Alexander McQueen Introduces New Line Of Men’s Underwear

The folks at Alexander McQueen are continuing the deceased designer’s legacy. One of the first new things to come out of the fashion house? A line of men’s underwear emblazoned with the signature McQueen skull print. (Apparently this collection will also have silk loungewear—classy.) But we wonder … what would Alexander McQueen have wanted as a fashion statement following his death? Is it kind of cheeky to put skulls and bones on boxers? (Bones, you know?) Then again, he might love the little joke.

What do you think of this look? Would you like your man to wear some skivvies like this? [Hint Mag] Keep reading »

New Alexander McQueen Ring Perfect For The Girl Feeling Bullish

New on the Alexander McQueen website, as part of the pre-fall/winter 2010 collection, this over-the-top-bold ring featuring a silver-tone brass Celtic warrior’s skull outfitted with a mohawked helmet, a pair of onyx horns, and twin Swarovski crystal eyes. If you’ve got a spare $280 lying around, this finger warrior can be your own. Also available in gold with white horns. [Alexander McQueen] Keep reading »

Enough With The Alexander McQueen Tribute Products

That fashion designer Alexander McQueen committed suicide earlier this year was tragic enough. That a group of vultures are using his death to line their pockets with cash is plain sickening. It’s one thing when a trendsetting and chic magazine like Visionaire pays homage to the designer by devoting an entire issue to his iconic frocks. It’s quite another when a nail polish manufacturer uses the McQueen name to hawk a set of hideous, muddy-looking shades. That’s what Butter London has done with a line of new polishes it claims were inspired by McQueen: All Hail McQueen, a hideous taupe, Bumster, which looks like something you’d find in a diaper, Marrow, marrow, really?, and Victoriana, a bluish-green that’s neither here not there. All one has to do is take a cursory look at these polishes to see they have nothing to do with McQueen’s genius. What this company has done is attached some over-written copy and a sick idea to a product-like-any-other in order to sell their load of crap. It’s bad enough that McQueen is gone, but to associate his brilliance with this drivel is to degrade the fashion legacy he created. [Hot Beauty Health] Keep reading »

Only Plastic Surgery Will Give You Designer Shoulders

We here at The Frisky try to take a “free to be you and me” attitude when it comes to body image, but today we are here to tell you that if you are a fashionista who aspires to have designer shoulders — sharp, tailored, chic (think: McQueen, Balmain, Lanvin) — you are going to have to get shoulder plastic surgery if you really want to be on trend. After all, who wants to have unstylish shoulders? We don’t. Our as-yet unaltered shoulders cringe at the mere thought of how pre-surgically off-trend they are. Thankfully, there’s a name for our disorder: shoulder dysmorphia. The diagnosis comes from DIS magazine, which predicts, “consumer anxieties over natural shoulder inadequacy will skyrocket, forcing women to undergo startling new surgical procedures, season to season, in order to keep up with the newest designer shapes.” We cannot wait to get our shoulders sharpened to shiny, skin-covered points that will make walking down a crowded street a dangerous event — for those who pass too close to us. To find out what type of shoulders you should tell your plastic surgeon to give you, check out the options after the jump. Keep reading »

Alexander McQueen Without Alexander McQueen Just Isn’t The Same

Since Alexander McQueen killed himself this past February, Sarah Burton, who served as the designer’s right-hand woman for 14 years, has been installed as the fashion house’s creative director. Now we’ve got a first look at what direction Burton may take the label. It’s not a full-on reveal, as it’s Cruise 2011, but it gives an idea of how Burton’s McQueen will differ and resemble that which came before her. Without a doubt, Burton has sought to retain much of the original flavor, with a flaming red gown, reptilian patterns, and razor-sharp tailoring. In an interview, she cited samurai warriors and Hans Bellmer dolls as her inspiration, and she spoke of a desire to “juxtapose the pale and the delicate with the bold and armorial.” All of that is very McQueen, but Burton’s collection lacks the fire of McQueen’s relentless inventiveness. There was always something dangerous and original about his work, a sense that you were looking at something you had never seen before. In this case, that’s gone. [FabSugar] Keep reading »
