Sir Mick Jagger sang a version of Bob Dylan's Just Like a Woman at a memorial service for his partner L'Wren Scott, who took her own life in March.

The event took place at St Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan, New York, on Friday.

Jagger and actresses Ellen Barkin and Sarah Jessica Parker were among those who spoke at the memorial, according to Jagger's publicist, Vicki Scarfone.

Film directors Martin Scorsese and Baz Luhrmann also attended.

Scott's brother, Randy Bambrough, paid his own tribute at the service, while poems were read by Scott's niece, Hannah Bambrough, and Sir Mick's son James.

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker was a fan of Scott's designs

Two of Sir Mick's grandchildren, Mazie and Zak, read Psalm 23, while the star's backing singer, Lisa Fischer, performed Amazing Grace.

Others in attendance included actresses Julianne Moore, Meg Ryan, Olivia Munn and Renee Zellweger, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and tennis star John McEnroe.

Scott's funeral took place in Los Angeles in March.

The fashion designer had been in a relationship with Sir Mick since 2001 and designed stage outfits for the Rolling Stones when they performed at Glastonbury Festival and Hyde Park last summer.

Scott's high-end fashion label was a favourite among Hollywood stars including Nicole Kidman, Tina Fey and Sarah Jessica Parker, and her designs have been worn by Michelle Obama.
