Harry Brant's last Instagram posts honored a friend and paid tribute to model Stella Tennant after her suicide

SOCIALITE Harry Brant's last Instagram posts honored a friend and paid tribute to model Stella Tennant after her suicide.

The 24-year-old son of supermodel Stephanie Seymour died of an accidental drug overdose on Sunday.

In what would be his last post to Instagram, Harry posted a picture of himself with French stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele and Miley Cyrus, wishing her a happy birthday.

Since the news of his death broke, the post has received hundreds of comments from people sharing their condolences for the 24-year-old.

Three weeks ago, Harry posted a tribute to his friend and supermodel Stella Tennant who tragically took her own life after being "unwell for some time".

"They don't make em like this anymore. RIP," he posted to his 120K followers.

Harry's family confirmed his death of an accidental overdose of prescription medication: tragically just days before Harry was due to enter rehab.

Born August 3, 1996, he was the son of Seymour, 52, and billionaire husband and industrialist Peter Brant.

A statement released by his family read: "We will forever be saddened that his life was cut short by this devastating disease.

"He achieved a lot in his 24 years, but we will never get the chance to see how much more Harry could have done.

"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 had hoped for him to complete his stint in rehab before embarking on a larger creative role in his father's Interview Magazine this year.

The 24-year-old followed in the footsteps of both his parents – writing a column for one of his fathers publications, Interview, as a teenager, before trying his hand at modelling.

Harry mirrored his supermodel mum, appearing in campaigns for Balmain as well as Italian Vogue.

Harry was known for pushing the boundaries of both beauty and fashion, and he and brother Peter founded a uni-sex make-up line for MAC Cosmetics, titled 'The Brant Brothers'.

Socialite Harry enjoyed a privileged childhood, but seemed to begin a downward spiral in 2016.

He was charged with larceny, drug possession, and interfering with an officer after refusing to pay a cab fare in Connecticut.

In 2009, his father Peter Brant Sr. accused Seymour of being an "unfit mother" in divorce filings, claiming she popped pills and abused alcohol.

The pair reconciled in 2010, walking hand-in-hand through the state Superior Court in Middletown, just before the case went to trial to determine custody of the children and splitting of the assets.
