Zoom Shot: Queen Bees at Alexander McQueen

Honey bees were in the details at Alexander McQueen's spring 2013 collection, which drew inspiration from queen bees presiding over the nest. Gold collars shaped like bee clusters and hexagonally-woven hats seemed both ominous and protective on the runway. But what caught our eyes were the regal details like this red cotton off-the-shoulder dress, reminiscent of the neckline and sleeves popularized under Queen Victoria's reign and updated with a plunging v-neck.
