Shipwreck


This is definitely one of the best photographs of the decade I think, and it's probably the reason why I call the Alexander McQueen dress the "shipwreck" dress. Everything about this is perfect, Natalia's serene pose, her eyes closed, her tousled beach hair, the ocean, the sand, the colors.

It's like a poem.

This reminds me of Davy Jones' Face in Pirates of the Caribbean. That and his crusty ass ship. Didn't Bjork wear this in blue somewhere? Or... someone else, I can't remember.

Ohh!! I just saw the Alexander McQueen exhibit today. This dress was there and definitely my favorite. Love everything about this photo, too.
