Photographed by Eva K. Salvi.
If you're going to pay your respects to Alexander McQueen, you simply must dress the part. While the late designer's iconic work defined the dress code inside the V&A's new "Savage Beauty" exhibit, the style scene outside was much more diverse. After all, it's not like those armadillo heels are that conducive to strolling around a museum for hours on end. 

The city's must-see show of the moment drew a large number of style stars in pursuit of couture gowns and Kate Moss holograms. It also drew us, in pursuit of museum-goers who were dressed to impress. Let's say it was not a mission: impossible. 

Behold, 16 show-goers who slayed us with their effortless ensembles. A day at the museum is a fairly casual event, but these Londoners stepped it up with their head-turning looks. Here, they share their style secrets and favourite McQueen moments.
