The odd thing is that sometimes, fashion can tell the future. Two skewed examples: the Harper's Bazaar cover with Paris Hilton dressed as a jailbird, and this McQueen spread from V Magazine, which seems like a spooky last homage to McQueen's patron, Isabella Blow. Besides the fact that the story's called Long Live McQueen, it also features the models in various death-masks, and a quote from the designer that "it was all about decay... I used flowers because they die." As new details surface about Blow's untimely death ("new" = details everyone in the industry already knew, but wouldn't share), the whole spread becomes a little creepy, no?
