Yesterday, the Fashion and music world was simultaneously struck when news of designer L’Wren Scott’s passing came to light. The 49-year-old girlfriend of Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger took her life by hanging herself from a doorknob, proving that though women in her position may have fame and fortune, celebrities are not without their inner demons, either. Unfortunately, Miss Scott is just one Hollywood starlet who wasn’t able to overcome her trials and tribulations and committed suicide by hanging herself.  We remember those members of the entertainment industry who departed the same way here.

L’Wren Scott

By the time she was 12 years old, L’Wren Scott stood six feet tall. Encouraged to become a fashion model after high school, the long-legged beauty went on to work for Chanel before becoming a stylist in the early 90’s. After making a name for herself, Scott launched her own label in 2006 and has dressed a host of A-list celebrities including Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Scott, who was Mick Jagger’s girlfriend for over a decade, hung herself and was found by her assistant inside of her Chelsea apartment Monday, March 17.
