Alexander McQueen Memorial

Fashion's royalty paid their last respects to the late designer Alexander McQueen  in an incredible parade of his creations.
Supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss joined actress Sarah Jessica Parker, designer Stella McCartney and American Vogue editor Anna Wintour for the moving ceremony at St Paul's Cathedral in London.

Anna Wintour; legendary editor of American Vogue, wore a coat embroidered with gold birds from McQueen's preview Spring/Summer 2011Collection, the first under the full control of the label's new creative director, Sarah Burton(who surprisingly is not related to Tim Burton.)

One of Alexander McQueen's long-time muses, heiress Daphne Guinness, wore a vintage McQueen dress with teeteringly high black platform boots from his Autumn/Winter 09 collection

Sarah Jessica Parker wore a black frocked coat from the preview Spring/Summer 2011 collection with buckled stilettos and a clutch bag from A/W 10

Kate Moss teamed a leather dress from McQueen's Spring/Summer 2008 collection with an Yves Saint Laurent smoking jacket and Louboutin stilettoes - despite the fact that Alexander preferred his clothes 'pure', never mixed with other designers. Moss was a close friend and muse of McQueen for more than a decade
