Kristen McMenamy gives off a sombre tone backstage at the McQ Fall/Winter 2012 show designed by creative director Sarah Burton. She wears an unfinished sheer dress (a corset and gold detailed belt were added for the show) with ivory leaf appliqué and a full multi-layered tulle skirt from the collection. This look became particularly memorable as it was the finishing piece for part of the theatrical finale which consisted of miss McMenamy becoming entranced while gazing above as auburn leaves fell; eventually all lights faded apart from a single spotlight leading K. M. through a clouded, almost supernatural woodland area to finally enter a cottage radiating with colourful strobe lighting. It was the most perfectly dramatic finish, especially as it marked the runway debut of McQ (the Alexander McQueen diffusion line). via.

Going shopping today, so here’s a little prayer. Dear Lord, please let me not spend all of my money on clothes that I don’t need, and makeup that I will never ever use. Instead give me the strength to simply try on princess dresses without buying them. Amen.
