PF/W2011 McQueen Crystal Feather Gown

This amazing Alexander McQueen gown was made infamous after appearing on the red carpet of the Met gala on super model Coco Rocha! She wore the navy version of this Pre-Fall 2011 gown. It was only produced in those two shades and in extremely limited quantities exclusive to only the Alexander McQueen shops and Net-A-Porter. You can still view it on the first page of this collection on the Alexander McQueen site. It encapsulates everything that is great about McQueen aesthetic - the fantasy, the superior workmanship, the spectacle and of course the jaw dropping beauty! The dress is a confection of bias cut weightless silk that floats to the ground over an inner layer of silk. The yardage in that top layer is astonishing - it is so fine and of such high grade fabric that until you begin to lift and view it closely you don't realize that there is actually yards and yards and yards there. The bodice is gathered vertically from waist to the embellished neck with a keyhole running down the front. The neckline is heavily embellished with dazzling crystals. To this is a hip piece that is shaped and has been hand applied with white feathers. More huge and high grade crystals adorn the waist of the pelmet waist piece in a thick band that circles the waist. The combination of high romance and stark rawness was part of the genius of McQueen and it lives on in this stunning gown. A rare piece as these were made in very limited quantities - it is a masterpiece! Excellent condition and was never worn by my client and has been meticulously stored since purchasing.
