For fall 2011 Sarah Burton Creative Director of Alexander McQueen designed a collection inspired by “The Ice Queen and Her Court“, which is a perfect fit to the rumors flying around about Kate Middleton possibly wearing McQueen on her wedding day. The models donned metal head coverings similar to armor worn by knights and pale makeup, a small color palette of white, lilac and black. Multiple zippers sewn in the wool tweeds, mink and fox fur used for trimmings on skirts and jacket hoods. Studded velvet, organza, and silk were also used in these wonderful creations.
