Stella Tennant, one of the most renowned catwalk models and cover stars of the 1990s, died at age 50, her family announced on Wednesday. “It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of Stella Tennant on December 22, 2020,” said the statement. “Stella was a wonderful woman and an inspiration to all of us. She will be sorely missed.” Scottish police said they were summoned to the Scottish border town of Duns, “after the sudden death of a 50-year-old woman” and that there were no suspicious circumstances. Stella Tennant, who turned 50 on December 17, paraded for fashion houses like Chanel, Versace and Valentino and was the muse of Karl Lagerfeld. She has continued her career in recent years.
British Vogue wrote in a tribute that she last appeared on the cover in 2018, marking 25 years since she first appeared in the magazine at the age of 22 in 1993.
She had an aristocratic background and was the granddaughter of Deborah Mitford, the Duchess of Devonshire, who died in 2014. She was married to French photographer turned osteopath David Lasnet and the couple had four children.
