André Leon Talley, the towering former creative director and editor at large of Vogue magazine, has died. He was 73. Talley’s literary agent David Vigliano confirmed Talley’s death to USA Today late Tuesday, but no additional details were immediately available.
It is unclear what illness Talley was battling at the time of his death. Insider has reached out to Talley’s representatives for comment.
Talley appeared to reference personal struggles he was experiencing via Twitter in March 2021, writing: “I cannot thank you all enough for your outpouring of love and concern. I am healthy in mind and spirit and am quite grateful for the many messages from dear friends and extended community.”
It was during his time at Vogue, where he worked as a creative director and American editor-at-large through the Eighties and Nineties, that cemented Talley’s influential mark in the fashion world.
Retail industry veteran Ken Downing and former longtime fashion director at Neiman Marcus, said: “Elegant, Engaging and Entertaining. Style, Wit and Intelligence, the trifecta of Terrific! RIP Mr. André Leon Talley.”
