Theatrical and exuberant are words associated to fashion house Alexander McQueen, and this season, Sarah Burton – the face behind Kate Middleton’s wedding gown – delivered nothing less than a very extravagant show and had the runway buzzing!

The spectacle was a show of ornate tailored garments: double-peplum corseted jackets, harness bustiers, and cage-like dresses decorated with pollinated flowers. The palette choice: cream, pale yellow, red, gold and black. Each of her ‘Queen Bees’ had a metal chokers with jeweled bees, and for her climax, Burton obscured her models’ faces with black meshed beekeeper hats.
