The news reports say she took her own life. When this happens to people who seem to "have it all", I think we are even more shocked. Part of the thought process may be: she/he had everything to live for, to look forward to. How could despair win out over all the apparent joy?
We never do know, of course, what's in the mind of any public figure. I won't speculate on what troubles overwhelmed Ms. Scott. I just want to be sad for a moment, then appreciate her marvelous art. Then be very grateful for my smallish, but happy life, the supportive friends and family and good fortune as well. Rest in peace, Ms. Scott, and thanks for all the beauty.

The ombre dress on the left is especially fetching. "Adult and alluring," fashion writers said.

Have a lovely day, and stay fabulous,
