My heart just broke yesterday when the news came in that L'Wren Scott was found dead. You see, I absolutely adored her work, ADORED it. She had that rare combination of creating clothes that were tailored yet fluid. She understood a woman's body and a woman's needs. Ladylike yet sexy, using beautiful fabrics, rich colors and intricate embellishment. And my goodness she was tall, 6'3" to be exact. I loved that she owned that height, no slouching for this girl! I'm sad that most people didn't really know her work outside of red carpet gowns. I'm angry that most of the news outlets identified her as only "Mick Jagger's girlfriend" which she was, but that did not define her or give her credit for her successful career. Mostly I'm gutted that we lost such a great talent. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Here is a lovely tribute article by Sarah Mower at Vogue.com.
I'll leave you with one of my all time favorite L'Wren Scott gowns from Spring 2014.
