Alexander McQueen's exhibit at the MET this past week utterly blew my mind. The entire show from the background music, to the rusted mirrors, the wisdom on the walls, the detail in every exquisite piece of fabric...I honestly had my breath taken away the moment I stepped through the entrance. McQueen is a genius and the fashion//art world truly lost one of its stars this past year. I walked out of the exhibit with a totally new frame of mind about the fashion world, and how real works of art ought to look.

" I never planned to acquire a lot of jewels or a lot of husbands. For me, life happened, just as it does for anyone else. I have been supremely lucky in my life in that I have known great love, and of course I am the temporary custodian of some incredible and beautiful things. But I have never felt more alive than when I watched my children delight in something, never more alive than when I have watched a great artist perform, and never richer than when I have scored a big check to fight AIDS. Follow your passion, follow your heart, and the things you need will come."-- Elizabeth Taylor
