Sarah Burton does it again this pre-fall season for Alexander McQueen. Short velvet dresses with laser-cut details called to mind medieval tunics, and generously cut capes with draped pendants were clearly inspired by the church, while high-necked dresses (with and without sleeves) added to the effortless beauty of the collection. With a strict palette of red, black, and white, Burton still managed to keep the looks rooted firmly in the 21st century. See more of the collection after the jump:
The European Southern Observatory has released the first image taken with its “Very Large Telescope Survey Telescope ” (VST), which is apparently the world’s largest telescope for surveying our skies in visible light. The photo is of the Carina Nebula.
Unlike other telescopes that can only capture small portions of the sky, the VST can photograph massively large regions due to its 268-megapixel CCD camera named OmegaCAM.
