Alexander McQueen Hologram Belt

Perhaps it's the influence of my sci-fi-lovin' brothers, but this belt strangely appeals to me despite its plastic-y sheen. Then again, I wore a dress last week that prompted a friend to call me "Uhura" and another to ask which superpower I had. (It was a strong, fitted silver and black shift with boxy, faux-fur-lined shoulders and collar.) This belt looks like a piece of hanging plastic in Scotty's control room after the Enterprise has been nearly destroyed by Klingons--and there is something irresistible about Scotty's control room. This particular belt most likely won't make it into the vault, but a girl can look on with bemusement, can't she?
P.S. I forgot to mention that I absolutely loved the "Hologram Room" in the newer series. The idea of creating an entirely illusionary world appeals to the literature lover in me.

I Aboslutley, positively love the patent leather on that McQueen belt!
