She was only 36 years old — and tragically, she's already gone. Fashionista Daisy Lewellyn, the star of the Bravo TV show Blood, Sweat & Heels has died of a very rare form of liver cancer.
"We are devastated," Bravo said in a statement to Us Weekly. "Daisy passed on in peace and filled with joy, surrounded by her family and friends. We are all saddened to lose this wonderful woman."
Daisy died on Friday after a years-long battle with the disease; she was diagnosed with stage III cancer when she was just 34. Many took to social media to express their sorrow and sympathies, including her costar Demetria Lucas D'Oyley.

The reality star was formerly a successful fashion editor in the magazine world, working for Essence, Glamour and InStyle before penning her own book. She opened up last year about her illness.
"I'm not afraid to die," she told Madame Noir. "It wasn’t like I wanted to die ... I absolutely love my life ... but I was like, 'Well, if it's my time to go, I'm okay with it.'"
R.I.P., Daisy Lewellyn. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.
