Suzy Menkes has a couple bones to pick with Andrew Bolton's curation of the Alexander McQueen exhibit: "Was Mr. McQueen really an artist who just happened to work in cloth? Mr. Bolton might have discussed the designer's place in the Brit Art scene, alongside the Chapman brothers, or compared his fascination with nature's decadence with that of Damien Hirst. Instead, we get Sarah Jessica Parker's breathless and witless take on the McQueen style." [NYT]
