It's going to take me a while to fully digest this one. According to reports, British fashion mogul Lee (Alexander) McQueen was found dead this morning in his London home, after presumably taking his own life at the age of 40.
His secondary line, McQ, was set to debut at New York Fashion Week today but has been canceled. McQueen will forever be remembered for his innovative approach to fashion — one of his recent ads featured a model posing in a pile of slithering snakes — and unconventional runway tactics. Beloved by fashion-forward celebrities like Lady Gaga, Michelle Obama and Sarah Jessica Parker, McQueen also reached the masses last winter with the McQ Alexander McQueen for Target line.
Take a look back at some of Alexander McQueen's most popular celebrity looks.
