Supermodel Stella Tennant dies suddenly aged 50
LONDON (Reuters) -Stella Tennant, one of the UK's top models, has died at the age of 50, British media reported on Wednesday.
Tennant was born into the Scottish aristocracy. Her unconventional, androgynous looks helped her break into the fashion world in the 1990s.
She became the new face of Chanel and has graced the covers of fashion magazines around the world.
"It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of Stella Tennant on December 22, 2020," her family said in a statement to the PA news agency.
"Stella was a wonderful woman and an inspiration to all of us. She will be greatly missed."
The BBC quoted a police spokesman as saying there were "no suspicious circumstances" regarding her death, which occurred five days after her 50th birthday.
Off the catwalk, Tennant has been committed to reducing the environmental impact of the fashion industry.
"It will take us a long time to change our habits, but I think this is so obviously a step in the right direction," she told the Guardian last year.
Tennant retired from the fashion industry in 1998 and returned part-time to shoot clothing campaigns and appear on the catwalk.
She survives her husband David Lasnet and their four children.
