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.

folks, as Michael Jackson said in his song, if you want to better our world, go to a mirror look at yourself and start to make a change for the better. A lot of us do not even know who our neighbors are. How many people in your block went to bed hungry and cannot pay the bills??? We need to change one person at a time. So let’s go!!!!!!

my son died at 17 of an aneurysm. You can go at any age of causes that are natural to your body and not intentional…So sad to see a promising life end so soon…may her family and friends find comfort in each other at this time..

My sister died at 39 of a heart defect she’d been born with.

You wouldn’t have known to look at her that she was “sick.”

It was listed as “natural causes.”

So, YES, you CAN indeed die of “natural causes” young.

Just reading these comments leads me to believe there’s a lot of kids commenting on these articles or people that are not knowledgeable about such things.

Just want to let people know that people DO die of natural causes every day. My best friend was one of them. One Sunday we were having a girls day out, shopping, laughing, having fun. We devised a plan to let her crush know she liked him without being desperate the next day at school, over the phone that night. We talked for 2 hours which was the longest convo we had at night on the phone. At the end, she said, love ya, and hung up. That morning, i got a call from her mom saying she had died in her sleep. People thought it was a suicide. But reports came back saying she had died of natural causes. She was 12, two weeks away from reaching her 13th birthday. She obviously had no alcohol, no drugs, nothing in her system. She was also in great shape, and had no sickness, infections, diseases, etc, found in her body. Just a normal healthy almost 13 year old teen, and she died. Not fair. At all.

What is the the 18th century!?! It’s NOT natural to die at that age in the 21th century and the autopsy will prove that. May heart goes out to the family.
