Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty | The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The Towering Genius of Alexander McQueen. Alexander McQueen’s extraordinary talent was not just limited to creating clothes: the man also knew how to put on a spectacular show, quite unlike any other. In this post I am going to look back on McQueen’s fashion career. Of course I will by no means be able to cover everything, and when I say ‘look back’ I don’t really mean it literally: I sadly never attended a single McQueen show, and I am ashamed to say it is only now that I have properly discovered some of his most amazing shows and collections, many of which took place long before I was really aware of fashion. Still, this will hopefully imbue the post with something of an optimism: not so much looking back, but rather looking into, and looking forwards at, the incredible legacy which Alexander McQueen leaves.

Grace Coddington. Early life and modeling career[edit] At the age of 26, she was in car accident that left her disfigured (she lost her eyelid). She later had plastic surgery to have it reconstructed. Two years after the accident, at the age of 28, she was interviewed by British Vogue's Editor, Beatrix Miller, and was employed as a Junior Editor. After nineteen years as Photo Editor with British Vogue,[3] she moved to New York to work for Calvin Klein.[4] In July 1988, she joined Anna Wintour at American Vogue, where she remains the magazine's creative director. The September Issue[edit] Coddington came into the public eye in 2009 with the release of The September Issue, a fly-on-the-wall documentary about the making of the September 2007 issue of Vogue. Personal life[edit] She raised her nephew Tristan, since the age of 8, after the death of her sister Rosemary.[7] References[edit] Jump up ^ Grace Coddington, Didier Malige, Sally Singer, and Michael Roberts (2006).

Perhaps that old adage about never working with animals and children didn'tmake it to the fashion world. Or perhaps the fashion world, typically willful, just chose to ignore it. Whatever the case, the creative director of Vogue, Grace Coddington, and photographer Arthur Elgort seem blissfully unworried as they corral four children under the age of 12 and one palomino into their remake of Annie Get Your Gun. Re-creating theWild West at an East Hampton horse farm, Vogue's version of the musical stars models Carmen Kass (as Annie Oakley) and Patrick Sullivan (as Frank Butler), a Buffalo Bill look-alike (whose method acting extends toturning up in an Annie Get Your Gun T-shirt, circa the Bernadette Peters years), and racks and racks of Ralph Lauren clothes.

It's only eleven in the morning, but already the heat is fierce. The door of the location van swings open, and Carmen Kass swaggers out in afringed skirt, cowboy boots, and a ten-gallon hat.

You can use them to convert from the shoe size used in one country or region to the shoesize used in another country or region. However, store and manufacturer practice varies widely. Having studied many published shoe size tables on the net, I would not trust any of them. Note: Microsoft Internet Explorer now gives a "security warning" about DHTML used on this page.
