Celebrities remember L’Wren Scott

After the sad announcement of L’Wren Scott’s death, celebrities, many of whom friends of the designer, did not delay to pay homage and remember the beautiful Scott.L'Wren Scott and friends

Anna Wintour said in a statement : “L’Wren was a total perfectionist, someone who absolutely embodied everything her marvelous clothes stood for: strength of character combined with a confident and powerful style.In person, L’Wren was always unbelievably generous, gracious, kind, and so much fun. Her old world American manners and charm were from another time, but her sensibility was always fiercely modern. We will all miss her.”

Los Angeles-based veteran stylist Deborah Waknin said of Scott: “She was one of the most entertaining and fun stylists I’ve had the opportunity to know and we had a great relationship. I’ve worked with her designs and her team for several of my celebrity clients. She was the best. She was from the same era of me, Phillip Bloch and Jessica Paster. We were the forerunners of this celebrity stylist thing. I started working with Herb Ritts because she recommended me to him. She had the most sough-after life and career and it’s just devastating. It breaks my heart.”

Madonna said of Scott: “This is a horrible and tragic loss. I’m so upset. I loved L’Wrens work and she was always so generous with me.”

Stylist Jessica Paster said: “She was awesome. She was a nice women and she always reached out; it’s just so sad. We all started at the same time. She was more than just a stylist — she was a designer, she had vision. Stylists like her and Arianne Phillips and B. Akerlund paved the way and opened the doors for stylists so we could be collaborators and designers and more than people who put a nude pump on an actress.”

Philip Bloch said, “She is gone but not forgotten. We started together as models in the Eighties for Gaultier and Galliano. Then we came to Hollywood around the same time. I had reconnected with her because I had to get some Hervé Léger dresses and somehow I got referred to her.Here’s the thing, she was one of the few who had the connections outside of L.A. so we often shared clients like Cindy Crawford, Nicole Kidman and Mariah Carey. She was just ahead of the game. I used to call her the dominatrix of styling. She would come with just three dresses and say, ‘You are not wearing these two, you are just wearing that one.’ She had that discipline and that eye. She was otherworldly, like ‘Mad Men’ before it was chic. She had that Fifties elegance to her. Ironically, last week I said to three different people, ‘I wish I had her life, look at her life. She’s always somewhere fabulous and fancy.’ You think, here’s someone who has it all. You just never know. I’m very saddened.”

Sarah Jessica Parker said, “She was one who seemed to come naturally to joy. She was a joyous participant, a planner. She really enjoyed company and occasions. There was a delight to her that is hard to imagine extinguished. She didn’t reveal another side to me but of course… we are all complex as human beings and I wouldn’t have claimed to be privy to that other part of late. She had discipline, skill and talent and the recognition was an enormous source of pride for her because she waited so long and worked so diligently (on her career).She was a rare beauty and enjoyed being singular in a lot of ways,” Parker added. “She will be genuinely missed in ways I can’t even comprehend today. For those closest to her, sympathies are not enough. May she rest in peace, free of any worries.”

Stephen Jones said: “It was with great sadness today that I learnt the death of my dear friend L’Wren, whom I have known since we first worked together at Thierry Mugler in Paris in the mid 1980’s. We later became firm friends during her time in Hollywood at Vanity Fair and as fashion stylist to the Oscars.Recently we have had tremendous fun, each season collaborating on her own collections, exploring another fashion adventure be it Tuxedo Terrace, Tea-Time or my personal favourite, Yorkshire Pudding. L’Wren’s sense of dramatic glamour, long-limbed elegance and pizazz was celebrated in an exhibition we launched in Qatar last November. She dazzled her fans with her charming vivacity as much as her exquisitely embroidered dresses. I am proud to have known her and have been able to call her one of my closest friends.”
