To Russia With Love: Alexander McQueen’s Fall/Winter 2011-12 menswear collection was an ode to Russia. Statuesque male models in militant fashions marched through a mazed runway which seemed to evoke an essence of an old Soviet Union.

Moscow—Russia’s capital city—has the second largest population of billionaires in the world after New York City. Money talks at the end of the day (even if it doesn’t have lips).
