Hats on parade for Isabella Blow's final farewell
Actors, socialites and friends from the fashion industry all turned out yesterday to say their final farewells to fashion stylist Isabella Blow. There was a show of hats and elaborate fascinators in the crowd of 250 guests who attended Blow's funeral held at Gloucester Cathedral in Gloucestershire. Among the mourners were Sophie Dahl, Alexander McQueen, Tara Palmer Tomkinson and actor Rupert Everett who read a tribute to the style diva. Blow passed away last week after taking weedkiller, the third time she had allegedly tried to take her own life. Her funeral was indeed a glamorous affair but I'm sure she wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
