Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell , and many others came to the farewell ceremony for Andre Leon Talley.

The fashion world shuddered in despair and grief from the loss of a bright star in the world of fashion journalism. But, of course, we are talking about Andre Leon Talley, who, throughout his life, carried ideas for the development and improvement of the industry. The famous author passed away on January 18, 2022; at that time, he was 73 years old  The ever-quoted editor of Vogue turned the tide of history with his talent back in 1983 as director of fashion news. Over time, he advanced through the levels to become the magazine’s first black creative director and later editor-in-chief.

On Friday, April 29, celebrities including Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, and Marc Jacobs paid tribute and recognition to him at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, where he has long honored his status as a fashion icon. 

Of course, on this occasion, celebrities remembered their iconic outfits, which Andre could appreciate from the magnitude of his taste and refined perception. But, in any case, each of them is ready to admit the main thing – with his departure, many moments of fashion life lost their meaning, and it was his gift of the author that could leave a bright mark on the history of fashion.

Blasberg continued: When I couldn’t sleep last night, I took out some old emails to remind myself.

His emails showed how much he loved his church, how accurate he was with instructions, how helpful he was at the beginning of my career, how much he loved Lisa Minelli, how He refused to tolerate idiots, how much he loved Michelle Obama, and how. By the end, he was a perfect southern gentleman.


He concluded by commenting on how lucky the world of fashion was to live among this great man.
