I went to the 2010 BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday as a reporter for AllSaints. I headed down to the red carpet ready for all the stars of the small screen to arrive. Here’s what happened….
Jarvis Cocker popped into my local this evening – couldn’t resist getting this photographic evidence for my dear sister;o
Do you remember the first time?
Alexander (The Great) McQueen CBE
16 March 1969 – 11 February 2010.
I am actually devastated by the news that Alexander (LEE) McQueen passed away today, aged just 40. It’s an absolute shock.
His death was announced this afternoon, 11 February 2010. McQueen was found dead at his London home and paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. A statement released by his office on 11 February 2010 – referring to the designer by his given first name, Lee, read: “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.”
McQueen’s death comes days before London Fashion Week, although McQueen was not scheduled to show in the British capital.
On 3 February 2010, he wrote on his Twitter page that his mother had died the day before, adding: “RIP mumxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.” Four days later he wrote that he had had an “awful week” but said “friends have been great“, adding: “now i have to some how pull myself together“.
Fashion has lost a legend today and the fashion world will be a less pretty world for it.
Long live McQueen.
The fashion legend that was Yves Saint Laurent has passed away today, aged 71, from a long period of ill health. The cause of death has not yet been announced however.
It was said that YSL was a reclouse and only appeared at the end of his runway collections. He was a very private person, who gave women power and freedom.
A sad day indeed.
