Modelinia sits brokenhearted with the news of designer Alexander McQueen’s passing after reading the statement given by his family: “On behalf of Lee McQueen’s family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand, has been found dead at his home. 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. Lee’s family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this.”
Alexander McQueen consistently created collections that were loved and gushed over by all, as celebs and models alike always turned to the brilliant designer to fashion them for red carpet events. Everyone from Lady Gaga to Raquel Zimmermann to Daphne Guinness have been spotted in the armadillo shoes that everyone has been obsessing over from last season. His talent was obvious and will not soon be forgotten. He was an inspiration to us all.
