Breaking news: Alexander McQueen found dead


Fashion designer Alexander McQueen - who just one year ago debuted a capsule collection for Target - has been found dead in his London home. He was only 40 years old. You can read the details here on Yahoo. From their obit: "His clothes were sexy and distinctive, dramatic and different, perfect for red-carpet presentations and late night rock gatherings". His collection for Target followed a similar vein, like this sleeveless black harness dress and edgy bikini.

While I didn't personally care for his Target collection, his couture line had many A-list celebrity fans, including Sandra Bullock and Cameron Diaz, who both wore his creations on the red carpet. And more recently, Lady Gaga made waves when she wore McQueen's Spring 2010 lobster-claw shoes in her "Bad Romance" music video. RIP, Alexander; the fashion world will miss you.

This news is so very tragic, I have always been a big fan of Alexander McQueen. His clothes are incredible for both women and men. He was incredibly talented. I am sad to say I will never be able to own something of his. My heart goes out to his husband and family.

Sandhya, welcome to my blog! To answer your question: Target will roll out Jean-Paul Gaultier’s designer collaboration on March 7, then Zac Posen’s line on April 25. After that, Gaby Basora's Tucker collection should hit stores around mid-summer.
