Sir Mick Jagger has paid tribute to his late girlfriend, L'Wren Scott on her birthday.

L 'Wren was tragically found dead by her assistant in her apartment in Manhattan, New York City, in March 2014, with police confirming it was suicide.

Remembering L'Wren - on what would have been her 50th birthday today (04.28.15) - The Rolling Stones frontman posted a photo on his Twitter page along with a short tribute.

The caption posted with the photo read: ''Remembering L'Wren on her birthday Photo by Jean Pigozzi (sic).''

The 71-year-old musician was devastated when he heard his late girlfriend who he met in 2001 had passed away.

The 'Satisfaction' hitmaker appreciated her contribution to fashion as a designer, and in her memory he recently set up a fashion scholarship as a fitting tribute to the designer.

He described his former companion as an ''extraordinary designer''.

The course director of MA Fashion, Fabio Piras, said in a statement he is ''very grateful to receive this extremely generous scholarship package''.

The scholarship is offered to one master degree student a year and allows them to attend Central Saint Martins in London.

Beneficiaries of the grant will have their tuition paid for along with some living expenses.
