Kate Moss wears Alexander McQueen iconic dress in Harper’s Bazaar

Supermodel Kate Moss pays tribute to the late Alexander McQueen in the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, reprising the role she once played as a hologram at the end of the designer’s 2006 runway show.

She dons the ruffled organza dress she wore while an image of her was projected for catwalk watchers. See video of that below.

Her homage is tied to the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” Costume Institute exhibit set to open on May 4.

From the press release:

Kate Moss says about McQueen: “He gave women power, while letting them be fragile and vulnerable at the same time. People always used to say he was a misogynist, but it took me a while to realise that he was actually empowering women and not the other way around.”

Of his legacy she says: “There’s never ever going to be anybody like him. His was the most exciting show to see ever, even if you weren’t there. I would hear about it on the phone and hear Lee and hear everyone. There was so much tension, but we had the best laughs. He was a dear friend of mine. I miss him terribly.”

Daphne Guinness says: “What was so incredible about him was he could do the simplest things and the most complicated things. He was a proper genius, and that is a very overused word. If he’d done art, he would have been the best; if he’d done architecture, he would have been the best.”

Where’s her boob?

Michelle Obama turns heads by wearing Alexander McQueen dress at China state dinner

Michelle Obama was representing America at a state dinner hosting the man who is one of her husband’s biggest rivals on the world stage.

But the First Lady has once again made a daring fashion choice, appearing instead last night in a fiery red gown by British designer Alexander McQueen.

The Obamas were hosting Chinese president Hu Jintao at an elaborate state dinner in Washington last night- and Mrs Obama’s fashion choice was not the only controversial thing on the menu.

What do you think of her dress?
