L'Wren Scott's Death Ruled A Suicide By NYC Officials

Posted: Updated:

The New York City medical examiner's office announced Thursday that fashion designer L'Wren Scott's death was a suicide, AP reports. Scott died Monday morning in her NYC apartment.

Cathy Horyn, former fashion critic at The New York Times, remembered her longtime friend in an article Wednesday, recalling memories they shared and praising not only Scott's talent but also her "warmth and empathy," adding, "L'Wren was made from a softer clay."

Scott's partner Mick Jagger also released a tribute to Scott on his Facebook, revealing both his devastation and struggle to understand her death. "She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me," Jagger wrote. The Rolling Stones, who were on tour in Australia at the time of her death, have postponed the remainder of their shows.

The world has lost a great talent in the fashion industry, and our thoughts remain with her family and friends at this time.
