Anna Wintour on Alexander McQueen's legacy
The Grand Old Lady of New York's Central Park - the Metropolitan Museum of Art - was in town on Tuesday for British Fashion Week, and she had quite an entourage: Anna Wintour, Stella McCartney and Samantha Cameron.
But that's the pull of the museum. Thomas Campbell, its British boss, was here to launch the Met's forthcoming exhibition Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, which opens there on 4 May.
The show is also the star of its famous Costume Institute Gala on 2 May. Not only is it one of the world's most glamorous affairs, but it also pays for a whole section of the museum's annual activity. Anna Wintour is the fundraiser's co-chair and talks here about the impact of the late Alexander McQueen.
