(MENAFN -Khaleej Times) mick jagger?s girlfriend, fashion designer l?wren scott remembered by celebrity friends

L’wren scott, american fashion designer to the stars and long-time girlfriend of rolling stones frontman mick jagger, was found dead at her new york apartment on monday. jagger, 70, was “completely shocked and devastated” by the death of the 49-year-old scott, a spokesman for the rocker said. according to us media, the former model was found hanged. scott had dated the rolling stones frontman since 2001 following his split from his second wife, texan model jerry hall.


Jagger’s first wife bianca led the outpouring of tributes from celebrities who spoke of a kind and talented woman whose death would leave a gaping hole in their lives.


“heartbroken to learn of the loss of the lovely and talented l’wren scott. my thoughts and prayers are with her family. may she rest in peace,” she wrote on twitter.


Pop superstar madonna — just one of the many high-profile, glamorous women who wore scott’s clothes — released a statement calling her death “a horrible and tragic loss”.


New york designer marc jacobs wrote: “rest in peace, l’wren scott. you’ll forever be missed.”


Famous for her relationship with jagger, scott was also a hugely successful designer whose body-hugging and figure-flattering dresses were loved by hollywood stars and first lady michelle obama alike.


In a relationship for well over a decade with jagger, scott had appeared to give the aging rocker a degree of romantic stabilty despite the couple’s 21-year age gap.


Before meeting scott, he had a multitude of affairs with models, singers and actresses, and has fathered seven children with four different women.


He twice married models — bianca and jerry hall — while other ex-lovers include singers marianne faithfull and carla bruni, who is now married to former french president nicolas sarkozy.


Born in utah, scott was adopted by mormons and worked in paris as a model before finding herself more interested in dress-making than walking the runway.


She moved to los angeles, where she began to work as a stylist and a costume designer for films before launching her own brand, now stocked in some of the world’s most exclusive shops.


Launched in 2006, she called her first collection little black dress, and then moved into shoes, handbags and eyewear, as well as collaborating on cosmetics with lancome in 2010.


Most recently, she collaborated with high-street fashion brand banana republic on apparel and accessories for women.


Just last month, scott cancelled her london fashion week show, due to reported production delays.


Also last month, makeup artist bobbi brown collaborated with scott on a cosmetics line called the bobbi brown x l’wren scott collection.


“i am devastated by the tragic news about l’wren,” brown said on her website. “she was a visionary designer who i very much enjoyed working with, but she was also smart and kind. my thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to her loved ones during this very sad time.”
