Ingrid Sischy, a prominent writer, editor and critic, passed away Friday in New York after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 63.

Known for her coverage of the fashion and art worlds, Sischy has been the editor of Art Forum; was a fashion critic for The New Yorker; served as editor in chief of Interview (with her now-wife, Interview president and publisher Sandra Brant); and has been a contributor to Vanity Fair since 1997. There, she penned a number of memorable profiles spanning fashion, art and entertainment, including John Galliano's first post-scandal interview.

In addition to a beautiful obituary written by Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair has published her last piece for the magazine, a profile of Karl Lagerfeld's seven-year old model/muse, Hudson Kroenig. It will be in the magazine's September issue, but you can read it now here.
