R.I.P. Alexander McQueen

As many of you must have heard, Lee McQueen, designer and founder of Alexander McQueen, was found dead in his home this morning. He committed suicide after his mother died on February 2nd. At age 40, he was so young. This came as a total and complete shock to me. Wow... This was the death of a fashion god. On, it says that his family has asked for privacy in this time of grief. I understand that completely. Wow.

Here are some of my favorites from this talented designer. 
This photo reminds me of Marie Antoinette. The beautiful pale skin, light hair, and most of all, the wonderful dresses.
Lady Gaga in Bad Romance. Very cool.
Another Bad Romance picture. 
Influential and painful-looking shoes. The ones on the left are what I used for my profile picture.

R.I.P., McQueen.


  1. Its so sad. I always looked forward to seeing what he came up with next.

    You're right, those shoes do look painful.

  2. British Fashion week was right around the corner. This is so devastating.

  3. That is very sad news indeed. I didn't know he did the Lady Gaga ensembles. True talent lost.

  4. Yes this was a shock, I'm so sorry for his family too.

    On a lighter note, thank you so much for coming by DJ's and commenting, hope you keep enjoying the posts.

    I love that first photo of the girls, I actually did a post of that shoot.
