The service for close friends and family for designer Alexander McQueen took place this morning in the U.K. and, based on images from outside the ceremony, it’s the best-dressed funeral ever. While that may seem like an odd thing to comment on in light of the tragic circumstances surrounding his death, given that McQueen dedicated his life to beauty, we can’t help but feel that it’s the sort of detail that would make a man like him happy. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: McQueen truly was a design force to be reckoned with and he will be missed.
Though today is his funeral, the fashion industry will say their final goodbye on March 9, when his show is staged in Paris. [Elle UK]
