A New York coroner confirmed Thursday morning that the death of famed designer L’Wren Scott was indeed a suicide by hanging in her Manhattan apartment. No note has been found.
The 47-year-old’s death continues to puzzle the fashion industry and those closest to her, including her longtime boyfriend Mick Jagger, who broke his silence about the devastating event yesterday: "I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way."
L’Wren’s close friend and former New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn penned a moving tribute about the designer yesterday for the Times, revealing that L’Wren’s label had been suffering from financial difficulties and that she was planning to announce the discontinuation of her label on Wednesday. A spokesperson for the brand declined to comment.
