R.I.P. Alexander McQueen

British fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen has been found dead today after committing suicide. His office confirmed the death of the 40-year-old, calling it a 'tragic loss'. He was found hanged at his London apartment this morning. It's thought that McQueen was distraught over the loss of his beloved mother who died 10 days ago. His death comes just 3 years after his very close friend Isabella Blow took her own life.

I was really shocked when I heard of these sad news and I still am. I always admired McQueen's work and loved that he often caused controversy with his collections and runway shows which brought him the title 'l'enfant terrible'. The fashion world lost one of it's greatest talents - Alexander McQueen will be missed! R.I.P.!
