The tragic news of fashion designer L'Wren Scott's death on Monday, March 17 was tragic and shocking news. It is sad of how someone so talented can be going through such inner turmoil.
Sadly, it is also a reminder of how the late designer Alexander McQueen died, right at the height of his career.
Scott was a favorite of many A-list celebrities, including actresses Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Angelina Jolie, and Amy Adams as well as Madonna and even Oprah. There was also a lingering rumor that Jolie asked Scott to design her wedding dress to actor/fiancee Brad Pitt.
One of Scott's most memorable designs was the beautiful purple gown Oprah wore on her farewell tribute concert at the United Center in Chicago in May 2011.
Scott made thousands of spectacular designs, which really celebrated a women's curves and embraced femininity. Though it is tragic to hear about her passing, her designs and masterpieces will live on.
