Alexander McQueen was my favorite designer as well--his untimely death was a tragedy to the fashion world.

Jaw dropping and amazing. You even included the famous lobster claw shoes! I am stunned. Fantastic work--and wonderful photos, as always! Bravo!

McQueen was a huge loss to the world of fashion. He was a true artist no one can replace.
