Exploring Savage Beauty out of hours

Thanks to McQueen and the V&A, a lucky gang of Instagrammers were treated to a private tour of the smash exhibition – check out the shots here

Ever wanted to explore that sell-out exhibition without jostling through the crowds? Some lucky Instagram users have been given the chance to do just that with the V&A’s smash Alexander McQueenSavage Beauty show, as part of the app’s #Empty project. The scheme has already seen the world’s best ‘grammers get to explore the Frieze, Tate, Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum of Art after hours, but last week it was the London exhibition that provided the backdrop for their snaps, allowing a group to get up close and personal with items from McQueen’s most fabled collections. Explore our favourite shots from #EmptySavageBeauty in the gallery above, and search the hashtag on Instagram to see the full set of images.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, in partnership with Swarovski, supported by American Express, with thanks to M∙A∙C Cosmetics, technology partner Samsung and made possible with the co-operation of Alexander McQueen, runs until 2 August 2015. Tickets still available. www.vam.ac.uk/savagebeauty
