The fashion world has suffered a great loss: Celebrity stylist Annabel Tollman passed away suddenly at the age of 36, the New York Daily News reports. She was found dead, apparently of natural causes, in her New York City apartment on Thursday.

Tollman’s clients included Scarlett Johansson, Shakira, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Some of her greatest styling moments were dressing Johansson in a form-fitting red Valentino gown for the 2006 Golden Globes and helping Kristen Wiig chicly navigate her Bridesmaids press tour in 2011.

Tollman, born in Brussels in 1977 and raised between the U.K. and N.Y.C, also worked as a fashion director for Interview magazine, and according to The Cut, was developing a Bravo series at the time of her death. She earned a degree in fashion journalism from Central St. Martins in London, and wrote for myriad publications. In 2010, she also became a spokeswoman for eBay Fashion, and was profiled in the New York Times, where she shared her fashion motto: “Make a fairy tale and go and live in it.”

While no signs of suspicious behavior surrounding her death were reported, an autopsy is planned, a NYPD spokesman said via WWD.

Who dies of “natural causes” at age 36? I hate that – why not say that the cause of death is being kept private or is unknown at this time? Saying “natural causes” just sounds dumb.

It’s not natural to die at 36.

You can absolutely die from natural causes at any age. She may have had a disease or heart problem.

Because people actually deserve privacy, especially the family and friends who will have suffered a great loss. We don’t always deserve the whole truth :( she was a beautiful woman. I hope her soul rests in peace

Died suddenly of “natural causes” at 36? That sounds odd especially if she was planning to have her own Bravo show.
I did not know of her and it doesn’t affect me, but it is an odd report.

@bt People die of natural cause at all ages…aneurysm, stroke, heart attack are all natural causes. If foul play isn’t suspected and it wasn’t a suicide or due to an accident of some sort, it’s “natural causes”.

Miriam on

Natural causes include strokes and heart attacks which is perfectly normal to suffer from even at an early age. When they write “apparently from natural causes” it just means that there are no signs of foul play. Use your common sense, folks.

Natural causes means she wasn’t murdered, didn’t committ suicide and didn’t overdose. Many people die from undetected conditions at very young ages.

It says on a different site that she died of a blood clot. She was so young :(

Reading the comments just prove to me that there are LOT of ignorant people out there. Natural causes includes a myriad of things and can affect anyone from 1 to 99!
