It’s been only a few days and even hours after Sarah Burton’s great moment, both as the designer of Kate Middleton’s wedding gown and as the artistic director of Alexander McQueen, to whom the Costume Institute just payed hommage in its superstar-packed annual Gala. Two major British-glamour giga-events, the royal wedding in London and the Met Gala in New York City, turn out to be highly related to Sarah Burton’s talent and Alexander McQueen’s creative energy which transcends life and death, offering inspiration to fashion people all over the world. Phillip Treacy’s hats dominating the royal wedding combined with co-host Stella McCartney’s, Sarah Burton’s and vintage McQueen gowns, worn by a flock of wealthy and stylish celebrities at Met Gala, can easily build up Haute Couture’s modern landscape, unpretentious, more relaxed and unrestricted as it seems to be. In times of Princes who break the Protocol and Queens who become more reluctant to such initiatives the A-list of the fashion world evolves magically following and sometimes overcoming Anna Wintour’s vision for unending progress and unlimited capacities.
