Scott, a former model who parlayed her love of fashion into an acclaimed career as a stylist and then in design, was beloved by celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Christina Hendricks, Sandra Bullock and First Lady Michelle Obama, who have all been spotted in her gowns.

She ranked among The Hollywood Reporter's 25 Most Powerful Stylists in 2011, 2012 and 2013 but failed to make this year's list. Scott also canceled planned shows at both New York and London Fashion Week, citing production delays.
