Tim Burton On Couture

What can I say about Tim Burton? That I am an enormous fan? Check. That he is a creative genius? Double check. That I wish I could climb inside his brain for a moment and run through the delightfully playful macabre caverns of his imagination? Triple check!

We're in luck. MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) is holding a major career retrospective of Tim Burton's work from November 22, 2009–April 26, 2010.

In anticipation of this retrospective, filmmaker Tim Burton brilliantly reimagines the season's dark delights through the lens of photographer Tim Walker in the pages of Harper's Bazaar.

It's so beautiful I can't even find the words.

Yummmm!
Everything Burton does is wonderfully delicious eye-candy! And THIS fashion spread is no exception!

Love that gigantic skeleton posing with the models, in the field of roses... The BIG round-headed mummy is neat, too!
