At its best, runway fashion delivers pure magic. The mid-Nineties through the Aughts were a golden age of such magic, and one of its greatest sorcerers was Lee Alexander McQueen. Season after season, McQueen would transport his audiences to places fantastical — usually exquisite, often dark, sometimes on that treacherous precipice between sanity and madness. He awed and he outraged, and always, he captivated. “So what?” was not in his repertoire.
McQueen’s brilliant body of work provides the structural foundation for the compelling documentary “McQueen.” The film, directed by Ian Bonhôte and written and co-directed by Peter Ettedgui, opens today in New York at the Angelika Film Center and Landmark at 57 West, and in Los Angeles at Landmark and Pacific Arclight Hollywood.

In a custom Dior dress fit for a supermodel, @karliekloss married her longtime love, @joshuakushner, in upstate New York yesterday evening. No word yet on honeymoon plans or, more interesting, the guest list. Kloss’ new sister-in-law, Ivanka Trump, did however share her congratulations when they couple became engaged in the summer. “So, so happy for you and Josh! I feel blessed to have you as a sister (!!!) Karlie and look forward to the happy memories we will create together as a family!” wrote Trump on Instagram.
