In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Ornate.”
Forget about subdued and restrained. This week, let’s embrace the breathtakingly extravagant.
In the recent Metropolitan Museum special exhibition, China: Through the Looking Glass, the curator of this show inspires us with stunning couture creations in gowns, dresses, shoes and accessories made from the most ornate, exquisite and extraordinary materials.
This special head piece was created by Alexander McQueen for one of his extravagant collection reflected from an ancient Chinese painting with traditional architecture illustration. As you can see, the headpiece was carved out from wood with minute and accurate details from Chinese houses, trees and white cranes for this stunning piece.
To me, this creation is truly about being ornate and extra ordinary.
