Just a few days after the Royal Wedding where the bride and her maid of honor wore designs from the Alexander McQueen fashion house, the late designer and the current head of the line, Sarah Burton, was honored in New York.
The design industry gave their nod of approval to the McQueen bridal designs.
On Sunday night celebrities such as Madonna, Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayak, Beyonce, Kate Hudson and many others graced the Red Carpet at New York's Museum of Metropolitan Art for the annual Costume Institute Gala to honor the late Alexander McQueen's contribution to fashion. Madonna attended the 'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty' with her manager Guy Oseary.
Madonna made an appearance in a silky teal blue decadent gown which featured glittery stars down the train. Her '50s hair, red lips and complementary make-up also enhanced her golden Hollywood look.
Madonna told the media "I miss him. I think he was a brilliant designer."
Although McQueen committed suicide last year, the designs he left behind along with the new designs flowing from his fashion house are more popular than ever. McQueen's designs have been worn by First Lady Michelle Obama, Kate Moss and Rihanna.
The McQueen 'Savage Beauty' exhibit opens to the general public today (5/4/11). It is the first retrospective of the designer's gifts.
