Alexander McQueen's $26 Million Last Will and Testament Revealed.

The fashion world lost a legend when Alexander McQueen passed away in early 2010. But his awe-inspiring designs and fantastical imagination will forever live on in the clothes he designed and the people he touched. Aside from being incredibly talented, McQueen also had a big heart, and left $26 million in his last will and testament. Specific details were revealed on Tuesday.

The majority of the money was left to his Sarabande charity, with the request that it be used to fund scholarships and grants for Central Saint Martins students. Other recipients of tidy sums included the Terrence Higgins Trust; London Buddhist Center; McQueen's housekeepers and various relatives. Last, but not least, he ensured that his faithful dogs were well taken care of with a $82K trust and a $164K donation to the Blue Cross and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
