Banks even agrees that McQueen was considered royalty in the fashion community and his passing in February was devastating. The Tyra Banks online editorial is a little odd but that’s what made Alexander McQueen a genius—his designs were nothing of the ordinary
“I feel like a queen whenever I wear his clothes (especially the stunning blue dress I wore for this shoot)! I hope that you like the royal tribute that André and I (and lil’ Gianni too!) put together for him! It’s old royal fashion meets new royal looks designed by fashion royalty. McQueen had a flare for the dramatic and a love for fantasy. I would like to think that he would have loved these photos.”-Tyra B.
