Your morning fashion and beauty report: Celebs and fashionistas mourn Alexander McQueen during London Fashion Week

September 20, 2010 |  8:34 am



Anna Wintour gave a tribute at a private memorial service for the late Alexander McQueen at St. Paul's Cathedral in London on Monday, during London Fashion Week. "A complex and gifted young man," Wintour called the designer, who took his own life in February. Singer Bjork, dressed as a McQueen angel, sang "Gloomy Sunday" before a crowd of mourners that included supermodels (including Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss), designers (including Stella McCartney) and celebrity fans (including Sarah Jessica Parker) of McQueen and his work. [Us]  [Telegraph]

Gwen Stefani, one of the first celeb rockers to also design clothes, showed her L.A.M.B. collection at New York Fashion Week, with a big star-studded after-party that drew the likes of Kanye West and Susan Sarandon. Stefani claims that she is naturally lazy but passionate about both music and fashion. [WWD]

Kanye West also attended a small dinner L'Wren Scott threw after her show. Scott's beau, Mick Jagger, was there, along with his daughter, Jade, as well as the somewhat unlikely Charlie Rose (who is not a usual fixture at Fashion Week events, but who is friends with Scott.) [WWD]

Oprah Winfrey and Vera Wang have made some brides-to-be very happy. Fifty of them in the talk-show host's audience last week were given a White by Vera Wang for David's Bridal gown, plus a bunch of other goodies to help them have the weddings of their dreams. [Stylelite]

Hopping on the bridal bandwagon, E! has given the go-ahead to a new show called "Bridalplasty," in which brides-to-be will compete to win the plastic surgery procedure of their choice. [BellaSugar]

Mariah Carey will launch collections of scents, shoes and jewelery on HSN starting Nov. 29. [People]
