“She costumes herself with the bodily rigor that is seen among ballet dancers, whose art depends upon the denial of pain and the mastery of appetite. Even if Guinness insists that her heel-less shoes are comfortable, they connote suﬀering, and render her literally unstable. Her appearance conveys a sense of immense discipline combined with boundless fragility. It is impossible to look at her and not wonder when, in some way or another, she will topple.”

More from the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition.
Alexander McQueen’s designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day. The last few months have been very exciting and an incredible experience for my team and I as we have worked closely with Catherine to create this dress under conditions of the strictest secrecy.Sarah Burton, via The Cut Blog (& another link)
