L'Wren Scott's career moved from model, stylist, to fashion designer. There are two versions of how she got her start.

The first has her at age 16, being spotted by photographer Bruce Weber, when he came to Utah on a photo shoot. He advised her to go to Paris. It is said that a year later she flew to Europe on a one-way ticket, after telling her parents she was going to New York.

The second indicates that Scott moved to Los Angeles a year-and-a-half after graduating from high school, where she was spotted by a scout with agency ties in Paris and began calling herself "L'Wren."

Working with Paris-based agencies, Glamour and Marilyn Gauthier, she went on to work for Thierry Mugler and Chanel, Helmut Newton, as well as model for photographers as Guy Bourdin, David Bailey and Jean-Paul Goude.[10] Her first commercial success was as the legs on a clock for the Pretty Polly hosiery ads, with photographs taken by David Bailey.

Scott moved to California in the early 1990s and established herself as a stylist, initially in collaboration with photographer Herb Ritts, and later with Helmut Newton, Karl Lagerfeld and Mario Sorrenti. One of her early assignments was an ad campaign for Elizabeth Taylor's White Diamonds, eventually the world's top-selling celebrity fragrance.

In 2009, she contributed designs for Madonna to wear in her photo shoot with model Jesus Luz for W Magazine and in 2011, Scott styled actress Julia Roberts for a W Magazine shoot, alongside Tom Hanks. She designed costumes for such films as Diabolique (1996 remake), Ocean's Thirteen, Eyes Wide Shut, as well as Shine a Light, a documentary by Martin Scorsese about The Rolling Stones, with Mick Jagger, with whom she had been romantically linked since 2001.

As Scott told Vogue in 2009, "I trusted my instincts and stuck to what I believed in." Scott designed clothing, makeup, perfume, handbags, shoes, and eyeglasses.
