i was shocked today to hear that the incredible alexander mcqueen passed away. he was a true visionary, artist and innovator. every season he pushed the boundaries not only in his designs, but also in his presentations. i don't have the pleasure of owning a mcqueen piece, but i did try on a gorgeous, but simple velvet strapless dress of his last year. i was so impressed with it's construction, simple lines on the outside but inside the dress was an intricate corset. it fit perfectly and made my body look amazing, he really knew how to dress a woman's body so it looked it's best. on top of his obvious talent, the man himself was such a character. i'll always remember him flashing the crowd his union jack boxers! above are some of my favourite shots of him and one of sienna wearing a favourite of his dresses. i'll always remember energy, your smile, your awe inspiring runway shows, esp. the kate hologram below and all your beautiful designs.
a true original.
you are a legend mr. mcqueen and greatly missed.
