LAST SLIDE

Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, Daphne Guinness, and More Attend Alexander McQueen’s Memorial in London

This morning, St. Paul's Cathedral in London hosted a memorial service for Alexander McQueen, who took his own life on the first day of New York Fashion Week in February. Sarah Jessica Parker, Naomi Campbell, and Kate Moss were among the luminaries to turn out. Anna Wintour also attended, and gave an address, recalling McQueen's Dante collection of the late nineties, which included the famous "bumster" pants:

"One (model) turned to give me an extremely prominent close-up of her mostly naked back view," Wintour told a congregation of more than a thousand people. "Well, after that collection it was a done deal. Everybody lowered their trousers everywhere."


Björk performed, wearing angel wings and a silver helmet, and the service closed with a performance by a chorus of bagpipe players dressed in tartan kilts. See the celebrity attendees, dressed in their finest somber McQueen, in the slideshow.
