Fashion Designer Alexander McQueen, Dead at 40

Mcqueen  Fashion legend Alexander McQueen was found dead in his London home dead of an apparent suicide. He was 40 years old.


The cause of death is reportedly hanging, and occurs days after McQueen's own mother passed away.

McQueen rose fairly recently from obscurity to international renown. He has been sighted as the number one influence for Project Runway winner Christian Siriano, who got his start working for McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. McQueen has also been a big inspiration for MamaPop patron saint Lady Gaga:

The writers of MamaPop have poked fun at McQueen's outlandish "hoof shoes", but there is no denying that he was a talented designer with a unique point of view, and his absence from the fashion world is an incredible loss. There is no news what will become of McQueen's fashion house, as the company has offered no comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family. 

We at MamaPop also extend our sympathies to McQueen's friends and family.

Wow - that's really sad. I actually really liked his hoof shoes. I hope his family and friends are weathering the double sadness they are feeling today.

Awe, man.

That is just sad.

Truly tragic. He must have been so tortured to make that decision.

This is incredibly tragic. The man was very talented. I'll never look at hoof shoes or asymetrical kilts again without thinking of him.

I always hoped to save my pennies and own one of his gowns one day. A truly creative person lost. I hate to think how bleak things must have seemed for him to commit such a final act.

Instead we are left with whiners who never do anything. So many people complaining about the snow. Yesterday my neighbors went out and started shoveling the street themselves. Good hearted problem solvers.

Whenever such a spirit leaves, you're always left thinking, "Yeah...but we still have.....(fill in your own personal bete noir.)
