The McQueen logo [Gala Darling]
Yesterday, news broke that designer Alexander McQueen
took his own life. While McQueen started out as an enfant terrible
who purportedly once stitched “I am a c***” into the lining of a suit that he was making for Prince Charles, in more recent years he had become a cultural icon whose daring designs were worn by celebrities
on the red carpet: Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna, among others. Today, we take a look back at some of McQueen’s most outrageous, provocative, and beautiful works of art that just so happened to be wearable.
