Today (Mar. 17), the fashion world lost L’Wren Scott–a groundbreaking designer and longtime girlfriend of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. The former model wasfound in her NYC apartment hanging from a scarf on her doorknob and with no signs of foul play or a note, coroners will determine if her death was by suicide once an autopsy is performed.
Scott began her career as a model but crossed over to the behind-the-scenes aspect years later to create designs for A-listers. Her most recent work included a limited edition line with Banana Republic that sold out rather quickly. Hollywood is stunned to hear of Scott’s death as the designer seemed to be happy in both her personal and professional life.
A spokesperson for the Rolling Stones said the group’s frontman is “completely shocked and devestated by the news,” while Banana Republic—among others—also tweeted, “stunned and saddened to learn the loss of L’Wren Scott. Our hearts and prayers go out to her friends and family.”
Her contribution to the fashion world will be missed, but never forgotten. Check out celebrities that can be seen rocking her designs.
