Sarah Jessica Parker Mourns Alexander McQueen


alexander-mcqueen-sarah-jessica-parkerAlexander McQueen was a favorite of Sarah Jessica Parker, dressing the actress frequently and accompanying the mother-of-three on red carpet events. After his death on Wednesday he expressed her devastation over losing her friend:

“I am shocked and overcome with grief upon learning about the untimely death of the quiet genius Alexander McQueen,” Parker said of the designer’s apparent suicide.  “My heart goes out to his family and all those who worked for and with him.”

Of his designs she says: “Every single inspired, original, lofty, whimsical, stunning, brilliant and jaw dropping detail was Alexander Mcqueen. There has never been anyone like him. And there simply never will be.”

Parker, who was recently appointed chief creative officer and president of Halston, also talks about McQueen’s future that was tragically cut short. “What is more devastating is that despite all his success thus far, creatively, critically and commercially, his greatest achievements lay ahead of him. The future would be whatever he hoped to make of it,” she says. “God speed Lee. It has been a privilege for all of us to know you. You will be indescribably missed.”
