McQueen gets his wings

If you believe that every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings, per Frank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life,” then I guess bells were ringing yesterday.

At an abbreviated presentation of the late great designer Lee Alexander McQueen’s final fashion collection reviewed by (with photos by Giovanni Giannoni), there was this gown ~ with digitally-engineered angel wings sprouting perfectly from the shoulders and visible through the mirror of the grand salon of Paris-based parent company Francois Pinault.

If only McQueen could have found his own Clarence in time.
