This is where i'm going tonight

Alexander McQueen Eh Oh...

Sarah Burton had impossible boots to fill at Alexander McQueen this season but I think she did it well. She brings with her designs a new era but also referenced the legendary work and craftsmanship that Lee McQueen so tragically left behind.

The Duchess.

I watched The Duchess tonight. It tells the true story of the Duchess of Devonshire. Her life lived trapped in a loveless marriage, her children and her true love. It is a beautiful reflection of the complexities of society in the 18th century. Of course, the costumes were stunning as well. Michael O'Connor won an Academy Award, a BAFTA and a Satellite for his designs and you can see why. It is a must watch.
