L’Wren Scott knows how to dress a woman: Keep it timeless, make the silhouette sexy, and don’t pay fleeting trends any mind. A former model, Scott got her start in fashion design by talking to the craftspeople who created the couture that she wore down the runways. After modeling she became a stylist, working with legendary fashion photographer Herb Ritts and consulting celebrities such as Nicole Kidman. Scott spent the aughts finding romance — her longtime partner is Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger — and turning her label into one of the most sought-after in the world. Standout Scott designs include a wool tuxedo trench, lacquered tweed gowns, sequined cardigans, slinky sheath dresses, and a sleek eel skin pochette done up in gold — but really, we love them all. In 2012 Scott applied her ultra-feminine aesthetic to her first resort collection, which features fun prints and 1940s-inspired details. No wonder Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Madonna, and other fashion-forward A-listers are huge L’Wren Scott fans.
