“L’Wren”? What kind of name is that?
Thank you mz. scott(whoever you are/were) for not taking a bunch of people with you.
L’Wren Scott dead: Fashion designer and Mick Jagger girlfriend found dead in apparent suicide
Her body, discovered hanging from a scarf tied to a doorknob in her apartment on 11th Avenue, was found by assistant after she received a text from Scott asking her to come over.
Scott also launched her fashion brand in 2006. Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman have all worn her gowns to the Academy Awards, while other high-profile names such as Reese Witherspoon, Christina Hendricks, Sandra Bullock and even First Lady Michelle Obama have been seen wearing her designs.
In February, she announced she had canceled her London Fashion Week show.
Wow, she was short!
How do you hang to death from a Door Knob?
Lemme guess,,, she was dying for a cheeseburger?
Was the scarf one of her designs, or that of aanother designer.
Maybe she found out Mick was cheating on her.
I don’t know the name, but it’s sad when anyone does this. I wonder what spawned the sense of hopelessness that led to it.
One pic of her looks very very thin.
Eating disorder combined with low self esteem.
She was 6’4”.
Such a terrible thing to be that miserable.
Vince Foster kicks box.
Mick Jagger’s girlfriend designer L’Wren Scott commits suicide
Scott, 49, was found dead on Monday morning when an assistant arrived at her Manhattan apartment
The designer had been in a relationship with Mick Jagger since 2001 but he was in Australia with the Rolling Stones at the time of her death
He is ‘completely shocked and devastated’ by the news
Spokesman said ‘of course’ they were still in a relationship at the time of her death
The designer had been especially busy of late too. At the end of last year, she designed a holiday collection for Banana Republic but last month she shocked the fashion set when she cancelled her London Fashion Week show at short notice. The designer blamed production delays in key show and couture pieces, according to WWD.
Tie it to the door knob on one side of the door, loop it over the top of the door and proceed as usual.
What hell her internal life must have been. Poor woman.
A lot of designers are manic depressives.
Poor woman. How sad.
Yes, very sad. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
Did she get “No Satisfaction” from Jagger? /sarc
Rest In Peace, Ms. Scott.
I’m not sure why this death should be any more noteworthy than the other 6500 or so that occur every day in the usa.
Ask Michael Hutchense (?) from INXS.
Guess she reached her beaking point.
Learn something every Day. Thanks
tie scarf around neck. bend over tie other end to door knob. Hunch down and twist into a sitting position. Sit down.
“She was 64.”
That makes it even tougher to hang yourself from a door knob.
Her with Jagar.
I find it hard to believe the hanging from a doorknob thing especially seeing how tall she was.
Just because you now know how it can be done is no excuse for you to try it to see if it works...
Great pic! Exceptional legs I’d say...
It’s really a shame. RIP
Well, I think the whole "lack of pulse / rigor mortis" issue adjusts my evaluation .
But of course, the whole situation is a shame - I hope Miss Scott finds peace, even in the midst of the great and horrible mistake she apparently made. Prayers out.
What a beautiful photo. I wouldn’t wish suicidal depression on my worst enemy. May she rest in peace.
Short for “Little Wren”?
It gets attention because it’s a window into the less-than-perfect world of the beautiful people. Usually their wealthy, glamorous, supposedly idyllic lives appear to operate outside of natural law, exempt from ordinary people’s troubles.
Poor woman. RIP.
Erotic asphyxiation, Happens all the time and she got caught doing it.
It seems a lot of people have been committing suicide in New York city ever since the fools there elected a hardcore blatant Marxist as Mayor. Am I right or what? Almost every day I read about another suicide in that city, especially in the financial district.
“was found by assistant after she received a text from Scott asking her to come over”
She would hardly have texted her assistant to come over and find the body if that were the case.
Her given name was Luann. Made an edit for style purposes, looks like.
If that was my crowd, suicide would be a real option
Her and Jagger had been together for about 12 years. He stated publicly he had no intention of marrying her.
The poor woman probably just wanted to be loved and, approaching 50, may have felt her dream would never come true.
Men kill themselves because they feel like failures. Women kill themselves because they feel no one loves them.
Just my personal opinion.
I thought it was a hipster version of Lauren. They gotta be different, you know.
“even First Lady Michelle Obama have been seen wearing her designs.”
Yep that can do it.
