Mick Jagger sang Bob Dylan's "Just Like a Woman" at the funeral of his girlfriend and longtime partner, fashion designer L'Wren Scott, this past Friday.

The celebrity-filled event, held at St. Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan, was attended by Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, actress Julianne Moore, actress Sarah Jessica Parker, and film directors Martin Scorsese and Baz Luhrmann to name a few, The Daily Mail reported.

Scott was found hanged by a scarf in her New York apartment on March 17 at the age of 49. Her suicide follows that of British fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who killed himself in 2010.

She and Rolling Stones' frontman, now 70, had been dating since 2001. Jagger spoke at her funeral as well. Scott's brother Randy Bambrough, her good friend actress Ellen Barkin, fashion personality Andre Leon Talley, and actress Sarah Jessica Parker also spoke at the memorial service.

Scott's dresses were popular with Hollywood A-listers like Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams and Penelope Cruz, and her sudden passing left many heartbroken.

"I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way," Jagger wrote on his website in March. "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 have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her."

The memorial service comes just a few weeks after Scott's small, private funeral in Los Angeles in March. There, Bambrough's daughter, Hannah, read a Shakespearean sonnet and Rolling Stones' background singer Bernard Fowler performed "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" accompanied by Dave Stewart on guitar.
