Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2012 Backstage Film


Ready for some fashion porn?

If so, Sean Frank's enchanting backstage footage from the Spring 2012 Alexander McQueen show is sure to get your pulse racing.

Those fluttering hems, those tightly coiled braids ... it's all just too good. 

And though you've no doubt already spent countless hours analyzing each of Sarah Burton's immaculately designed runway looks, the beauty of the dialogue-free film is that it shines a spotlight on all the tiny little details: the flash of a silvery nail, the webby design of a lace headpiece, and the twinkle of a gold-dipped hem.

"I was thinking about a woman as an object of desire," Burton says in a statement. "We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them. This is a collection about excess—an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme."

Bring. It. On.
