Just breaking this morning, was the very sad news that incredibly talented 40 year old fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead at his London home. Early news reports say the designer took his own life in an apparent suicide. In 2007, one of his dearest friends and mentors, style icon, Isabella Blow, took her own life, impacting him greatly. And his mother just recently passed away on February 2.
