20wild Beauty

Alexander McQueen once described himself as a "romantic schizophrenic" which certainly seems apt when you look at his work. For instance, McQueen's creativity was often expressed through technical wizardry as well as dramatic intensity which can both be seen in the Victoria and Albert exhibition, Savage Beauty in 2011.

The exhibition

featured clothing created by McQueen as well as a number of accessories that were created for his fashion and runway shows. One of the items involved in the exhibition included the above picture which wowed audiences worldwide due to its Victorian Gothic theme and "Romantic Exoticism."
