Madonna is one of many celebrities mourning the death of designer L'Wren Scott , who was found dead in her New York City apartment Monday morning of an apparent suicide. 

After a career as a model, the statuesque Scott, who stood six-feet, four-inches tall, became a designer, creating outfits for Madonna as well as Oprah Winfrey , Michelle Obama , Nicole Kidman , Penelope Cruz , Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence . Scott designed the so-called "Headmistress" dress , a black-and-white wool number which became one of Madonna's most notable looks.

In a statement to ABC News Radio, Madonna says, "This is a horrible and tragic loss. I'm so upset. I loved L’Wren's work and she was always so generous with me.” 

Scott had also been dating Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger since 2001; his publicist said in a statement that he was "devastated" by her death.  Other celebrities who tweeted their sadness at the news include Nicole Kidman, Bette Midler , Olivia Wilde , Angie Harmon , Bo Derek , Olivia Munn and Alyssa Milano .

ABC News has learned that Scott's assistant discovered the designer's body hanging from a doorknob in the apartment, and called police at 10:05 a.m. ET.  No note was found, and no criminality is suspected; the medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
