In Memoriam: André Leon Talley
André Leon Talley was one of a kind. In his luxuriously gregarious style. In his dramatic pronouncements and encyclopedic knowledge of fashion history. And in his dizzyingly fabulous career that blazed a trail through the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, Interview, Women’s Wear Daily and most famously, Vogue.
Talley, who passed away January 19, was Tory Daily’s Cat’s Meow in 2013. He shared his singular point of view on high-end sheets, LBDs and Patti Labelle’s best decade. Read the original post here.
Best advice I’ve ever received…
In 1974, Diana Vreeland told me to stay in New York — don’t go home for Christmas.
Best advice I’ve ever given…
Never give up the dream.
Soundtrack of my life…
Cara Niro and Seventies Patti LaBelle
Movie I never get tired of watching…
A most memorable Little Black Dress is…
The one my grandmother had in her closet — simple wool with long sleeves.
A wink or a smile?
