Such tragic news in the fashion world today. Designer L'Wren Scott was found dead of an apparent suicide in her New York City apartment this morning. At around 10 a.m., Scott's assistant arrived at the former model's apartment and found Scott hanging from a doorknob by a black satin scarf, as reported by the New York Post. Scott and Mick Jagger have dated since 2001, and by all reports, the Rolling Stones singer is "completely shocked and devastated" by the news.
