Freaky or Fabulous: McQueen's Mental Runway

Freaky or Fabulous: McQueen's Mental Runway

Alexander McQueen is one designer who always manages to be both freaky and fabulous. However, the harsh tone with his Fall collection, for me, veered on the hellish side of freaky. Craftsmanship and wow-factor will never be sacrificed, but these creations were something out of a Matthew Barney feature. It's like that scary movie — Hellraiser? — you can't look away from but makes your hair stand on end. In the end, though, I love scary movies. It's your call: freaky or Fab?

Fabulous. How could you say otherwise? When I first saw this collection yesterday I nearly died from excitement. :) What a show.

I love it! McQueen is always over the top, but he never disappoints. It's genius.

I love it as a work of art and a concept -- I think it's visually stimulate, original, and unexpected. But I don't know if I like it as fashion. Nothing in this collection seems at all wearable by anyone.

oh, and I totally agree with AmandaG, at least McQueen always puts on a great show, even if they are sometimes disturbing...

I am a huge McQueenie, and I absolutely love and want the first two outfits (minus the freaky headpeice and chainmail shirt), but the whole idea is just freaky! the last one is especially scary - it looks like ropes and the model's face is so wierd. I would love to see the actual clothing outside of the runway, though...

Very, very, VERY freaky!!! I can't even concentrate on the clothes because the freakiness distracts me!

That is way too weird for me and I would probably never wear it.

Sometimes it hard to remember that these are fashion "shows". Thanks McQueen for bring on the drama. LOVE! AMAZING! What craftsmanship. The detail in the stitching is mind blowing and the shoes...

Well he certainly is a rebel... the collection altogether is stylishly creepy but some of pieces could be pulled off individually

You have to look past the styling and see the beautiful clothes. Alexander McQueen has always been dark but it's no different really that seeing Dior, John Galliano, Victor and Rolf, and Oliver Theyskens

I have to say, definitely freaky, but like a few others commented, the runway is the place to be creative.
