L’wren Scott will be remembered for all her achievements in the world of fashion. Her glittering career started as a model – she first strutted the catwalk for Chanel, then became a highly demanded celebrity stylist and eventually became a glamorous fashion designer.
As a highly influential celebrity stylist, she dressed Madonna and Julia Roberts among many others. So it was no surprise that when she became a fashion designer, she designed for the stars. L’wren’s gowns have made their way across red carpets everywhere. Her designs are known for their elegance, sexiness and comfort. She had a talent for taking classic themes and turning them into modern timeless pieces.
Nicole Kidman has worn many of L’wren’s designs to the Academy Awards ceremony, Canne Film Festival and movie premiers. Nicole was an early fan of Lwren’s designs and the two have been close friends for 25 years. For the 2008 Academy Awards, Nicole wore an extravagant necklace designed by L’wren, featuring 7,645 diamonds and 1,400 carats in total.
Sarah Jessica Parker was also a huge fan. “’I think L’Wren has an extraordinary ability to make dresses that genuinely flatter a woman. She makes an unbelievably contemporary dress in a remarkably old-fashioned way for all sorts of women and body types”, said Parker. At the 29th Annual Fashion Night of Stars, Sarah Jessica Parker stayed true to her Sex and the City character, wearing a multicoloured L’wren Scott dress and black Manolo Blahnik heels.
Oprah Winfrey waved a final goodbye to all her viewers on her finale show wearing a custom made L’wen Scott silk dress. The dress was elegant with a flattering neckline and modest length sleeves. Oprah wore it with nude peep toe heels, diamond drop earrings and a very dramatic diamond bracelet, looking glamorous and picture-perfect.
When L’wren started designing, her first collection introduced her well known Headmistress dress, which was her portrayal of the little black dress. The Headmistress is a favourite of Madonna’s. A classy, sexy and flattering little black dress. L’wren’s tip was to “wear nude shoes with a little black dress if you want your legs to look longer”. A great tip for all those ladies out there. However, as much as we try, we will probably never be able to replicate those sexy long 42 inch legs that L’wren Scott was blessed with.
