Between the Galliano saga, the rumors that Pilati will leave YSL, and the sad rumor that Decarnin was a no show at the Balmain show because he was in a mental hospital, I have no clue what to think about Paris Fashion Week Fall 2011. Everything has gone crazing. Paris is truly burning. I had a small bit of time to look at the recent shows, which really means I looked at them around midnight when I should have been in bed. Here are some that caught my eye.

This is Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation! This is Madonna’s Vogue and Express Yourself! This is what Christina was trying to do with that awful awful video! This is so much and more and then some more. Loved it! Probably not safe for work.

Lee Alexander McQueen, 17 March 1969 – 11 February 2010
I am crying right now. I am totally beside myself with grief. Why? According to the London Daily Mail
Alexander McQueen, aka one of my fashion designer idols, is dead. He committed suicide and his body was found today. I am crying right now. I always thought that one day I would get to meet this tailoring genius. I know he was extremely upset at the passing of his mother last week. My mother always says it takes a very strong person to kill oneself. I just wished he could have pushed through the pain, but you never truly know what he was going through. I hope we can all remember him for the great things that he has done during his time on Earth. Let us think of the time he sent a hologram of Kate Moss down the runway. Let us think of the time he put a model on turntable and spray painted her dress with robotic arms, and let us not forget his beautiful Spring 2010 show from last fall. You will be missed.
McQueen is Dead! Long LIVE McQueen!
