We want to just extend our condolences to Charla's family, Matt Lauer said on the Today show.
She had such a brave face, Anne Curry added. She was so vibrant ... she'd always come up with these coinages that would make you smile.
It is with great sadness that we note that Charla Krupp, the indefatigable author of some of the funniest and most helpful style books for real women, died today at the age of 58 after a battle with breast cancer, began a Wall Street Journal article on Krupp's life.
She touched millions of women, and I'm sure they share my loss, said her husband Richard Zoglin, a theater critic for Time, in a statement.
As the entertainment editor for Glamour magazine, she interviewed stars like Meryl Streep and Madonna. She was also a contributing writer for Time magazine, USA Today, Town and Country and several other publications, reported the Sun Times.
Krupp's husband referred to her as a pioneering journalist, a champion of women and an amazing life force.
Her family set up the Charla Krupp Memorial Fund for Women in Media at the University of Illinois, the school she graduated from with a degree in journalism, reported NBC. Krupp is survived by her husband and her mother.
