British designer Alexander McQueen passed away this morning — a great loss of a great talent. His accomplishments are written large across the face of modern beauty, and there's no chance his legacy will be fading away anytime soon. In tribute to an amazing life, I've put together 10 of his most amazing runway moments. Read on to see the man at his best.
