A cause of death has not been released, In addition to his work at Vogue, Talley served as creative director for both Tommy Hilfiger and Magic Johnson’s Essence fashion lines before opening a bridal business in Asheville, N.C., in 2016. He also recently appeared on a number of reality-TV shows, including Bravo’s “Fashion Queens,” E!’s “Botched” and CBS’ “The American Baking Competition.”

In recent years, Talley became known for his work with the Andy Warhol Foundation. He also announced plans to publish a novel inspired by his early experiences in the fashion industry.

André Leon Talley was born on May 10, 1949, in Washington D.C., where he attended the nearby Howard University to study journalism and literature. He would go on to work as a reporter for The Times-Herald in D.C., before moving back to New York City in 1974 where he soon landed a job as a fashion writer for Women’s Wear Daily.

He quickly rose through the fashion ranks, landing at Vogue in 1975 where he worked alongside editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland and was eventually recruited by Anna Wintour to become the magazine’s fashion news director in 1987.

After leaving American Vogue in 1997, Talley began working as editor-at-large for the magazine and contributing to fashion coverage for numerous outlets, including W and Vanity Fair. He officially retired from Vogue in 2013 after more than 20 years with the magazine.

In 2014, he launched his own online magazine titled “The Transom” where he shared his views on style, art and design.

Talley is survived by his sister and two brothers. His mother, who was reportedly 99 years old, died in September 2017.
