Suicide: The Quiet Haunting
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Moonrise, 1884 Stanislaw Maslowski A little over two years ago, I went to the closet where I kept a hidden stash of pills, carefully packed them among my things into a small weekend suitcase, made reservations at an inn I had stayed at with my mother when I was a teenager and left for the beach town of my childhood without telling anyone. I was headed towards the place where I had had my happiest years, those golden, magical summers when I was young. So I could remember. I needed to face down something -- either do away with myself or do away with the suicidal notions that had followed me for many years. Take the pills or throw them away into the sea. Blindsided by a series of unexpected events sparked by my mother's passing, my underpinnings had been suddenly ripped away; what I had thought was a shored up foundation was washed away in a flood of unmanageable emotion. This was not depression but a reaction to circumstances that were out of my control. These circumstances had ...

When models and celebrities collide, it can seem like the stars have aligned to create the perfect, genetically-gifted couple. But you can have too much of a good thing.

Rolling Stones set to rock Glastonbury
Fox News - over 3 years
The sun was out on Saturday for Britain's world-renowned Glastonbury festival, drying the mud underfoot as tens of thousands waited for the first ever performance here by the Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger flew in by helicopter on Friday with his girlfriend, designer L'Wren Scott, ahead of the band's headline show on the Pyramid Stage, their first at Worthy Farm in five decades of performing. Hundreds of people heralded their arrival with a "Jumping Jack flashmob" in which they mimicked Jagger's trademark dance moves, while the frontman himself proudly tweeted a photo of the luxury yurt where he will be staying. Scott later tweeted a picture of the 69-year-old at the block 9 area, an apocalyptic spectacle of electronic dance music, sound and lights, and then a backstage shot of the Arctic Monkeys gig. Some 135,000 revellers have gathered on the sprawling 900-acre site in Somerset, southwest England, for the country's most popular celebration of music and performing arts. Now in its 4 ...

9 Celebrities Who Love Classic Cars
Business Insider - almost 4 years
The North American International Auto Show in January inspired the Inquisitive Guest to gaze back to the graceful vehicles of yesteryear. Bugattis. Duesenbergs. Hispano-Suizas (a favorite of this reporter). To fantasize about owning an elegantly restored classic with a glossy mirror paint job doesn’t cost a dime. But to purchase one and to have the engine purr on demand requires deep pockets indeed. And if you don’t happen to be gifted with a socket wrench—which, by the way, many A-listers aren’t—you must also hire a trusted mechanic for vigilant maintenance. So for most of us, and supermodel Karolina Kurkova and Her Royal Highness Princess Firyal of Jordan, when it comes to vintage, there really is no DIY. To find out what classic beauties stir the imaginations of actors, designers, and models, we attended heady events across the country, including the Golden Globes, the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala, the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars, ...

Alber Elbaz & Lancome Partner Up!
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Beauty collaborations are a dime a dozen these days, but we definitely let out a delightful squee when we heard the news about the latest team: Alber Elbaz and Lancôme. Parfait, non? Alber, of course, will join the French cosmetic brand during his spare time from his post as creative director at equally as French fashion brand Lanvin. Oh, and when he's not dressing Emma Stone. We're pretty excited about this one, since it's the Moroccan-born designer's first venture into the world of makeup. We're already envisioning dewy red lipstick and sleek liquid eyeliner... Fortunately, this isn't the first A-list fashion figure to partner with a beauty company. Karl Lagerfeld teamed up with Shu Uemura for a punchy holiday collection last year and Lancôme entered the game by teaming up with L'Wren Scott and then Olympia Le-Tan (the latter collection is out on Valentine's Day). You'll have to wait until June 15 to get your hands on Alber's makeup. Until then, enjoy Lancôme’s oh-s ...

Sarah Jessica Parker: I’m No Fashion Icon
People Magazine - over 4 years
Henry Lamb/Photowire/BEImages Sex and the City‘s Carrie Bradshaw is considered a fashion icon to many women, but the woman who played her says she doesn’t identify. “It’s not an identity that I … connect to. I’m grateful if anyone says anything kind, and if they say something less kind, I take that as a part of anyone talking about you at all,” Sarah Jessica Parker told PEOPLE on Wednesday night at the Barneys New York and Walt Disney Company ‘Electric Holiday’ launch. “It’s not how I think of myself and I think it’s probably the healthier approach.” Don’t get her wrong — the actress still appreciates a good outfit. “I love beautiful things,” she said, “and I’m privileged to borrow a beautiful dress. I feel really lucky and I genuinely enjoy it. I feel like [fashion] has a proper place in my life.” But let’s just say you won’t catch her in a tutu at the grocery store. “It’s just not a reality — not when you have three kids and you go to the market and there are hungry people at ...

