Alexander McQueen, R.I.P.

Terrible news at the loss of Alexander McQueen, a truly great designer, and worse yet for the implication something had gone terribly wrong in the man's life.

Fashion designer Alexander McQueen killed himself yesterday, devastated by the death of his beloved mother. So distraught was the 40-year-old that he had locked himself away, refusing to get out of bed since her death ten days ago.

McQueen, the controversial creative genius who clothed the world's biggest stars, was found hanged at his £2million Mayfair apartment on the eve of his mother Joyce's funeral.
