A family spokesman confirmed the tragic news in a statement: “It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of Stella Tennant on December 22nd, 2020. Stella was a wonderful woman and an inspiration to us all. She will be missed very much. "
Tennant's eye-catching look helped define fashion in the '90s - her pixie haircut, piercing blue gaze, and angular figure were in line with the grunge era - though her career spanned well beyond the decade.
Tennant was born a nobleman in Scotland (her parents were the honorable Tobias William Tennant, son of the second Baron Glenconner, and Lady Emma Cavendish, and her grandmother was the celebrity Deborah Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire) a student at the University of Southampton. After sending a few photos to the magazine's editors, she caught the attention of photographer Steven Meisel. A cover soon followed, as did designer-muse relationships with Helmut Lang and later with Karl Lagerfeld, who signed her for an exclusive deal with Chanel and cited her resemblance to the brand's founder, Coco Chanel.

Throughout her career, Tennent continued to grace covers, spreads, and campaigns, including Burberry, Calvin Klein, Hermès, Prada, and Alexander McQueen. Tennant was also one of nine models unveiled at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony.
In 1999 she married David Lasnet, a photographer who became an osteopath. They have four children together and lived in the village of Edrom in Berwickshire, Scotland.
"Your family is asking for their privacy to be respected," the spokesman continued. "Arrangements for a memorial service will be announced at a later date."
