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 theĀ indigenous flora and fauna of her native London.

Toasting the largestĀ and most expansive retrospective of the late designer to date at the Victoria and Albert museum,Ā the "EP2" singerĀ was peak Twigs inĀ one of McQueen's most daring pieces from hisĀ Spring 2008 collection ā€” with her signatureĀ gelled baby hair and septum ring on full display.


And while the bold, kaleidoscopic look felt like another defining and shapeshifting moment forĀ the style harbinger, sheĀ channeling an aquiline appeal in a way only she could, Twigs also reminded me of her style and musicĀ antecedent, Bjƶrk.

I mean, lest we forget, Bjƶrk ā€” the Icelandic electronic danceĀ queen ā€” did write the book on how to wear a bird as couture.Ā Birds of a feather!
