The funeral for Lee Alexander McQueen takes place this afternoon at St. Paul's Cathedral in Knightsbridge, London. Celebrities currently in attendance at the private family-and-friends ceremony include Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Daphne Guinness. McQueen hanged himself at his home in North London following the death of his mother the week prior. The police inquest revealed that he left behind a suicide note for his loved ones. [Mirror]
