McQueen Samples the Queen for Fall RTW

Everyone was talking about Alexander McQueen's Fall Ready-to-Wear collection, the most stunning thing on the runways for fashion week (in my humble opinion). Having just returned from a 2-week trip to India myself, I was charmed by McQueen's maharaja-inspired looks (wish I had bought more pairs of the lovely slippers) but absolutely blown away by the ones taking cues from the royals. What's on my must have list? This outrageous Union Jack and Queen Elizabeth II print dress (left).
