As news of fashion designer and model L'Wren Scott's death spread across the internet, tons of celebrity friends have expressed their grief and condolences. Scott's partner of ten years, Mick Jagger, is, reportedly, "shocked and devastated." What a completely tragic loss.
Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour released the following statement expressing her condolences. "I am deeply saddened by the loss of L'Wren Scott. L'Wren was a total perfectionist, someone who absolutely embodied everything her marvelous clothes stood for: strength of character combined with a confident and powerful style. In person, L'Wren was always unbelievably generous, gracious, kind, and so much fun. Her old world American manners and charm were from another time, but her sensibility was always fiercely modern. We will all miss her."

Lena Dunham was on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast today, and they talked about Woody Allen.
"In the latest Woody Allen debate I'm decidedly pro-Dylan Farrow and decidedly disgusted with Woody Allen's behavior," she said onMarc Maron's "WTF" podcast Monday. "But for me, when people go through his work and comb through it for references to child molestation, that's not the f—ing point."
..."I'm not gonna indict the work," Dunham said. "I think that you can decide that you don't want to support the work of somebody who has molested a child. That's a completely appropriate choice. But going through it and saying, look, he's told us in 57 ways that he rapes kids — that's not the thing. The thing is to look at the actual evidence that exists in the world, which I think strongly suggests that Woody Allen is in the wrong. But for me the point is not to go through his one-act plays looking for references to child molestation. Because I'm not comfortable living in a world where art is part of how we convict people of crimes."
Still, Dunham said, she hasn't been interested in watching Allen's films recently.
"I mean for me, I haven't wanted to watch his movies for a long time, partially because of who I think he is and partially because I think they got really bad," she said.
I agree that Woody Allen did enough creepy shit in "real life" that we don't need to turn his art into a scavenger hunt. But, that said, THERE IS SOME MEGA-CREEPY SHIT IN THAT ART. Also, seconded on the dude-stopped-making-good-movies-hella-long-ago thing. [TheWrap]
