Celebrities Turn Out For Memorial Service For Designer L’Wren Scott
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Family, friends, and many from the world of fashion came out Friday to remember designed L’Wren Scott, the longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger.
Jagger himself was in attendance at the service at St. Bartholomew’s Church, 325 Park Ave. He sang Bob Dylan’s “Just Like a Woman” at the celebrity-filled service.
The service included words of tribute from Jagger as well as Scott’s brother, Randy Bambrough; her good friend actress Ellen Barkin; fashion personality Andre Leon Talley; and actress Sarah Jessica Parker, according to a statement from Jagger’s publicist Vicki Scarfone.
Poems were shared by Scott’s niece, Hannah Bambrough, and Jagger’s son, James Jagger. The Rolling Stones rocker’s grandchildren, Mazie and Zak, read Psalm 23. Besides Jagger’s rendition of the Dylan song, his longtime backup singer Lisa Fischer sang “Amazing Grace.”
The service was followed by a reception.
Scores of other celebrities — including Meg Ryan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Renee Zellweger, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, film director Baz Luhrmann, and Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter — were also in attendance.
Scott, 49, committed suicide in March. Her body was found in her Chelsea apartment, kneeling with a scarf wrapped around her neck that had been tied to the handle of a French door, police said at the time.
The designer had texted her assistant 90 minutes before she was found dead, and asked her to come to her apartment but didn’t say why.
A small private funeral was held for Scott in Los Angeles in March.
Scott left her entire estate to Jagger.
