Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss and Anna Wintour were among the guests at Alexander McQueen's memorial service today (20.09.10).

The stars paid tribute to the British designer - who took his life on the eve of his mother's funeral in February - alongside family and friends at London's St Paul's Cathedral.

Reverend Canon Giles Fraser opened the ceremony with a tribute to the iconic designer, saying: "It was a life lived in the public gaze, but it was as vulnerable and retiring as it was glamorous. Despite the dazzle of his world, he never forgot his East End roots and how much he owed to his loved ones."

Singer Bjork and a Scottish piper playing 'Braveheart' accompanied the emotional service with music.

The 40-year-old designer - real name Lee McQueen - was named British designer of the year four times between 1996 and 2003 and was also awarded the CBE for his work in The Fashion industry.

He was discovered hanged dead in the wardrobe of his flat in London's upmarket Mayfair district after taking a cocktail of cocaine, sleeping pills and tranquilisers.

At the time, CHANEL designer Karl Lagerfeld said: "I found his work very interesting and never banal. There was always some attraction to death, his designs were sometimes dehumanised. Who knows, perhaps after flirting with death too often, death attracts you."
