Alexander McQueen, Dead at 40

Posted By on 02.11.10 at 12:32 PM

New York Fashion Week started off on a sad note with the news of the death of designer Alexander McQueen at the age of 40, apparently a suicide. His passing comes three years after the suicide of his good friend and supporter, eccentric fashion icon Isabella Blow. McQueen's passing heralds the end of their brand of pure, madcap joy in fashion.

In honor of them both, here's a link to one of my favorite fashion photographs of all time, "Burning Down the House" by David LaChapelle, from 1997.
