    If she was his right hand, she must be a good director...

    Big shoes to fill yes, but lets not forget she's been doing the Ready to wear for awhile with Lee,
    aswell as working at McQueen for 14 years so she was the only right person for the job, congratulations to her!

    Very appropriate choice. Though, I don't know much about her, I have faith in her.

    I wish her luck and I am rooting for her.
    I am sure there isn't anyone who knows the McQueen aesthetic better than her (other than him obviously).

    She seems the perfect - only possible ? - fit. I wish her luck as, as it was said, she has big shoes to fill. The making of next collection will be really stressful, I guess. I hope she delivers and that she won't be judged too severely.

    This is good news. It seems that she is the best candidate.

    I'm very pleased with this choice. I'm glad Gucci didn't choose some high publicity person.

    well at least it wasn't somebody so left-field like say with helmut lang. this just seems appropriate and she does indeed know mcqueen better than anybody.

    She was creative director on womenswear WHEN Lee was alive. Now she has been appointed as creative director of Alexander McQueen, the brand. I guess that means she will also be directing mens collections.
