Backstage at Duckie Brown we got a first hand reaction to the shocking news about Alexander McQueen.

Hollywoodlife.com ran into Ugly Betty‘s Mark Indelicato backstage after the Duckie Brown fashion show on Feb. 11, where he opened up with us about the news of Alexander McQueen, “It really affects everyone, especially during Fashion Week – there are a lot of young designers who are coming out for the first time and his death is taking over,” he said. “It really mellows everyone out, it’s like when Michael Jackson died, how the music industry took a moment of silence — but it’s during Fashion Week.”

Mark also told us he’s busy finishing up school — and Ugly Betty. “As a cast know if we have to end, we have to end it right, and you know, there’s always time for a movie!”

Steven Cox, part of the design duo for Duckie Brown, said the news about Alexander McQueen was just horrible. “He was an incredible talent and a huge inspiration,” he said. “He was an amazing designer and we should all strive to do what he did.”
Steven said he thinks the late designer would want Fashion Week to go on, “Everyone has to carry on and I think if you spoke to him now he would want us to continue, he wouldn’t want us to stop.”

Steven also told us a little bit about what inspired his new collection,”This show is about England and the boys I went to school with,” he said. But, when we asked him to pick which celebrity would look best in the looks from his latest show he said, “Ed Norton! Ed Norton in American History X.”
