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."

Hey! If someone had accused me of making some of those clothes Lady GaGa wears, heck, I'd probably do myself in too. By the way, what's up with these gays and lesbians biting the dust?

tsk tsk    

Here is yet another "fashion icon/celebrity" dead. While I am sorry for his family I think it is pitiful that a person gets so wrapped up in his life, the glamour and the almighty dollar that they truly dont have a clue about living a real life. His mom passes away and he cant grasp reality or even have a clue how to cope with it so he presumably takes his own life in despair.

Another fine example of how these rich folks dont even have a clue what the real world is about let alone how to cope with it. He made his fortune off being a fine designer and making people shine but when the dark cloud hit his world with his mom passing he takes the short runway and ends his life.

Money doesnt buy everything now, does it?
