The birthday of our blog Eye Candies has very special meaning to me.

It is mostly because of the number 7 - which is my lucky eye candy.

I also feel special affection for this number because of the fortunate choices in my life concerning 7.

The date of our blog birthday has also a more global and widespread meaning... Why?? Because on Tuesday 7th December 2010, Lee Alexander McQueen received posthumous Outstanding Achievement Award at the British Fashion Awards 2010 ceremony.

No need to comment about his artistry and contribution to the real concept of global fashion - we are already acquainted with that. Having been the most innovative and influential fashion designer of his generation, he won't let us forget ...

BFC chairman Harold Tillman, CBE, said: "The Outstanding Achievement Award celebrates the exceptional talent of an individual who has contributed to the British fashion industry both internationally, and here in the UK throughout their career.

There was only one person we felt we could recognise with this award this year - Lee McQueen."

The movie opening the ceremony was the tribute to Alexander McQueen and his most iconic pieces. This art video has a very expressive strong impact to the outstanding designs surrounded by the charismatic voice of Bjork. It is also a token of esteem for McQueen to be paid well – a well deserved tribute.

Speaking about the inspiration for the film, director Nick Knight, commented: "This film is my way of speaking about a very unique and important person who changed my life. My desire was to speak in some way about the dark and the light contained within Lee, and within us all."

Celebrate  the breathtaking imagination and groundbreaking designs of Lee Alexander McQueen. The latest fashion film by Nick Knight pays tribute to McQueen's sensational creations, stellar career, and most importantly to the man himself.
