After the death of Alexander McQueen, who would have turned 41 yesterday, March 17, his latest collection instantly became in great demand among Hollywood stars. “Manta” dresses from McQueen's spring-summer collection have become a “star” tribute to the designer, appearing in the wardrobes of Naomi Campbell, Salm Hayek, Daphne Guinness.
The main decoration of the dresses was bright multi-colored prints, thanks to digital processing, only remotely reminiscent of strange sea creatures. The prints are inspired by the underwater world of the Maldives, where McQueen visited last year.
Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Annabelle Nelson, muse and close friend of McQueen, tried on "Manta" dresses at the finale of the Fashion for Relief show during London Fashion Week. Salma Hayek wore an Alexander McQueen dress at an Oscar party in Hollywood. Actress AnnPaquin chose a dress from the designer's spring collection for the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet ceremony, and British model Lily Cole wore the same dress at the premiere of Dr. Parnassus's Imaginarium.
In the London boutique of Alexander McQueen, the dresses are already sold out - despite the impressive cost of 2.8 thousand pounds.
