Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty will run at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute from 4 May-31 July 2011. A preview was held in London today at the Ritz Hotel to coincide with London fashion week. Anna Wintour and Samantha Cameron were in attendance for the preview and press conference.

The retrospective at the Met will include some 100 works covering the designer's astounding 19 year career. The catalogue is available on pre-order but will not be released until 31 May 2011. I leave you with these juicy and haunting images from the publication and a BBC interview with Anna Wintour.
