Tim Blanks Throws Back to McQueen’s Legendary “Joan” Show

-------

Fire on the runway

Philipp Plein and Roberto Cavalli ruffled some front-row feathers this season with daring shows that featured fire on the runway. Naomi Campbell, who starred in the former’s flaming romp, recently told us, “To feel that heat…I’ve done a few [risky things for fashion], like being on a crane. [But this time], I was more worried about the audience: Are they going to get up and run?” Run they did not, but neither Plein’s nor Cavalli’s adventures in pyrotechnics managed to earn the same acclaim as Alexander McQueen’s fiery Fall 1998 show. The latest edition of Tim Blanks’ Throwback Thursday video series revisits McQueen’s iconic Joan of Arc-inspired outing, which culminates stunningly with Erin O’Connor writhing on the catwalk, surrounded by a grand ring of fire. Watch the video—and feel the heat—here.
