The Young Alexander McQueen
As a big admirer of McQueen, I am very saddened over this tragic news.
London, England (CNN) -- The world of fashion paid tribute to top designer Alexander McQueen Thursday after he was found dead in his London home.
The designer, born Lee McQueen, had a reputation for controversy that earned him the titles "enfant terrible" and "the hooligan of English fashion."
Asked about reports of McQueen's death, London's Metropolitan Police said a 40-year-old man was found dead at an address in Green Street, central London.
They would not confirm his identity, and said the death was not being treated as suspicious.
