Lee Alexander McQueen has found his final resting place. According to WWD, the designer's ashes were buried at Kilmuir, on the Isle of Skye, in Scotland, on May 29. "Lee cherished the times that he was able to spend on the Isle of Skye—he enjoyed the beauty, peace and tranquility. It was Lee's final request that his ashes should be buried at Kilmuir,” said a statement from the McQueen family. [WWD]
