Sad news! American designer and Mick Jagger girlfriend L’Wren Scott has passed away. New York papers are reporting that Scott died from an apparent suicide by hanging in her Manhattan apartment early Monday morning. Scott, who collaborated with Banana Republic and Lancome in recent years, had enjoyed commercial success for her namesake line in addition to a longterm relationship with the Rolling Stones frontman. The designer cancelled her February show at London Fashion Week earlier this year, although there is no word yet on whether the designer was having a difficult time personally or professionally leading up to her death. No note was found at the scene.
Born Luann Bambrough and raised by adoptive parents in Utah, Scott later changed her name and made a huge splash in the fashion world. Mick Jagger is said to be “devastated” by the news. Our thoughts are with Scott’s friends, family and colleagues at this time. She will be missed within the fashion world, for sure!
