A tribute to Alexander McQueen‘s artistic output presented in Vogue US is an awe-inspiring retrospective of the stellar career, and a thorough preview of the upcoming Savage Beauty exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute on May 4th. Alexander the Great is a beautiful story of the fashion pioneer and Enfant Terrible in one.

The powerful impact leaves a priceless and timeless reminiscence.
