Fashion icon Andre Leon Talley has passed away at the age of 73.
Talley died at a hospital in White Plains, New York, according to TMZ. The cause of death has not yet been revealed.
Often clad in giant, soaring gowns, Talley was a towering figure in the heyday of America’s most prominent fashion magazine, Vogue. He headed the news department from 1983 to 1987, then became creative director of the glossy publication in 1988, and then moved on to the role of editor-in-chief.
In a memoir published in mid-2020, the former editor burned his boss Anna Wintour. He accused her of abandoning him after he was “no longer of any value to her”. She didn’t even call on his birthday, he said.
“I have great emotional and psychological scars from my relationship with this noble and influential woman,” he wrote at the time. “The kindness of people is simple. No, she is not capable”.
