The Best of Sarah Burton’s Alexander McQueen, Seen on Celebrities

Sarah Burton’s tenure at Alexander McQueen comes to a close today in Paris, as the creative director bids farewell to the brand with the spring 2024 show. 

Burton has spent her entirety of her 26-year career at the British fashion house. She joined in 1996 as an intern during her time as a fashion student at Central Saint Martins, and was appointed head of womenswear in 2000, taking the helm shortly after Lee McQueen’s death in 2010. Since assuming the top job, she’s outfitted the world’s biggest stars in her designs—breaking through with Kate Middleton’s 2011 wedding dress—all while working to maintain the integrity of the brand’s namesake designer while still creating work that was true to her vision.

It’s safe to say that Burton has done just that during her time at Alexander McQueen. In 2011 she was awarded Designer of the Year by the British Fashion Council and in 2012 she was appointed Officer to the Order of the British Empire for her contributions to fashion. 

While she’s remained a longtime favorite of the Princess of Wales, Burton has also dressed the upper echelons of Hollywood, Beyoncé, Timothée Chalamet, Lady Gaga, and Zendaya among them. Below, take a look back at some of Sarah Burton’s most memorable celebrity looks during her residence at Alexander McQueen.