L'Wren Scott Doesn't Take Style Tips From Mick Jagger
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The penthouse at the swanky Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City was totally transformed into a showroom space fit for a queen (queen L'Wren that is). On a balmy November afternoon, designer L'Wren Scott (and Mick Jagger's longtime girlfriend) hosted a presentation for her spring 2013 collection while also debuting her first eyewear line. The large room featured lush red carpets, embroidered chairs, red velvet cupcakes and of course, beautiful clothing and accessories (the designer is known for her sleek silhouettes and body-hugging dresses -- in fact she is rumored to be designing Angelina Jolie's wedding dress). In the midst of the extravaganza stood the designer herself busily talking to the press, fixing displays and fussing over her models. She was a vision in a long burgundy velvet dress that hugged her slim figure while her dark locks framed her flawless skin (she credits her glowing complexion to her three favorite beauty products: "Caudalie Beauty Elixir, Rodin sk ...

James Bond's Style Remains Timeless in 'Skyfall'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
NEW YORK — If he's particular enough to like his martini shaken not stirred, James Bond probably likes his trousers trim not tight. Same goes for the tuxedo that's formal and not fussy, and any sweater in his closet surely is cashmere and perfectly casual and cool. Although the superspy first appeared on-screen 50 years ago, he never wants to look out-of-date. Costume designer Jany Temime says her mantra for the wardrobe of the latest Bond film, "Skyfall," which opens Friday, was "iconic for 2012." It's like she was shopping for people she knows – even if they are fictional characters – instead of creating a wardrobe for a movie, she explains. "I didn't follow fashion, I followed the script. But I know these characters, and I know what he or she would wear and why. I really tried to ask, `What would that character really buy?'" Temime said. Suits, lots of them, and most by Tom Ford, were high on the list for Daniel Craig, who is taking his third turn as B ...

  • 2014
    Age 47
    As of December 2014, her website was still up, a repository of her collections, videos of fashion shows, and press clippings.
    More Details Hide Details She left her entire estate, estimated at about US $9 million, to her longtime companion, Mick Jagger.
    A final memorial was held for her friends on May 2, 2014, led by by Jagger and Randall Bambrough in New York City.
    More Details Hide Details In January 2015, it was announced that Mick Jagger created a three-year scholarship fund in her name for fashion design students at the London-based school, Central Saint Martins. The scholarship, which will begin in October 2015 will cover all the fees for one student each year, over the course of three years (through 2017). While Scott did not go to fashion design school and was self taught, she was friendly with the late head of the school's M.A. course director, Louise Wilson. They had met at the British Fashion Awards. In the weeks following her death, both her Banana Republic collection, and her higher priced line at Barneys were in demand and sold out. While the Banana Republic line offered a glimpse of how popular her designs could be at a more affordable price to the masses, it is unknown whether the potential will be realized, or if the company will continue on.
    A memorial in Utah on April 12, 2014 was led by her brother Randall Bambrough.
    More Details Hide Details Bambrough urged people to remember L'Wren "As a wonderful terrific person who was highly talented and had a very large heart and brought the best out in people.” Her estranged, adoptive sister Jan Shane was also in attendance. L'Wren Scott's ashes were buried next to her parents, Ivan and Lula Bambrough, near the family home in Ogden, Utah.
    After a long period of depression, Scott was found dead by her assistant at her apartment in Chelsea, Manhattan on March 17, 2014 when she discovered L'Wren hanging by the door handle with a scarf wound around her neck.
    More Details Hide Details The police reported that no note was found and there was no sign of foul play. The New York City Chief Medical Examiner determined Scott's manner and cause of death to be suicide by hanging. She was 49. Upon learning of her death Mick Jagger wrote on his website and on his official Facebook page: "I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her."
    The palette debuted at her 2014 Spring collection runway show at London Fashion Week.
    More Details Hide Details The palette sold for $68 at major retailers, and Sephora. "We both love fantasy, we love to create things, but we are both a stickler for details," said Brown, describing her friendship and collaboration with Scott.
    In February 2014, the London Fashion Week showing of her fall 2014 collection was canceled, citing delays in production.
    More Details Hide Details It was announced that the collection would be revealed via social media, and be presented in her Paris showroom to editors and retail buyers in March.

"I got to wear all the clothes we made, which was fun from our point of view — just switching around all the outfits every night in different places," said Jagger, to Women's Wear Daily. On working with friends, Scott told WWD: “The fact that you're close with someone or friends with them can be good and bad. It's good that you know their comfort levels, and how far you can push. But, at the same time, you need to avoid having too many emotions and feelings because you have to listen very carefully to their ideas. You have to make sure that your creation, your vision in tune with theirs,” she says. “Mick really has his own style, and he is quite opinionated about how he wants to look. At the end of the day, performer has to feel good in it. It's not you or I dancing and prancing out there.”
    In 2013, Scott collaborated with Banana Republic with an exclusive holiday collection including apparel and accessories for women.

Scott describes the Banana Republic collection ($16.50 to $198) as “feminine, sexy, rock-and-roll... and a little bit sparkly, too.” The collection was launched on December 5, with an opening attended by celebrities dressed in the clothing. Mick Jagger was also interviewed in support. She collaborated with celebrated makeup artist and brand Bobbi Brown to create "Bobbi loves L'Wren" Amnesia Rose palette of lip glosses, eye shadows and cheek color.
