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.
