International fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead in his London home this morning, this according to a spokesperson for his company.

There are reports claiming McQueen took his own life -- but so far, an official cause of death has not been released.

The UK media organization, Sky News, is reporting that McQueen was found hanged in his apartment. Sky News also reports that local police have said the death would not be "treated as suspicious."

The 40-year-old designer often designed outfits for Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Prince Charles.

A rep from McQueen's office just released a statement saying, "At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with [McQueen's] family."

Every photo I've seen of him shows his eyes to have huge pupils. That is a sign of stimulant use, either coke or meth. I don't know if this guy was a drug user but it wouldn't shock me. I've known a few coke addicts that took their own life and hanging seems to be the prefered method. He was good friends with Kate Moss if that tells you anything. At any rate, it is sad and my heart goes out to his family.

Oh sure you go on and on about this guy but what about the Afghani orphans in Haiti? Who cares about them? And then Hank Baskett should just throw his hands up and say hell yeah? I DON'T THINK SO.

Why oh why do people take their lives...I know I know, but he had so much going for him. Hell he was to unveil his new collection in a few weeks in Paris. All the fashionisters and fabulous people are all hysterical on the news.
