Remembering Alexander McQueen

Sarah Jessica Parker on her way into Alexander McQueen's memorial service yesterday in London.
Fashion columnist, Suzy Menkes, ended her eulogy by quoting Keats:

“Beauty is truth.  Truth beauty. 
That is all you know on earth.  And all you need to know”.

I wasn't always a fan of McQueen, but I think as his skills matured, his work softened - less severe like in his early years - and came into its own. Some of his pieces were just beautiful. Such a shame - hopefully he's in a better place now.

I had no idea this went on yesterday!! Sarah looks stunning though. Look at that little clutch she's holding on to... I wonder if it's an Alexander McQueen??

How wonderful is this post? He was such a visionary. I love this picture of SJP along with this quote. What isn't about being an artist and being troubled?
