The fashion industry was rocked when news of the untimely death of L'Wren Scott, one of the industry's most illustrious insiders, broke around noon yesterday. Many fashion vets on Twitter were rightly upset that general interest media, including the The New York Times, continued to refer to the designer as only "Mick Jagger's girlfriend" in headlines.

But from modeling to styling to designing, Scott had left her glamorous mark on all facets of the industry, and will be remembered for her contributions to fashion and Hollywood. Always a business-woman, her greatest accomplishments reflect her sense of industry, elegance and discretion. From walking in a Chanel show to styling Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut, to designing closet must-haves for everyone from Madonna to Michelle Obama, her mark was wide-reaching and lasting. We've collected several of her biggest accomplishments below.
