The fashion world paid tribute today to Hollywood stylist and Fashion Editor Annabel Tollman, who died suddenly at home aged 39. Responsible for styling Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway and the Olsen twins, Tollman had been voted one of Hollywood’s top 25 most influential stylists – and created some of the most iconic red carpet looks of the last few years.
Tollman died at home in New York on Thursday night, apparently because of a blood clot following recent surgery. Almost immediately the fashion world took to social media to express their shock at the former Interview magazine Fashion Editor, who made the move into celebrity styling five years ago after styling Scarlett Johansson for the cover. Last night her family posted on her twitter account: ‘We thank you all for honoring our beloved Annabel. Her beauty, spirit & love will remain in our hearts. Love, Annabel's Family & Friends.’
Everyone from model Hilary Rhoda to designer L’Wren Scott also paid tribute to their friend and a fashion talent. ‘Sad news to hear the glamourous @AnnabelTollman RIP my beauty and glamour gal the ever chic and stylish always smiling and happy so special,’ wrote Scott.
Famous for her champagne blonde hair, vintage style and ability – in her own words – to dress ‘the most gamine and the most curvaceous bodies’ in Hollywood, she lived by a motto: ‘My whole way of thinking is, your life is almost like a movie, and you are costuming each day as you go.’ Click through the gallery above to see some of her greatest styling moments.
