Fashiona pays tribute to Alexander McQueen

Fashiona had planned on starting her coverage of New York Fashion Week today and she will... but sadly with a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen that was found dead this morning.

Most of the time McQueen designs were bit outlandish for Fashiona's tastes but she absolutely admired his impeccable tailoring and flair for theatrics.

Alexander McQueen's early runway collections developed his reputation for controversy and shock and awe antics, earning the title "l'enfant terrible" and "the hooligan of English fashion."  McQueen was known for his lavish, unconventional runway shows.

McQueen always on the cutting edge became the first designer to participate in MAC's novel promotion: cosmetic collections created by fashion designers. The collection, McQueen, was released on 11 October 2007. The inspiration for the collection was the Elizabeth Taylor movie Cleopatra; McQueen handpicked the makeup.

McQueen was loved by celebs and fashionistas alike.   Both SJP and Cameron Diaz wearing two of  Fashiona's fav McQueen ensembles.
