There was a memorial service Monday at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London for designer Alexander McQueen, who sadly killed himself earlier this year. It looks like it was a fitting tribute–fashionistas turned out in McQueen’s designs, and Vogue‘s Anna Wintour spoke in tribute.
I could never, in a million years, wear shoes like these, but I thought SJP’s ensemble (at left) was adorable. I tend to go for more tailored looks, but it would be fun to be able to dress more romantically and theatrically sometimes. Living in small town Colorado means that I don’t get the opportunity to dress up very often. People don’t even dress for dinner in downtown Denver. I went to tea at the Brown Palace Hotel recently, and people were seated and served in jean short-shorts and tee-shirts! (Needless to say, Historiann and companion classed the place up with our summer frocks.)
I don’t often miss having long hair, but every once in a while when I see a ‘do like this, I’m nostalgic!
