Her obituary read: "The angels in heaven will certainly benefit from her sense of style and fashion. Arriving at the gates of heaven in one of many pairs of unique sunglasses, more rings than her fingers could hold, and either a furry jacket or hat and a one-of-a-kind pair of trendy sneakers, and that magnificent smile that was a magnet for all.

"Mary-Brian will always be remembered by her contagious laugh, her witty sense of humor and her unique ability to connect with others.

"She was a light to everyone who knew her which came from her belief in the good of others."

Following Ruehlemann's death in January 2023, Clarke shared numerous photos and videos of them together on Instagram, writing: "I miss you every second."

News of his death also sparked tributes across the fashion industry.

Designer Christian Siriano wrote: "I have never posted anything like this but to lose a friend who was such a beautiful soul is just really hard.

"This is for Jeremy, the most beautiful man that gave so much love to everyone he met no matter what. He was one of my muses and he always will be. He inspired me and I will love him forever.

The causes of death of both Clarke and Ruehlemann have not yet been disclosed.

"I know we will meet again one day but right now I just want to hug him. Rest well J we all love you so much! Send love to his family today please."

While model Lexi Wood wrote: "I can't even fathom a world where I would ever have to be writing this. But if you have ever known me you know how much I love jeremy. I can't even articulate the magic that he was.

"I met Jeremy when I was 15, the day I met him I knew my heart would be full forever, he's my soulmate, my best friend, my support, my family, my light, my love, my twin flame… I could go on and on because he was so special.

"But I think what was the most special thing about him was that he was walking sunshine, he made everyone feel like they were the most special in the room, when he went anywhere it was like there was a light beam on him. His love will eternally flow through this world."
