Paris Couture: Alexander McQueen Fall 09

Fashion's bad-boy and genius, Alexander McQueen produced another beautiful spectacle this season on the runway. His dark and twisted sense of humor and Gothic references are mingled with subtle digs at his fellow designers and the current economic climate. Edward Gorey parasol hats and "Brazil" movie-inspired makeup accessorized the models. Escher prints adorned a few dresses, a Poiret cocoon silhouette, snakelike coils, tubes and exaggerated Dior-like shapes rounded out this cheeky macabre collection. A heap of darkened props of runways past sat in the middle of the stage like the corpses of excess past.
