L'Wren Scott, a fashion designer and celebrity stylist who was Mick Jagger's girlfriend, has been found dead in Manhattan.

A law official said Scott's assistant found her on Monday morning (local time). The official said there was no sign of foul play.

A spokeswoman for Mick Jagger said the singer was "completely shocked and devastated by the news."

Jagger is in Australia, on tour with the Rolling Stones. The veteran rockers were due to play in New Zealand on April 5.

The Utah-born Scott had her own fashion label popular with celebrities. She was a fixture on Jagger's arm and, at around 190cm, towered over her famous boyfriend.

She founded her high-end label in 2006 and recently created a more affordable line of clothes with Banana Republic.

On the red carpet, she has dressed stars like Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker and Angelina Jolie.

Just last month she cancelled her London Fashion Week show, due to reported production delays.
