RIP Alexander McQueen

I'm not big into fashion, but this designer has created a lot of beautiful things, and designed some music-related images (a Bjork album cover, the "lobster" shoes in the Bad Romance video).

Very sad news - he's apparently commited suicide, not long after his mother's death.

Here's a link to a story on another site that I'm including because it has some snapshots of his work.

This is very sad. May he find the peace that he could not find here on Earth.

I admit to not "getting" a lot of high fashion, but I love looking at fashion that is simply beautiful.

He styled this cover for Bjork:



And Lady GaGa borrowed this silhouette:



Including these ridiculous-and-yet-somehow-oddly-compelling shoes:



And remember that heinous Kenley from Project Runway? She totally stole from him for one challenge (original on the left, Kenley's on the right):

He designed this amazing tartan gown for Sarah Jessica Parker that I adore:

I'd forgotten she premiered her song at his show - that's pretty cool.

Best Bjork song ever.

Not gonna lie, that Kate Moss thing was stunning. But I don't know how I feel about the theme from Schindler's List as the music.
