Fashion Icons Mourn Alexander McQueen In London

September 20th, 2010 // Leave a Comment

The fashion elite congregated in London today to pay tribute to the late designer Alexander McQueen at a private memorial service at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

The service was led by Vogue editor Anna Wintour who called McQueen a ‘complex and gifted young man.’

“As a child he loved nothing more than sitting on the roof top and watching the birds fly by,” Wintour said. “His final collection was a battle between dark and light. His was an 18-year career of harnessing his dreams and demons. He showed us everything was possible, dreams could be come reality. But he left us with an even more exceptional legacy, a talent that soared like the birds of his childhood above us all.”

Bjork appeared to perform “Gloomy Sunday,” dressed as a McQueen angel.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Stella McCartney were all there to pay their respects and shed tears during the service, an onlooker tells UsMagazine.com.
