Fashion designer L'Wren Scott, who has been dating Mick Jagger since 2001
L'Wren Scott, a fashion designer and celebrity stylist who was Mick Jagger's girlfriend, was found dead Monday in Manhattan of an apparent suicide, according to law enforcement sources.
Scott, a 6-foot-3 49-year-old former model, was found inside an apartment in Chelsea Monday. A law enforcement official said her assistant found her hanging from a doorknob. No note was found and there was no sign of foul play.
A rep for Jagger said he is shocked and devastated.
According to the Rolling Stones' YouTube channel, the band landed in Australia Sunday to start a new leg of their tour.
Scott, a Utah native, first worked in Paris as a model and then moved to Los Angeles to become a stylist, her website says.
Her first collection launched in 2006, titled "Little Black Dress." She has dressed stars including Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Kidman, and designed the dress that Oprah Winfrey wore for her finale episode.

In a statement to E! News, Madonna called Scott's death "This is a horrible and tragic loss. I'm so upset. I loved L'Wren's work and she was always so generous with me."
Scott canceled her London Fashion Week show last month, due to reported production delays. (NBC/AP)
