Vogue legend Andre Leon Talley had the stars coming out to honor his life and to celebrate his final home-going.
The funeral was held on a Thursday and was very exclusive—those in attendance were admitted by invite only. Anna Wintour, Martha Stewart, Naomi Campbell, Gayle King, Karlie Kloss, Marc Jacobs, Kimora Lee Simmons, and many others attended, TMZ reported.
The 73-year-old former creative director and one-time editor-at-large passed away in January at a hospital located in White Plains, NY. His cause of death has not been released.
Talley was a big name in Vogue’s vision and direction during the ’80s and ’90s. He was the magazine’s news director between ’83 – and ’87, which was just before he became Vogue’s creative director in ’88.
He is also credited for his work in getting more people of color recognized on the runway, which specifically includes Black models.
