Rest in Peace.  
The fashion world has lost and amazing designer with the passing of Alexander McQueen. I am really just gathering my thoughts at the moment. Augh. He's only 40. I was planning on doing a proper post but I really can't manage that right now. Anyone up for it please post your favorite McQueen design here. Most of America is familiar with him through his works for Lady GaGa:

I'm just hearing about this now.

It's soo tragic. D:

Adam LOVED Alexander McQueen's stuff.

Those awesome nucklerings he wore to the AMAs were McQueen.

I was shocked too! They are saying he took his own life and I just can't believe it. He was such a gifted designer.

Yeah. I was trying not to speculate but I am pretty sure it was suicide. He lost his mother on February 2nd.

A real loss. Both Gaga and Adam were fans of his work too.

I was shocked when I read about this, even moreso when I discovered it was a suicide. I've been a fan of his since I was 13 or 14.

Oh wow. This must be incredibly hard for you. The fact that he was found hanging really got at me too.
