Top celebrity fashion designer and former model L’Wren Scott has been reportedly found dead in her Manhattan apartment this morning. Her body was discovered by her assistant hanging from a scarf tied to a door knob.
L’Wren Scott has been romantically linked to the Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger since 2001. He is currently on tour in Australia at the moment and has not issued any official statement relating to the death of his girlfriend.
Scott had her first break in the fashion industry as a stylist before launching an eponymous line in 2006 that was a major hit with celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Kidman and Michelle Obama. Reports state that she had even been tipped to design Angelina Jolie’s wedding dress.
Scott had texted her assistant at 8:30 a.m. and asked that she come over, police sources said. When she arrived, she found the body and called 911. Police did not suspect foul play, a source reported, but the Medical Examiner’s Office will determine a cause of death. No suicide note was found.
