Push Magazine 2 Alexander McQueen Cover

  • Pin it

You might guess why I went for this edition of Push It Magazine: Defender. And even if you didn’t see it, I’ll tell you anyway: McQueen. Yes. Alexander McQueen. There’s a special cover, tribute to his greatness, with a special styling and one of those alien cocoon dresses torn from Star Gate something.

I sometimes think there’s no justice seeing McQueen worn by this and that celeb (which was the SJP CFDA case – the dress was lovely. Flawless. However, there was something wrong with Sarah Jessica Parker wearing it. I may be pushing it too far – you tell me – see her photo right after the jump). I sometimes thing Alexander McQueen’s dresses (some, not all, I admit) are only meant for artful/artsy purposes – museums, most artistic photo shoots and so on. Now that I got that out of my chest – two more Push Defender covers are available: one with Maison Martin Margiela clothing and the other with Bottega Veneta. All photographed by Frank Berlin. As I suspect you’re not all as torn by the McQueen artsyness, please share your favorite Push Defender cover! (photos via 1, 2)

I think this McQueen dress is gorgeous and wearable but Jessica is indeed the wrong person to pull this off. And yes, a lot of his clothes are very artsy and make great photoshoots. Or shall be a delight to watch in museums. Since I hardly take magazines very serious anymore I like to enjoy them in another way: I vote for the one McQueen because I can’t stare at it four ages: how, how did he do that? Amazing tailoring to be in awe with. In real life I can focus on nice AND practical clothes more than enough. This makes me dream…..

I’ve read until my great joy Daphne Guinness has bought Isabella Blow’s McQueen collection. Thank God it doesn’t goes to different owners and the collection stick together. May she have the greatness of heart to donate it once to a museum.
