alexander mcqueen question.

i'm trying to find out the name, or any other information about the woman in the centerpiece of alexander mcqueen's spring 2001 show.

at the time, i remember seeing an article about her and her work (i think she's some kind of performance artist) in a european magazine, but it was expensive so i didn't buy it, and then forgot the whole thing completely until now. ooops.

here's a link to an image, in which she's naked, in case you're reading this from work. i wish i could find better (closer) images, but no luck so far.

descriptive text from "fashion wire daily" - (

At the end of the show, the glass walls of the padded cell were slashed open, releasing hundreds of giant, brightly-colored butterflies into the atmosphere, while a plump nude artist/model smoking a hookah reclined in Alice and Wonderland or Aubrey Beardsley-like splendor.

McQueen said the show was inspired by a photographic image by Joel Peter Witkin.
