Scores of L’Wren Scott’s friends and relatives turned out Friday night for a memorial service at St. Bartholomew’s Church in New York.
The designer’s partner, Mick Jagger, was among the first to arrive, slipping in a side entrance with his daughter Georgia May Jagger. Within minutes, fellow Rolling Stone Keith Richards and his wife, Patti Hansen, darted past, as did Ronnie Wood and his better half Sally Humphreys. Following their lead, Martin Scorsese also dodged the pack of photographers stationed behind a barricade on Park Avenue.
While commuters tried to make their way along the crowded sidewalk, guests like Julianne Moore, Meg Ryan, Olivia Munn, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lorne Michaels, Baz Luhrmann and Daphne Guinness were whisked up the church steps by security. Renee Zellweger, Karlie Kloss, John McEnroe and Tony Shafrazi were among the late arrivals.
The fashion industry and media world were well-represented, thanks to Anna Wintour, Francisco Costa, Glenda Bailey, Graydon Carter, Mark Lee, Simon Doonan, Daniella Vitale, Hamish Bowles, Cindi Leive, Ingrid Sischy, Sandy Brant, Steven Kolb, Famke Janssen, Ken Downing and Lizzie Tisch.
They were all there to pay tribute to Scott, who took her life on March 17 at the age of 49 in her New York apartment. In one of many emotionally charged moments, Jagger, after eulogizing Scott with touching stories of their years together, sang Bob Dylan’s “Just Like a Woman,” accompanied by piano.
Other speakers included Scott’s brother, Randy Bambrough, Ellen Barkin, Andre Leon Talley, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cathy Horyn and Rachel Feinstein.
After Friday’s memorial, guests were invited to a private reception at The Top of The Standard.
