R.I.P Isabella Blow

I've watched FT: Fashion Television since I was a little girl. I love it. Occasionally, during the segments in Europe at the fashion shows, they featured an eccentric English woman with heavy eye-lids and crazy, crazy hats. She would make comments on Galliano, McQueen and Gaultier, all out from underneath a truly crazy hat. That woman was Isabella Blow. She worked with Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley. She discovered Alexander McQueen and Sophie Dahl. And wore crazy hats. I love her. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the spring and had surgery two weeks ago. A long time sufferer of depression, there are reports she killed herself. She was an original.
