After yesterday's tragic news about the death of fashion designer L'Wren Scott, tributes and tweets have flooded in from the fashion world and further afield. Statuesque, elegant, fun and talented, Scott had become a firm Fashion Week darling, showing her collections at intimate presentations in both London and New York. She was also known as a celebrity stylist, masterminding the red carpet wardrobes of stars from Nicole Kidman and Amy Adams to Penelope Cruz and Sarah Jessica Parker. All this from the lady who was rumoured to be designing Angelina Jolie's wedding dress.
However, Scott's most recent presentation, set to show during London Fashion Week in February, was cancelled at short notice, reportedly due to production issues, but speculatively due to unknown personal problems. The Medical Examiner is yet to determine a cause of death.
