Fashion designer L'Wren Scott was found dead today in her Manhattan apartment of an apparent suicide, according to New York police. She was 47 years old.

According to authorities, police were called to her Chelsea apartment at 10:05 a.m. and found her body. A medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

Scott was a renowned stylist and fashion designer whose clothes have been worn by A-listers including Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie and Penelope Cruz. In February, she announced that she had canceled her London Fashion Week show.

In addition to her career in fashion, Scott had been romantically linked to Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger for more than a decade.

Jagger is currently on tour with his band, and recently arrived in Australia.

"Looking forward to the first show in Perth," he tweeted just four hours ago.

A spokesperson for Mick Jagger tells ABC News that the singer is completely shocked and devastated by the news.
