Victoria & Albert Museum
The Victoria & Albert Museumâs Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition has proven to be one of its most popular, with 70,000 tickets sold two days before it opened to the public.
The retrospective has 66 additional garments that were not seen in the earlier exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and has an extra third more space.
The opening on Thursday night saw David and Victoria Beckham (video below), Kate Moss and Jamie Hince, Salma Hayek and FranĂ§ois Pinault, Naomi Campbell, Erin O’Connor, Colin Farrell, Poppy Delevingne, Eva Herzigova and FKA Twigs attend.
Victoria Beckham wore a black strapless gown from her own collection at the V&A gala. Moss wore a design from the pre-autumn 2015 collection from the Alexander McQueen label, while Campbell donned a design from McQueen’s springâsummer 2007 collection.
Moss herself appears in holographic form in the exhibition.
For those who cannot get there in person, Tinie Tempah offers a private view on the BBC’s Iplayer, with a personal tour online on March 14, at 9 p.m.
McQueen committed suicide in 2010 on the eve of his mother’s funeral.
The exhibition, in partnership with Swarovski and others, runs from March 14 to August 2, with admission at ÂŁ16.
