I want to meet the girl that goes on a bagel run in this. But I hate the sunglasses. Because the sunglasses are what ruins this.
Seriously though, this is kind of amazing. And for those of you who donâ€™t spend all of your time at work pretending to write spreadsheets while secretly reading style.com all day long, this is Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
Most people know her as the designer of the worldâ€™s most famous boring dress, the one Princess Leah married Prince Valium in last year at the Worlds Fair in London, but she is now the head designer at McQueen, taking over after Lee McQueen hanged himself at the height of his career. If youâ€™re into referring to fashion designers as geniuses, then by all accounts he was a genius. If you didnâ€™t have a chance to see the show last year â€œSavage Beautyâ€ at the Met, definitely check out the catalog. I saw the show, and despite the gummy handed brats running around and the blathering masses of people elbowing their way through like it was a Sample Sale, it was a pretty amazing show, especially after I ate a klonopin.
But can you imagine getting the job she has now? â€œOh hey, your bestie, who is crazy famous, and is also your boss, just died and untimely and tragic death. Can you run up a couple dresses for us?â€ Â Jesus, pass her the klonopin. And I think researching hospital contracts is tough.Â However, despite the doily tee shirt and skirt combo that Princess Jasmine almost married Jafar in (before Aladdin stepped in andÂ made her sisterâ€™s ass famous), Burton has done some really profound things, while remaining very much under the radar. I encourage you, followers of fashion, the check her handiwork out here.
