My boyfriend text me today telling me Alexander Mcqueen commited suicide. I just assumed it was some kind of awful, sick joke. Alas, the boy does not lie and Lee Mcqueen, the founder of Alexander Mcqueen is gone, forever! It's completely totally official, the Mcqueen website released a quote saying;
"On behalf of Lee McQueen's family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand has been found dead at his home. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee's family.
Lee's family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this."
Such a waste of a genius brain.
