monday evening's metball gala celebrated the works of the late alexander mcqueen, and many female attendees arrived at the event in some of his finest creations. while most guys were in the standard black tux, vogue editor hamish bowles arrived in the above ensemble from alexander mcqueen fall winter 2006. i really like the tartan kimono, the floral detailings looked amazing. not sure about the fitted tartan trousers, nor the christian louboutin "mikaraja" shoes. it's like scotland meets japan meets india. a little too busy for me, but hey he looked like he had bundles of fun, so why not.

  2. I was in love ( and still i am) with this outfit since I saw it on the runway. It was my favourite Man's McQueen collection! Hamish looks great and younger! ;) Love McQueen

  4. we like cause it's a gala so people should have mixed things up a little. Also, i don't normally comment but i have to congratulate you on your hard work. The blog is really great and so is your attention to details. Great job!

  6. Loved Hamish's outfit. Definitely one of the best from that sad and boring red carpet.

  8. That is what Met Gala is about. Showing your sense of style.

  9. Some 'ensembles' should just remain on the runway (the wrap alone could work though)....it doesnt help that he's giving that cheesy smile coupled with the chicken leg pose :D
