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.

I didn’t think anybody styled the Olsen twins…

Very sad to pass that young. You can absolutely die of natural causes at any age. It’s silly (and frivolous) to think otherwise. RIP.

She died of a blood clot, NOT natural causes. Dying at age 36 or 39 (supposedly her real age), is NOT natural.

I hear what you are saying about “natural causes” happening at any age, but that’s just a technical term. There’s always a cause. And to just drop dead at 36 is not all that common. Perhaps we’ll hear more about what really happened. What a shame.

If she did indeed die of a blood clot that would be considered natural causes. You can die of natural causes at any age.

Who knows, Since everyone is so health obsessed across the U.S-Ragging on about it all the time-Since Hollywood likes to think of themselves as trendsetters-Maybe she was “healthy” by celebrity standards? Bet she was a vegetarian! I know one thing- She wasnt “obese” Hmmm. Its still sad!

Nope, natural causes does not include an overdose. It just means it wasn’t foul play or suicide, but she easily could have OD’ed. She does hang with celebrities, so it wouldn’t be a stretch. Condolences to the family whatever the cause of her young death.

Wow, some of you guys commenting are…not bright. thankfully some people have pointed out that it IS possible to die at 36 and it be natural and not foul play or drug/alcohol related. Duh.

I have friends that died of cardiac conditions in their 30’s….those are “natural causes”.
