>> Today, Alexander McQueen was laid to rest in London during a private funeral service encompassing close friends and family only, according to a spokeswoman — Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Steven Klein, Daphne Guinness, Edward Enninful, and Stella McCartney were among the approximately 100 mourners.
The congregation spent around an hour inside St. Paul's Church in Knightsbridge, west London, before the coffin, laden with pink, white and red roses, was carried out by four pallbearers and loaded into a waiting hearse with "Lee" in white flowers on the back. The hearse drove off, followed by two black stretch Jaguars carrying McQueen's family. One mourner said of the funeral: "It was a lovely service."
A memorial service open to friends and supporters will take place later this year, although no date or venue has been confirmed, she told WWD. “We are focusing right now on the Paris show," she noted, which will be by invitation in a "private salon" format on March 9 and 10 at an undisclosed location.
