Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment.
— Alexander McQueen
 
I’ve never thought of myself as overly feminine, or girly or a sterotypical woman. Sure, I love shoes and sequins and feathers and tulle. But I don’t get my nails done, I don’t care if I don’t wear make up and I rarely get my hair done until it’s particularly embarrasing for those around me. My childhood was all about rough and tumble, fun and play. I dressed up, I played with boys, I liked cars and collecting rocks. I wore pants and t-shirts and was a general tomboy. But I’ve always loved the fantasy of glamour, the allure of the glow of Hollywood, the red carpet. I have always admired and loved looking at the beautiful dresses of the red carpet, the haute couture runway collections at the launch of movies, at award ceremonies. I love fabrics, detail, the idea that a beautiful dress was hand made, crafted and pieced together by someone who cares for fashion. From the sketches to the final work, I am enthralled in fashion. This is why I fell for Alexander McQueen.
 
This weeks challenge was all about Celebrity and as someone who prides themselves on not buying trashy-gossip rags, I knew I needed to rely on my love of true fashion for this challenge. I took to my scrapbook, of images my grandmother and friends had given me over the years. Clippings from Vogue and Bazaar of runways and redcarpets. I wanted to feel like a celebrity at the prime of their career. At the Oscars. With a sexy man on my arm, an award in my hand.I was inspired by this beautiful black and gold Alexander McQueen gown worn by Jessica Chastain. It was overly embroidered, with a high attention to detail and it made my heart flutter. The detail of a piece of fine art. I wanted to replicate that on my plus-size body. My beautiful friend Danimezza took this photographs of me when I went to visit her and her son Aidan. I had such a wonderful time, and when I saw these images I cried, because I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life. Thank you Danielle.
