The fashion world — including top 90s supermodels Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford — is in mourning for famed British model Stella Tennant, who sadly passed away suddenly at just 50-years-old
Iconic 90s supermodels, fashion magazine editors and design houses are paying tribute after the news that supermodel Stella Tennant has suddenly passed away at age 50, just five days after her milestone birthday. Her family released a statement to the media about the Scottish-born beauty that read, “It is with great sadness we announce the sudden death of Stella Tennant on 22nd December 2020. Stella was a wonderful woman and an inspiration to us all. She will be greatly missed.” Police who responded to an address in the village of Duns, Scotland near her home said there were “no suspicious circumstances” in her death.
Many of her fellow supermodels took to Instagram to remember the mother of four, who was a 90s icon. She graced the runways of Versace, McQueen, Chanel and more after rising to fame in a 1993 shoot for British Vogue at the age of 22. The late great Gianni Versace even referred to her back in the day as his “muse,” before he was murdered in July 1997.
Fellow British-born supermodel Naomi Campbell, 50, posted a series of Stella’s most iconic professional modeling photos to her Instagram. It was clear from the caption how well the two women knew each other. “STELLA TENNANT CLASS ACT IN EVERYWAY Humble, loyal, balanced, practical, a rare beauty inside and out,” she wrote. “You were one of the good ones never any love lost when we would see each other, always picked up from where we left off. Effortless and the epitome of Grace, even when you would sit in a corner doing your needle point. Timeless Angel amongst us. ICON YOU WILL ALWAYS BE. R.I.P.”
Cindy Crawford, 54, shared an iconic photo of Stella in one of her more androgynous looks, wearing a green turtleneck while resting her head against a white horse. “Stella Tenant, gone too soon. I always admired her fearlessness and style. Sending prayers to her family,” Cindy wrote in the caption.
Christy Turlington, 51, reminisced on IG, “I remember meeting Stella in London in the early 90’s. We were dressing next to each other backstage at a show. She was so beautiful and gentle, naked except for her nose piercing and big black boots. I will remember her easy laugh and humble strength. Later, after Stella had become a mother she would beam talking about the kids and the farm and her other ‘quiet’ life. Stella evolved in front of all of our eyes in the most beautiful, relaxed and confident way. I never imagined there was anything she couldn’t do. You are deeply admired, respected and will be missed by everyone you touched in this lifetime.”
Claudia Schiffer shared several photos modeling alongside Stella, including on a Chanel runway, posing with the house’s late Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld, and another alongside designer Stella McCartney while the Stella and Claudia modeled her designs. The 50-year-old wrote in the caption, “It is very sad news about Stella Tennant. She was the most perfect, beautiful, quintessential British woman. Understated and elegant, witty and smart, lovely and warm-hearted. Stella really was a star who shone brightly. I always enjoyed our time together, and my thoughts and prayers are with her family.”
Elle magazine Editor in Chief and Project Runway judge Nina Garcia mourned Stella in a tweet that showed Stella gracing Elle‘s cover and read, “RIP Stella Tennant. The muse, the mother, the fashion icon but also the activist. She mixed fragility and an innate elegance with an androgynous look that inspired designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Pier Paolo Piccioli or Sarah Burton. She also took risks and under the lens of Steven Meisel or Tim Walker, embraced avant-garde creating a powerful fashion iconography that’s impossible to forget. My condolences to her family and friends.”
The official Twitter account of @Versace wrote, “Versace is mourning the death of #StellaTennant. Stella was Gianni Versace’s muse for many years and friend of the family. We will miss you forever Stella. Rest In Peace,” and shred a photo of Stella in a Richard Avedon photo modeling for Atelier Versace Spring/Summer 1996 campaign. Stella was an icon for the label in the 90s under the late Gianni, walking in his shows and starring in the brand’s fashion campaigns. His sister Donatella Versace took over designing for the label after her brother’s murder. She wrote on Instagram next to a photo of Stella modeling a Versace gown, “Stella, I cannot believe you are gone. You have left us way too soon. We met when you were at the beginning of your career. I cherish every moment we spent together. Ciao. Rest In Peace. Donatella.”

Lori Loughlin Delivers Food To Those In Need 3 Months After Prison Release — Pic
Lori Loughlin spent some time on April 14 delivering food with Project Angel Foods. See the latest photos of the former actress, who was released from prison at the end of December 2020.
Lori Loughlin kept a low-profile while volunteering in Los Angeles on April 14. The former Full House actress, 56, was spotted wearing a pair of blue jeans, a cream-colored sweater with 3/4 length sleeves, a face mask and baseball cap while out volunteering. Lori has been working with Project Angel Foods and delivering items to those in need, just over three months since her prison release.
This isn’t the first time that Lori has been spotted out and about, as she completes her 100 hours of community service that was designated along with her guilty plea. In fact, Lori was photographed driving her SUV in Calabasas, CA, on Thursday, April 8, just after her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was released from prison and transitioned to home confinement on April 2. It’s been quite a whirlwind for the couple, who pled guilty in May 2020 to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud by paying college admissions counselor Rick Singer over $500,000 in order to secure their daughters, Olivia Jade, 21, and Isabella Rose, 22, spots at the University of Southern California.
Lori served two months of her prison sentence, while Mossimo served five months. Along with serving time in prison, both Lori and Mossimo paid fines for their illegal actions. Lori paid $150,000 while Mossimo paid $250,000 in November 2020. Lori has been partnering with Project Angel Foods for some time, and was actually spotted delivering foods and services in early March.
Along with Lori and Mossimo settling back into their new normal, the couple’s daughters have also been repairing their own reputations. Olivia has been vocal about her part in the college admissions scandal, and for that Lori is proud. “Lori is so proud of Olivia for continuing to speak out,” a source shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife in late March 2021.
“[Lori] wants to be able to speak out, but really wants to control the narrative and have Mossimo home [first],” the insider continued. “[But] she is closer with her daughters than ever right now.” Mossimo will begin completing his 250 hours of community service after April 17, a few short weeks after settling back at home.
