Long Live McQueen

Despite the recent loss of British designer Lee Alexander McQueen, his legacy of impeccable tailoring and outrageous designs lives on. My little sister's prom is only three weeks away! Being the little fashionista I've trained her to be, she insisted on none other than a McQueen dress. It was rather fitting that his last S/S line was doused with technicolour jellyfish and mermaid prints, as Nat loves the ocean. She will, however, be accessorizing the McQueen dress (on left) with a lovely bright blue cast that covers half her leg. Although the broken ankle is tragic, the chance to wear a McQueen dress is now, a once in a lifetime opportunity. 
McQueen has won British designer of the year four times and was even appointed Commander of the British Empire for his fashion leadership. Anna Wintour has even said that "his passing marks an insurmountable loss."His last collection shown was his mostly finished Fall 2010 line, that he completed before his death. The McQueen label may live on through the Gucci Group, but will never have the same charisma and obscurity that Lee was able to create.
