André Leon Talley was a towering figure in the world of fashion. The greatly influential multi-hyphenate worked as a fashion journalist for the American Vogue for decades and continued to write for a number of other big-name publications including, Women’s Wear Daily, W and a brief stint for the New York Times.

Talley was most associated with his time at Vogue, where he served as the magazine’s news director, creative director and at one point, its editor-at-large, working closely with editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. Business of Fashion has reported that the fashion journalist suffered from a heart attack and died at a hospital in White Plains, New York.
