    I love the silhouette in most of her gowns and dresses and her designs celebrates the female form unlike some designers. Rest in peace, L'Wren.

    What's most disappointing today, though, is that almost every media source is leading with "Mick Jagger's girlfriend." She's been far more relevant that he has over the past few years.

  • Oh my God, that's awful.

  • Sean

    The rumors of her having problems have circulated for months. Very sad that she couldn't or wouldn't get the help she needed.

  • BWeaves

    Hanging by a scarf tied to a doorknob? How tall are her doors?

    Also, I just found out David Brenner died. I always loved his comedy.

    Seriously to which sentence?

  • Pam

    The first one. I thought it was a tacky thing to write.

  • BWeaves

    You are right. It does sound insensitive. I didn't mean it that way. I just am not sure if what they wrote in the article was correct. It seemed weird.
