A MEMORIAL service for Lee Alexander McQueen took place at 11am this morning in St Paul’s Cathedral.

Addresses were given by Anna Wintour, Shaun Leane (who described their relationship as like that of Bill Sykes and the Artful Dodger), Suzy Menkes and Annabelle Nielson, while Jonathan Akeroyd – ceo of Alexander McQueen – and Philip Treacy contributed to the prayers.

Bjork, dressed as an angel, gave a poignant and outstanding performance of Gloomy Sunday. The London Community Gospel Choir also performed and the congregation, which included Lee’s close friends and family as well as many of the fashion industry’s most recognised faces – including Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell – sang Amazing Grace, I Vow To Thee My Country and Jerusalem.
