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.

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.

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

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2582815/Mick-Jaggers-girlfriend-designer-LWren-Scott-commits-suicide.html#ixzz2wF2brj6R

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.

Yes, very sad. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

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.

“She was 6’4”.”

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...

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.

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.

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.

She would hardly have texted her assistant to come over and find the body if that were the case.

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.
