Adorned in a prismatic feathered gown for the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty gala last night, FKA Twigs perched upon the event's red carpet like a beautiful parrot amongst the indigenous flora and fauna of her native London.
Toasting the largest and most expansive retrospective of the late designer to date at the Victoria and Albert museum, the "EP2" singer was peak Twigs in one of McQueen's most daring pieces from his Spring 2008 collection — with her signature gelled baby hair and septum ring on full display.
And while the bold, kaleidoscopic look felt like another defining and shapeshifting moment for the style harbinger, she channeling an aquiline appeal in a way only she could, Twigs also reminded me of her style and music antecedent, Björk.
I mean, lest we forget, Björk — the Icelandic electronic dance queen — did write the book on how to wear a bird as couture. Birds of a feather!
