FKA Twigs Wears Famous Birds Of Paradise Dress To Alexander McQueen Opening


Not only is FKA Twigs a master dancer, choreographer, and singer, she's equally talented when it comes to her eye for fashion. She almost single-handedly brought back JNCO jeans and baby hair, she wears bondage better than anyone else, and she knows how to pick a gown for an event.

Case in point: the famed Birds of Paradise dress that she wore to perform at the launch of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit in London last night.

Twigs wore it so well, she made the incredible creation look like it was made specifically for her (even though it wasn't). It first appeared in McQueen's spring 2008 collection, which was a tribute to another entrancing style muse, Isabella Blow. Twigs added her own stamp to it, though, wearing it full-length to the floor—instead of pinned up like it was shown on the runway—and staying true to her signature braided buns and gelled down baby hairs.

Even more impressive though, Twigs PERFORMED and DANCED in it.

Is there anything she can't do??
