First Dibs: Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 Look 10

Zack Etheart

The metaphors in Sarah Burton's bee-inspired spring collection for McQueen practically wrote themselves: Burton as queen bee; the fashion set, her busy hive; the clothes, sweet honey that had them buzzing. This look in particular gave us quite the craving: patent leather, vinyl, resin, and organza all worked over into a honeycombed image of femininity; it's sharp, dark, and a little bit sweet. That hat makes for an eye-catching way to go incognito, and the amber accents add a little sugar to the whole sinister mix. The dress underneath it all is the real draw, equal parts body-con and baroque—it's a killer. We call first dibs.
