    I was so shocked when I read the article on the BBC earlier today, especially amidst all the other horrendous articles. This year...

    I can never claim that I was a huge Stella fan, or that she was the kind of model I followed closely, but her work truly spoke for itself and the amount of amazing images she helped create over the past three decades are numerous. Plus I recently read an interview she did with Tim Blanks for Document and she seemed truly grounded and full of love for her job after all these years.

    Really sad. Truly RIP :( :flower:. I feel so sorry for her kids especially, and given the time of year that this all transpired.

    Wow, this made me dust off my TFS account! I've strayed away from fashion during the past few years, but this made my heart sink.

    I'm still really sad about this. It reminded me how nothing in life is certain.

    I've been so knee-deep in prepping for tonight, only saw this now on BBC! Truly shocked at the news. RIP Stella.

    Neither can I, to be honest. But as with Daria, I respect and appreciate the work they've done and the fact that they've always led grounded, private lives. Someone also posted earlier that she always seemed omnipresent in the industry, I'd like to add 'without being in your face'. Just there, quietly booking shows, covers and campaigns. And all of that probably led to their success and respect in the industry. You'd need a coffee-table book to encapsulate all her work!

    via Daily Mail, I really feel for the kids, this can't be the easiest time to process something of this magnitude.

    'I saw her recently out on her horse, and we had a good chat. She seemed well, but did say she was very worried about [the impact of] Covid [on fashion] because she thought it might mean she never worked again.
    'She said that by the time people were allowed to travel again and the catwalk shows re-started, she would be regarded as too old. But that was the only thing that gave the impression she wasn't completely happy.'

    And I have to say, I'm once again appalled by The Sun already turning out hit pieces on David Lasnet. Tasteless!!!

    What a sad day...what a sad year...

    Stella Tennant: Model dies days after 50th birthday

    British model Stella Tennant has died at the age of 50, her family have said.

    The Scot made her name in the early 1990s on catwalks for designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Versace, and on the covers Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.

    Her family said: "Stella was a wonderful woman and an inspiration to us all. She will be greatly missed."

    They said her death was "sudden", and police said there were "no suspicious circumstances". Her death came five days after her 50th birthday.

    The family statement said: "It is with great sadness we announce the sudden death of Stella Tennant on 22nd December 2020...

    "Her family ask for their privacy to be respected. Arrangements for a memorial service will be announced at a later date."

    Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Claudia allegedly have an issue with Stella in the 90s when the latter became Karl's new muse and favorite after her? I think I may have read this somewhere. Not really sure. I may be wrong. Sorry for bringing it up but I just remembered it that's why.

    Yes, that's correct! That's why I posted Claudia's tribute because they must've patched things up afterwards. And in the end Karl stayed loyal to both of them.
    Claudia had the following to say at the time:

    'I'm no great fan of the fact that nowadays you have to look like a junkie just to be cool... I stick to photographers who want me to look beautiful and healthy. Stella is a neat-looking girl. It's the way she's presented that I resent.'

    I got curious after reading this. But I couldn’t find anything on their site other than an article explaining who he is. What hit pieces are you referring to Benn98?
