According to Vogue, "The late Alexander McQueen was the master of transportive beauty statements, one who dreamed up fantastical hair and makeup to match the other worldly clothes sent down the runway of his self-titled fashion house each season. A close look at her version of McQueen beauty is revealing: There are the ethereal white lashes from Fall 2015, which appear frostbitten below bleached brows, while for Spring 2012, an equally fairylike gilded cap crowns models’ heads. Headpieces have long been a distinguishing house signature, but Burton’s variations (conceived in collaboration with hairstylist Guido Palau shift boldly in tone, from the pearly birdcages of Fall 2013 to the sharp sci-fi visors from the previous year.

Though typically loaded with undercurrents of futurism and strength, an eccentric romance has flowed through the shows’ most memorable looks, starting with the knotted Rapunzel braids and the silver pin helmet from her first two runway outings, and on through to last season's striking blood red lips and slicked waist-grazing plaits—a hint of what may come tonight, when the house's latest collection bows in Paris."
