On Friday, former artistic director of Vogue André Leon Talley was laid to relaxation.
His Harlem funeral service was attended by massive names like Naomi Campbell, Anna Wintour, Gayle King, Karlie Kloss, and Kimora Lee Simmons, who paid their ultimate respects.
Naomi instructed “Extra,” “André Leon Talley… he loved this church, and this is where I used to come and he would love it.”
Kimora wiped away tears as she spoke about Talley, saying, “He’s our friend and our family, and I’m glad that you all are here, and we just want to honor his legacy.”
King opened up in regards to the “moving” ceremony, saying, “Anna Wintour was brilliant. Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Naomi Campbell, and everybody got choked up when they spoke about him. He was one of a kind in the best of ways.”
Talley died in January on the age of 73.
He had been hospitalized in White Plains, New York.
There had been conflicting reviews about his reason for loss of life. His longtime pal Dr. Yvonne Cormier instructed the Houston Chronicle that Talley died from COVID-19 issues, whereas Vogue reviews he suffered a coronary heart assault.
An official reason for loss of life has not been launched.
