L'Wren Scott, a New York City fashion designer and the girlfriend of legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, is dead. She was just 49 years old.

She was found this morning in her apartment by her assistant, according to the BBC.

Police are treating it as a suicide, though it's unclear why and the medical examiner has yet to determine an official cause of death as of this report.

A spokesman for Jagger, who turned 70 last year and dated Scott since 2001, said he was "completely shocked and devastated" by Scott's death.

Scott, born Luann Bambrough, was raised by adoptive parents in Utah.

She began her career as a model in Paris, then moved to L.A. to become a fashion stylist, according to a biography on her company's website.

UPDATE: New reports appear to have confirmed the tragic suicide, indicating that L'Wren Scott was found hanging by a scarf inside of her apartment.

The beauty attracted a host of famous fans including Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Obama, Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams and more over the years.

Just last month, Scott, who walked the Paris runways for Chanel and Thierry Mugler, canceled her London Fashion Week show due to production issues.

She founded her eponymous label in 2006.
