Fashion: McQueen 2011 Bridal at Paris Fashion Week

The Alexander McQueen collection at Paris Fashion Week 2011

With the commotion surrounding the Royal Wedding this year, all eyes were on Alexander McQueen's Bridal offering at Paris Fashion Week. Sarah Burton has taken the reigns of the avant-garde label since Lee McQueen's premature passing, and is evidently sharing a smile and a nod with the gifted designer by continueing the mad hatter type looks that united him with fame monster Lady Gaga, so well. The hard, asylum-esque theme was fiercely apparent in every costume that steamed down the runway, but was balanced with a soft, fuzzy edge in fur and billowing organza (perhaps an indication into the style Kate Middleton may be going for?). Clearly these looks aren't for every bride (or, correct me if I'm wrong, any bride?), but we are certain to see these 'heritage' silhouettes, contrasting textures and fabrics, and hardline details making their way to universal bridal wear. And in terms of those contemporarily stylish Royals, all I can say is 'watch this space'.
