The Daily Mail is reporting that Alexander McQueen committed suicide. The British paper says the designer was found dead at his flat in London, and is believed to have hung himself. His mother had died a few days earlier. A source at McQueen’s office confirmed the suicide, saying, “It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family.” Details of his death have not been released yet. McQueen, who was discovered by Isabella Blow, was extremely close to the fashion editor. Blow killed herself in 2007. We will update as we hear news.
This is upsetting! Although I have never really been a huge fan of McQueen, his demise is definitely a loss to the fashion industry. He made the skull scarf popular…
… and who will ever forget the 10″ heels that he sent models down the runway for his Spring/Summer 2010 collection?

With the NY Fashion Week going on, his presence will be sorely missed. Rest in peace, Alexander McQueen.
Here’s the Emma Watson interview for the Burberry S/S 2010 Campaign. Emma Watson is just adorable!
Emma Watson, the starlet from Harry Potter is the face for Burberry’s Spring/Summer 2010’s ad campaign. I think she is a great choice as she is young and refreshing, not to mention she is a Brit after all.The campaign was shot by Mario Testino and other models featured in the campaign include Max Hurd, George Craig, Matt Gilmour and Emma’s younger brother, Alex Watson. The shoot was styled by Burberry’s creative director, Christopher Bailey.
Here are pics from the ad campaign…
I have loved Burberry for a long time for none other than their classic trench coats. Last year, a close friend of mine told me that she wanted to gift one to me for Xmas 2008 but decided otherwise after seeing the price (hah! I have expensive taste is all I have to say). Nonetheless, I appreciate her kind thoughts of even thinking of gifting a Burberry trench to me. For now, I have plenty of pics to drool at with Emma Watson as the face of the campaign looking stylishly chic in the trench coats. Ahh.. maybe someday!

This dress would definitely make one pretty wedding dress! Anyone with wedding bells around the corner? Heh. I know most definitely not me!
