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’m going to slaughter the spelling here, but anneurysm?? That can take someone of any age IMMEDIATELY.

It's possible on

While not “natural” to die at 36, it just means that it was not caused by drugs, alcohol, she wasn’t murdered, and she didn’t kill herself. People have heart attacks, strokes, cancer, etc at any age, not just when they are older. Sudden? Yes. But unfortunately, people of every age die every day.

It can happen. Maybe she had a bad heart that was not known about or maybe it was an aneurysm. Won’t know until an autopsy.

I think we should all keep our comments to my condolences. Death comes to all when it’s time. R. I. P Annabell may God welcome you in peace!

“Natural causes ” is a medical term which simply means that no one else was involved in her death and that it was caused by internal illness. For example dehydration or heart problems.

She had a blood clot.

Natural causes means a disease process. It could have been sudden, like a heart attack or maybe something undiagnosed.
