L'Wren Scott is grateful for her height.

The model-turned-fashion designer - who is dating Rolling Stones legend Sir Mick Jagger - says being 6ft 3in tall has taught her to be comfortable with her looks and not worry about what anyone is saying about her.

She said: "I think that I have always had composure. I don't think that you can be 6ft 3in and care if people talk about you. So I think, just from sheer stature, I developed a kind of shield early on."

As well as modelling and fashion designing, L'Wren used to be a stylist to the stars and says it was a privilege to play a big part in someone's fashion choices.

She said: "I always felt honoured to be asked, that somebody trusted you to help them with their personal style."

However, she knew that while she was doing it, she never gave up on her dream to become a designer, something she has now achieved.

She told Style magazine: "It wasn't really the fashion focus I wanted. So I kept shifting my focus closer and closer to my objective of being a designer."
