The New York Daily News is reporting that L’Wren Scott, fashion designer, former model, and longtime girlfriend to Mick Jagger, was found dead on Monday morning in her Manhattan apartment. Officials are saying her assistant found Scott hanging from a scarf on a doorknob around 10 a.m.
The assistant told police that Scott, 49, had sent her a text at 8:30 a.m. prompting her to come over and when she arrived she found the body. There was no suicide note and no evidence of foul play. In February Scott announced that her London Fashion Week show was canceled.
L’Wren and Mick Jagger met in 2001. When she was a model she posed for brands like Chanel but then moved to California to pursue her true dream of being a stylist and designer. Celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Nicole Kidman have all worn her gowns on the red carpets. She also designed costumes for movies like Ocean’s Thirteen and Eyes Wide Shut.
