Philip Treacy

Philip Treacy
Michael Jackson's actual Thriller jacket with a smiley-face hat? Yeah, that happened at Philip Treacy's phenomenal collection tonight—his first show in London since 1999—as did a hat modeled on the Neverland ranch, complete with a miniature carousel, and a Swarovski-encrusted creation resembling a sparkling white glove. Treacy's trademark feather headdresses were also on show, as well as fantastic experiments with light, including one that covered the model's body entirely like a Christmas Tree.
This was as much a rousing retrospective of Jackson's stage outfits by his longtime co-designers Michael Bush and Dennis Tompkins as it was a millinery collection inspired by said outfits. Piling up the tributes further, Treacy dedicated the show to his late friends Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen. Not one to miss a spectacle, Lady Gaga served as mistress of ceremonies, decked out in a floor-length pink veil and McQueen's Armadillo shoes as she introduced "the greatest milliner of all time."
