His family added: ‘Harry was not just our son. He was also a wonderful brother, loving grandson, favorite uncle and a caring friend. 

‘He was a creative, loving and powerful soul that brought light into so many people’s hearts. He was truly a beautiful person inside and out.’ 

His family paid tribute to Harry as a ‘trailblazer of beauty and cosmetic products for men, collaborating with a major brand on a unisex cosmetic line.’ 

Harry alongside his older brother Peter II created a unisex make-up line for MAC cosmetics. 

The fashionista is also survived by an older half-brother from his mother’s previous marriage to guitarist Tommy Andrews, as well as four half-siblings from his father’s previous marriage to Sandra Brant.

Seymour and Brant tied the knot in July 1995 in Paris, after meeting through the photographer Sante D’Orazio when Seymour was 26 and Brant was 48. 

The ceremony was held at a chapel on an estate just outside the city.  

Seymour filed for divorce in March 2009 after 15 years of marriage, but by September 2010 they had called off their divorce.

Seymour, whose career as a supermodel soared in the 90s, has appeared on the cover of Vogue and in numerous issues of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

He told W Magazine during the launch: ‘I really think that once you leave high school, you realize that being normal is something that people want to shy away from, and the more true you are to yourself and the more individual you are, the more people are inherently attracted to you.’

He wrote in the piece: ‘Have you ever wondered why society has reserved makeup for the fairer sex? 

‘For generations, men who dared to disrupt this silly taboo not only had their masculinity questioned, but were more often than not met with a barrage of shaming, harassment, and ridicule.’ 

In another piece for the magazine in 2014, Harry interviewed New Zealand singer Lorde about her ‘dark lip and heavy cat eye’. 

The socialite was arrested back in 2016, after refusing to pay a cab fare in Greenwich, Connecticut, for which he was charged with larceny, interfering with an officer and drug possession.

The same year, his brother Peter II was charged with assault after allegedly getting into a fight with a Port Authority officer at JFK Airport. 

New York Magazine once referred to Harry and his brother Peter II as ‘NYC’s Most Beautiful Teenage Brothers’ while Vanity Fair referred to them as ‘Little Lord Flauntleroys’.
