Oh my...it's really a sad news right before the Tiger year.

Can't believe he will commit suicide...=(

It is very sad...a talent lost to the world. His SS2010 women's collection was hauntingly beautiful.

My eyes r wet with tears whenever i see his photos and hear his name now...

Life's really so unpredictable.

The lost of a great talented designer. The lost of inspirational art and design. The lost of the brand's originality. Alexander McQueen collections would never be as awesome as this anymore. R.I.P Lee McQueen.

This is tragic - you're right about his SS2010 and understandably he was distraught over his mother dying and the obvious pressure to out-do himself over and over. It's overwhelming to think of the pressure he was under and even sadder to know that he felt he couldn't handle it. A serious loss to fashion.
