No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

On Alexander McQueen

I'm no fashion expert. I like what I like, I know the names and occasionally guffaw at the ludicrous extravagance of it all. But I also take a lot of pleasure in the artistry of the true originals - of which Alexander McQueen was one. Young, brash and bold, he dressed the bravest of Hollywood's fashionistas and a who's who of music royalty.

He died last week, resulting in a tide of speculation about the reasons behind his suicide. No matter the roots of his depression, fashion will be a paler place without him.
