25 L'Wren Scott Designs We'll Never Forget
The shocking and untimely death of designer L'Wren Scott Monday represents a personal loss for everyone who knew and loved her, but her passing also means the end of her acclaimed designs and contributions to the fashion industry. A red carpet favorite and fashion week constant, Scott designed critically praised collections popular with celebrities like Nicole Kidman for the better part of the last 10 years.
Although her London Fashion Week show was cancelled just last month, Scott was constantly designing for and collaborating with big names over the past few years. Just last fall Scott worked with Banana Republic to create a special holiday collection.
Known for her body-conscious, curve-hugging designs, L'Wren Scott managed to hold a consistent place in fashion royalty. Here are 25 of the most memorable looks from the late designer, and who wore them.
Sarah Jessica Parker at the 2007 Golden Globes
SJP has been one of the most consistent fans of L'Wren Scott throughout the years. She wore a gold dress from the designer at the 2007 Golden Globes, only one year after the debut of Scott's first collection.
Nicole Kidman at the 2008 Oscars
Nicole Kidman is maybe the best-known fan of L'Wren Scott, wearing her designs on multiple red carpets. This dress epitomizes what Scott was best at — making women look sexy and entirely feminine.
Nicole Kidman at the 2009 Oscars
Nicole Kidman quickly discovered how well Scott's designs suited her. This gown from the 2009 Oscars seemed made for Kidman.
Kyra Sedgwick at the 2009 Emmys
The 2009 Emmys were good to Scott, with big stars like Christina Hendricks and Kyra Sedgwick wearing her designs on the red carpet.
Christina Hendricks at the 2009 Emmys
L'Wren Scott was all about celebrating a women's figure, once claiming that her designs were so flattering that Spanx were never needed. And based on how amazing Christina Hendricks looked at the 2009 Emmy's, we'd say that that statement seems plausible (although it sounds like almost everyone wears Spanx on the red carpet, no matter what else they're wearing).
Naomi Campbell at the Cannes Film Festival AMFAR Party in 2010
A former model herself, L'Wren Scott understood how to dress supermodels like Naomi Campbell, and how to do it well.
Penelope Cruz at the 2010 SAG Awards
Like Kidman, Cruz has always stunned in L'Wren Scott. This little black dress was no different.

Gorgeous, blue, floor-length and every bit Oscar appropriate, Amy made many a best dressed list in this L'Wren Scott gown.
Jennifer Lawrence at the 2011 Critics Choice Awards
Although many of L'Wren's gowns were darker (and many black), she was able to create stunning, brighter pieces as well.
Penelope Cruz at the 2011 Oscars
Scott was a red carpet favorite for the 2011 Oscars, with Penelope Cruz also looking gorgeous in a red, tight L'Wren Scott number.

Scott had a way of creating silhouettes that were both modest and sexy, flattering women while never being inappropriately revealing.

Nicole Kidman at the 2013 Oscars
Kidman stunned in Scott again, this time in a beaded black gown with as much stage presence as its wearer.
