While the fashion world mourns the passing of Alexander McQueen, MSNBC is sad that he won't be designing for Sarah Jessica Parker anymore. This is what sits on the MSNBC news homepage right now, and apparently designers are only worthwhile for the famous people they dress, rather than their actual work.
Seriously, MSNBC? The only thing you could think of to remember McQueen on your homepage is "Worked for Sarah Jessica Parker?!" And wrong choice of words, even. Now America will see this headline and think that her stylist or someone died, instead of the true creative genius that the world, and not just Ms. Parker, has lost today. R.I.P. Alexander McQueen; we truly hope that this is not how you're permanently remembered. [MSNBC]
