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 read elsewhere it was a blood clot stemming from “minor” surgery. I have no idea if that has been verified. Regardless, 36 is so terribly young to die. :(

Nobody dies of natural causes at age 36. Just tell it like it is.

Dying of natural causes only means it was not a homicide or suicide. You can die from kidney failure, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack- all of those are considered natural causes.

Birth Control pills can cause blood clots in someone her age.

Just recently in the news a young girl died from natural causes, she was 18 yrs old, and just fell down and died. Anyone can just suddenly die, age doesn’t matter!

She died in her sleep from a blood clot!

It is perfectly “natural” to die at 36 if your body says so. Like a brain aneurysm, which has been reported elsewhere. It is sad, but certainly not unnatural. Weird comments.

Wow people really look for drama at every turn! People die all the time at all ages. I saw a baby in the stroke ward! It just makes it even more tragic.

Incredibly sad. So young, beautiful and apparently had everything going for her. My condolences to her friends and family.
