When I got the call I exalted. I pranced around my boxy university room in Edinburgh totally joyous (this news also prompted one of the best high-fives I've ever received, but I digress).

It was a good look and quite easily put him in the running for best dressed Chancellor in the past 50 years. Admittedly the competition from Ken Clarke, John Major, and Alistair Darling isn't exactly that strong, and the only thing Gordon Brown wore well was a scowl.

As you enter the exhibition, you are met with the face of Alexander McQueen merging into his trademark skull, which for me signified the work and the person merging into the visionary he became. Known for his legendary catwalks and theatrical style, this has been translated into exhibition form.
