    Default 12-inch boots by Alexander McQueen

    These bizarre shoes would be a tall order for any woman to walk in.
    They may be the height of chic, but itís unlikely that British designer Alexander McQueen tried out his own creations ahead of their unveiling in Paris last night. Instead he left it to his models to gingerly make their way along the catwalk in crystal-studded shoe-boots with 12-inch elevations.
    The platform shoes were part of a collection inspired by Charles Darwinís The Origin Of The Species.

    But the fantasy fauna inspired fashion didn't end there.
    Models with their hair teased into devil-like horns, strutted the catwalk in minidresses decorated with all manner of colourful, elaborate skins.
    Ruffled hemlines were frilled to resemble feathers, and vibrant fabrics were printed to resemble amphibian-like breastplates.
    The high-tech show set then morphed into a prehistoric underwater scene, lending something of an otherworldly feel.

    The weird and wonderful mood was heightened by the models' shaved eyebrows and gills painted on their temples.
    Shimmering stud and crystal-embellished designs played on the models' glossy skin, while elliptical, serpentine jackets made for a graphic contrast to the detailed prints.
    The exclusive invite-only catwalk show was intended to be streamed live to an audience of six million last night, but the Showstudio.com website, on which it was due to be shown, crashed thanks to none other than Lady GaGa.
    The eccentrically-dressed pop princess, who provided the music for McQueen's show, had tweeted that her new single, Bad Romance, would be premiered at the show, citing the website as a source from which to hear it.

    I like the fabric colours. The shoes look like hooves.

    Who wears clothing like this, please? It looks like a costume display from "Midsummer Night's Dream". And those shoes? You gotta be shitting me. How many hours did those models have to practice so they didn't end up falling on their respective asses??

    And last year he had models is such tight clothes that one had difficulty breathing and passed out. I'm guessing he really really hates women.

    ok the shoes are ridiculous (but awesome for a fashion show, just not exactly wearable in real life) but a few of those dresses are really gorgeous. and wearable. just paired with different shoes and accessories of course.
    mcqueen always puts on a great show, but then the actual pieces are often very wearable.

    If they didn't look so fucking pod-like I'd love them... obviously not wearable in real life, but why the hell are they so rounded?
