Have you ever taken a major fashion risk? What am I saying, of course you have. So you know that sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t, right? We’ve all seen the times when it doesn’t work and it’s a total train wreck. But when it does, it’s like magical, sparks flying, and pure bliss. I’m not really sure if FKA Twigs’ dress at the Alexander McQueen gala worked or not, but sparks were definitely flying.
The English singer-songwriter wore a piece from McQueen’s birds of paradise collection to the namesakes “Savage Beauty” gala at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. And I have to say, it’s stunningly strange. I don’t hate it, but I also don’t love it. I’m actually really confused about my emotions toward this dress. The colors are so vivid that my eyes almost hurt (mostly because I wear only black), but I love the neckline and costume-y feathered collar. So I’m mostly just intrigued as to how she chose this number.
And as interesting as I find her dress, I couldn't help but think about all of the other things that it reminds me of. So here are 5 things FKA Twigs looked like. Enjoy.
1. The NBC Peacock Logo
If you haven't ever really looked at the NBC logo, then you've missed out on the little peacock head in between the red and purple feathers. And now that you see it, you're seeing how much FKA looks like it.
2. Melted Crayon Art
Just look at the way the colors blend. It's like a hot mess, but you can't help but look at it and also want to make one to hang over your bed.
3. Toucan Sam from the Fruit Loops Box
This is like a total blast from the past, but I honestly feel like she could just be on this box, next to Toucan Sam. It would make Fruit Loops relevant again.
Minus the collar, the whole dress just looks like tie dyed butterflies, which don't technically exist, but...
5. Elizabeth I of England
Dat collar though. They are the same.
