Legendary Vogue editor André Leon Talley passed away on Tuesday, January 18, TMZ confirmed. He was 73 years old. 

The style veteran reached the top of Vogue‘s masthead in the ‘80s, first becoming the fashion news director and eventually the creative director, a role he left in 1995 before returning to Vogue three years later as its editor-at-large, a position he held until 2013. He was Vogue’s first African American male creative director. 

Talley was a fashion journalist through and through, having contributed to titles like W, Women’s Wear Daily, The New York Times, and Interview Magazine. In May 2020 he released his second memoir, The Chiffon Trenches. (His first autobiography, A.L.T.: A Memoir, was released in 2003.)
