Sad news in the fashion world as the details of Alexander McQueens death circulate the Internet. He was a brilliant British fashion designer who dressed the likes of Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman and Cameron Diaz. His fashion shows were theatrical, fun to watch and his designs were outrageous (and expensive).
You may not know this, but he designed the outfit Janet Jackson was wearing during the “wardrobe malfunction” at the 2004 Super Bowl. (Doesn’t that seem like it was yesterday??)
There has been a lot of talk about the crazy outfit Lady Gaga wore at the British Music awards. The outfit was a tribute to McQueen, as her style almost paralleled his vision.
His designs will be missed at future Fashion Week shows, but we can enjoy the Spring 2010 collection, his last contribution to haute fashion.
I could never afford a “real” McQueen, but I am glad I snaged some of his designs when he debuted a line for Target last year.
