Scott, a former model whose slim-fitting, dresses were favorites among Hollywood’s A-list stars such as Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams and Penelope Cruz, was found hanging from a scarf. Police said they had preliminary information that Scott was 49, although that had not been confirmed by her family. Her death followed the untimely deaths of two giants in fashion who succumbed to suicide: British designer Alexander McQueen, who had suffered from depression, died in London in February 2010 at the age of 40, while his close friend, British fashion editor Isabella Blow, died in 2007 at the age of 48.
