Dirty Toenails and Breathtaking Shoes From Alexander McQueen’s Runway

The Alexander McQueen show took place in Paris this week, and the shoes were very edgy and almost over the top, though we were equally shocked by the dirty toenails. I’ve been a fan of the designer’s work since I caught a glimpse of my first pair of McQueen heels, and this current collection tickles my fancy just as much. We have to admit that the shoe styles spotted on the runway are anything but wearable. Nonetheless, they’re worthy of some admiration.

If you love to explore the visual feasts that fashion week runways have to offer, continue on. These Alexander McQueen shoes aren’t for the faint-hearted, so take the artistic value into consideration and enjoy as you look over the offerings!

Are you thinking the same thing I’m thinking? What is up with this model’s dirty toenails!? I hope that this was an intentional artistic statement of some sort because Alexander McQueen deserves to be worn on better pedicured toes!

Are you more shocked by the shoes or the dirty toenails?

So, obviously, these runway styles aren’t available for us, everyday ladies. I found some studded and skull-detailed Alexander McQueen styles at Neiman Marcus though. Take a peek, and tell us which pair you’d make your next shoes!
