Blood, Sweat & Heels Star Daisy Lewellyn Has Passed Away
Daisy Lewellyn has sadly lost her battle to cancer at age 36. As someone who was a friend, constant source of inspiration and considered a life-long member of the ESSENCE family, we are deeply saddened by this news.
Deemed the “Queen of Effortless Chic,” Lewellyn was known and loved as a style expert and TV personality with the the type of spunk, sass and smarts to back it up. The California-native’s resume reads like a whos-who of the fashion world, having held editorships at InStyle, Glamour, and of course ESSENCE — where she served as the Accessories Editor from 2006-2007.
Lewellyn also became an author in 2010 after publishing “Never Pay Retail Again: Shop Smart, Spend Less, & Look Your Best Ever.” And while she was no doubt a beloved figure in the beauty and fashion industry, the world got to bask in the her awesomeness when she was selected to star on Bravo’s hit reality show “Blood, Sweet and Heels.” Lewellyn’s soaring career, hilarious one-liners and infectious smile were on full display. The show was also a testimony to her undying strength as she gracefully lived her life to the fullest despite her diagnosis.
The last Instagram post from the star showed her resilience and beauty:
Please keep Daisy’s entire family in your prayers during this incredibly difficult time.
