Fashion Pals say Goodbye

Supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss joined other stars  at the private funeral of  designer Alexander McQueen yesterday.

They were joined by his five siblings and his father, along with Stella McCartney and artist Sam Taylor Wood.

Kate arrived outside St Pauls church in Knightsbridge yesterday in a black dress and fur stole, along with five inch Christian Louboutin shoes,whilst socialite Daphne Guinness turned up in a billowing cape from the designers 2002 collection.

The service ends a week of mourning for the designer, which saw a minutes silence at London Fashion Week in his honour, and Lady Gaga dedicating her performance at the Brit Awards to him.

McQueen hung himself at his Mayfair home earlier this month,following the death of his much-loved mother Joyce.

Wow, what an eventful night the Brit Awards were this year! in a night that saw Lily Allen ascending from the sky on a rocket, Liam Gallagher throwing his Brit award into the crowd and ex-Gucci boss turned producer Tom Ford presenting the award for best album,here are my outfit highlights of the night.

Special mention has to go to triple award winning act Lady Gaga who arrived wearing a three layer tribute to the french revolution, then whipped it off during a special performance of ‘Telephone’ and ‘Dance in the Dark’ to reveal an all over lace catsuit whilst playing a piano/guitar/keyboard hybrid which she has dubbed the ‘Gagatar’.Lady Gaga dedicated her performance to ‘Lee’- late fashion designer Alexander McQueen.

London Fashion Week

with one comment

This week sees the start of London Fashion Week (or London Fashion Week brought to you by Canon, to use it’s full name) and I personally cannot wait.I’m particulary looking forward to seeing 60’s inspired brand PPQ, Sienna Millers brand Twenty8Twelve,Burberry Prorsum as well as the usual wacky designs from design students at Central St. Martins.

However this years Fashion Week will have one noticeable absentee- British designer Alexander McQueen ,who last week took his own life after failing to cope with his mother passing away.McQueen was a truly inspirational designer, having won British Designer of the year an unprecedented 4 times.His death will no doubt cast a sombre mood over the week,where he was due to show his latest collection.On the day of his death, he was due to show at New York Fashion week.Since then,share reports have shown interest in Alexander McQueen clothes has skyrocketed and stores have been mobbed.Talk of an Alexander McQueen award has also been discussed at his former school. Central St Martins.

See the full list of what’s to come at LFW here and check back here throughout the week to see all the gossip!
