Family and friends including Mick Jagger, Sarah Jessica Parker and Martin Scorsese gathered together for the memorial service of fashion designer L'Wren Scott on Friday evening in New York City. Jagger shared some words of tribute to his longtime girlfriend and sang Bob Dylan's "Just Like a Woman" at the service, according to a statement from Jagger's publicist.

The service was held at St. Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan and also included tributes from Scott's brother, Randy Bambrough, her friend Ellen Barkin, Sarah Jessica Parker and fashion editor André Leon Talley. Jagger's son, James Jagger, and Scott's niece, Hannah Bambrough, both read poems and Jagger's grandchildren Mazie and Zak read Psalm 23. Longtime Rolling Stones backup singer Lisa Fischer sang "Amazing Grace."

The Associated Press reports that Martin Scorsese, Julianne Moore, Meg Ryan, Olivia Munn, Baz Luhrman and Vogue Editor Anna Wintour also attended the service. 

Scott died in March of an apparent suicide at the age of 47. "I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way," Jagger, who had been dating Scott since 2001, said in a statement shortly after her death. "We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. . . . I will never forget her."

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
