Alexander McQueen 1969-2010

Today we received some very sad news out of London. Trendsetting British designer Alexander McQueen was found dead in his London home.

This statement was released by his office:
"At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee's family," said a statement released by his office, referring to him by his real name.

The death of the celebrity designer comes just days before the beginning of London Fashion Week and, perhaps tellingly, just days after the death of his beloved mother.

This is his sad tweet from last Wednesday;
"I'm letting my followers know the my mother passed away yesterday if it she had not me nor would you RIP mumxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx."

He has regularly dressed Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Fergie and just about every other star who needed to look amazingt in the last 20 years.
McQueen's showing at New York Fashion Week, scheduled for today at 3 p.m., has since been canceled.
