neon shines through smoky eyes tonight

this week the house of alexander mcqueen presented its last collection under the late lee alexander mcqueen. and, as one would expect, the line was stunning. i mean ahhh-mazing. it made me sad all over again to think that this pure creative genius has come to an end. the f/w '10 collection was richly divine and intricate, created with a couture-like attention to detail. it merged a space-aginess to the history of fashion. all in all it was just so mcqueen.
