FKA Twigs paid tribute to Alexander McQueen at the opening of the 'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty' exhibition.

The 'Two Weeks' hitmaker honoured the late designer - who committed suicide in February 2010 - by sporting a parrot-inspired gown from his S/S 08 collection to the event held at London's V&A Museum last night (13.03.15).

The raven-haired beauty looked stunning in the vibrant rainbow creation which featured a feathered collar and floor length skirt as she arrived at the dinner to mark the opening of the exhibition which features over 240 pieces of McQueen's work including dresses, kimonos and hand painted glass.

The 27-year-old singer - who is the girlfriend of actor Robert Pattinson - was joined at the launch by a host of fashion's finest including designer Victoria Beckham and her husband David Beckham.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell was also in attendance along with Kate Moss who showed off her slender frame in a sheer black lace dress as she arrived at the event with her husband Jamie Hince.

The exhibition has already been extended to meet public demand for tickets ahead of its official opening tomorrow (14.03.15).

The display originally planned to close its doors in late July but will now run until August 2 and has released another 50,000 tickets to cater to the high demand.

The exhibition will also extend its opening hours to allow for the influx of visitors.

The V&A's director Martin Roth said at the time: "With just two months to go, we are seeing an unprecedented demand for Savage Beauty but we also wanted to reassure people that there are still tickets available.

"We are committed to providing access to as many as possible during its 20-week run and so pleased to now offer many more opportunities to see this magnificent show in London."

Since tickets to the 'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty' display went on sale last year, over 30,000 have been sold to customers all over the globe, breaking the museum's existing advance sales record.
