Sex and the City beauty Sarah Jessica Parker teared-up Monday during a star-studded memorial service for British fashion designer Alexander McQueen in London, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
Wearing one of the designer’s collections SJP was joined by Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Stella McCartney and US Vogue editor Anna Wintour and hundreds of others for the memorial service at St. Paul’s Cathedral.
The award winning designer shocked the fashion world after he committed suicide at his flat in London last February. He was 40.
Many mourners chose to wear McQueen’s celebrated designs as a mark of respect while others made fashion statements of their own during the final tribute.
Kate Moss sported a leather pencil skirt, tuxedo jacket and Christian Louboutin heels while Naomi Campbell wore a flamboyant feather creation with gold high heel platform boots.
Parker looked more conservative in a black trench coat and white dress – flashes of McQueen’s trademark tartan were also on display as part of the tribute.
The designer’s body was found by his housekeeper at his Mayfair flat in London the day before the funeral of his mother Joyce.
An inquest into his death found that the designer hanged himself after taking a cocktail of cocaine sleeping pills and tranquillizers.
The fashion icon suffered from depression, anxiety and insomnia and had researched suicide on the internet before he took his own life.
The son of a London taxi driver and the youngest of six children McQueen rose to become one of the world’s top designers, winning a string of awards and heading his own prestigious fashion house.
His daring creations became favored by the rich and famous and several of his designs appeared in The Sex and the City movies also.
Stars Lady Gaga and Rihanna also favored McQueen’s often outrageous designs by showcasing them during concert performances.
