@SusanG and @milla: - indeed on both counts. L'Wren did really look like a bright light in her own right and such beautiful clothes! It is said that she knew how to make a woman feel and look like a million bucks and knew an astounding amount of traditional dressmaking techniques that aren't often seen these days. But I do know that the fashion business is a tough one, as when I was young I worked on the edges of it as a printed fabric designer until I got burned out on both the industry and NYC. But back to the topic - so often, it's the most talented and beautiful that are hiding darkness of one sort or another. Again, we won't know. As it is, associates and clients are deeply shocked and heart-broken, not to mention her man. Supposedly Mick Jagger has arrived in Los Angeles on his way back to NYC and at least some of his adult children are joining him to start the sad process of arranging the funeral. Whatever one might think, on a human level to deal with funeral arrangements due to a sudden death while one is still in shock has to be one of life's hardest tasks. Even if one has people around one, as people in the public eye do. I know this for a fact - my aunt had to go through herself, a couple of times.. At least with a long illness relatives know the end is coming but even then it's still hard.
Usually I don't follow a lot of celebrity stories, but there's something about this one that's haunting. A beautiful soul driven to suicide, and those of us of a certain vintage basically grew up with the Rolling Stones music and were fans even though we knew they were bad boys LOL! But they're certainly not alone in that respect in the music biz.
