Annabel Tollman, who has dressed everyone from Mariah Carey to Liv Tyler and the Olsen twins, died suddenly in her sleep Wednesday. She was 36 years old.
The British-born stylist died in her West Village apartment, but the cause of death has yet to be determined. However, New York Magazine‘s The Cut said that she passed away from a blood clot, although that has yet to be confirmed.
Tollman’s friends and family thanked everyone for their support on her official Facebook page Friday afternoon.
“We thank you all for honoring our beloved Annabel. Her beauty, spirit and love will remain in our hearts always. At this time, there is not confirmation of what caused this tragedy and we ask that you respect Annabel’s privacy, legacy and honor and continue to think of her her just as she was, perfect in every way,” they wrote. “When we have news to share regarding memorial services and celebrating her life, we will be sure to make an announcement.”
Annabel Tollman was born in Brussels and earned a degree in fashion journalism from Central St. Martins College of Arts and Design in London. She became a full-time celebrity stylist in 2008 after working at Interview magazine, where she was the publication’s first fashion director.
In 2010, Tollman was voted one of the 50 most stylish New Yorkers by StyleCaster. In 2011, The Hollywood Reporter named her one of the 25 most powerful stylists in Hollywood.
Paper magazine editorial director Mickey Boardman was among the first to tweet about Tollman’s death.
Devastated. Just devastated to hear about the loss of dear Annabel Tollman. She was just a nice, sweet, really good girl. A real gem.
