L'Wren Scott found hanging in New York home

L'Wren Scott has been found dead in her apartment.

The 47-year-old celebrated fashion designer - who was dating Rolling Stones star Sir Mick Jagger - was found hanging from a scarf on a doorknob in her home in Manhattan, New York, earlier today (03.17.14), police told the New York Daily News newspaper.

The body is said to have been found by her assistant at her 200 11th Avenue address at around 10 o'clock this morning and although it's been claimed that police do not suspect foul play, the Medical Examiner's Office will determine the cause of death.

L'Wren has previously spoken out about her hate for being referred to simply as Mick Jagger's girlfriend as she wanted to be recognized for her own talents, although she often used the rocker as her muse.

She said previously: "I'm a fashion designer. I don't want to be defined as someone's girlfriend.

"You always wonder if people will pay attention to the hard work that goes into what you do. And when you're taking something on your own, it's your company, your investment - your life."

The former model designed all of her 70-year-old boyfriend's outfits for the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary tour.
