The Daily Need

A retrospective of the work of fashion designer Alexander McQueen was shown to journalists Monday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, hours before the Met Costume Institute Gala, one of the fashion world's most prestigious events. The retrospective of McQueen's work, entitled "Savage Beauty," is the first since his suicide last year at the age of 40. Since the visionary designer's death, the Alexander McQueen label has been helmed by McQueen's protege, Sarah Burton, who designed the wedding dress worn by Kate Middleton last week as she wed Prince William. The exhibition runs from May 4 to July 31, 2011. Photo: AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews
