NEW YORK (Reuters) – Fashion designer L’Wren Scott, the girlfriend of Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, was found dead in her New York apartment on Monday from an apparent suicide, according to a law enforcement official.

Scott, 47, a former model whose timeless style, modern, classic and sexy fashions were favorites among A-List Hollywood stars such as Nicole Kidman, was found hanging from a scarf in her apartment in the morning.

Police confirmed that a female was found “unconscious and unresponsive” in an apartment building on 11th Avenue in Manhattan.
