Fashion designer and Mick Jagger’s girlfriend, L’Wren Scott, commits suicide
BREAKING. Fashion designer L’Wren Scott has been found dead after hanging herself in her New York apartment this morning. L’Wren has been known, of late, as being the girlfriend of Mick Jagger. A spokesman for the Rolling Stones singer said he was: “completely shocked and devastated” at the news.
The designer was reportedly found by her assistant. There’s no suspicion of foul play, although newsrooms await the Medical Examiner’s report.

In 2013, Scott collaborated with Banana Republic, appearing advertisements alongside the models.
When she was younger, L’Wren moved to Paris where she worked alongside Thierry Mugler and Chanel, before making the move to California where she worked as a stylist with Karl Lagerfeld. L’Wren also styled costumes for movies such as Ocean’s Thirteen, Eyes Wide Shut and the Stones documentary, Shine a Light, by Martin Scorsese.
Christina Hendricks and Oprah Winfrey have both been seen in Scott’s clothes and Penelope Cruz and Amy Adams wore L’Wren Scott gowns at the Oscars.
Scott’s body was found in New York while The Rolling Stones arrived arrive in Perth in the middle of their world tour.
