Savage Beauty Opens Today at the Met

Amazing artists always leave the world too soon. But like all great artist that cut their lives short, the legacy of work they leave behind becomes ever more precious.

Alexander McQueen was one of those great innovators of fashion.

Today marks the opening of "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibit features pieces from his post graduate collection to his more recent additions -- including his final collection.

There are around 100 pieces will be on display, all illustrating his evolution from his student beginnings to signature designs he's most known for (i.e. bumster trousers, origami frock coat).

Long live McQueen!
