L’Wren Scott was proof that anyone could become anything that they want to be.
She was adopted, and raised as Luann Bambrough, in Utah. At 12 years old she was already 6 ft tall so modelling was a natural choice. She left school at 18 and flew to Paris, changed her name and walked for Chanel. That is the real American dream right there.
In the early 90’s she went back to the US and established herself as a stylist, dressing A-listers and icons alike. Some of her most famous fans include Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman (a close friend of hers who has an apartment in the same block), Michelle Obama, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Naomi Campbell, Reese Witherspoon, Christina Hendricks,Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock and Uma Thurman.
A divorcee, she had been romantically involved with Mick Jagger since 2001 and he has spoken to his devastation over her death.
L’Wren is proof that being beautiful, thin, and rich is just not enough to live on. Those are plentiful things but to be loved, fulfilled and content are worth so much more.
Another bright star in the fashion sky gone too soon. So very sad for all those who loved and respected her.
