Fashion journalist and icon André Leon Talley died at a hospital in White Plains, New York, Tuesday. He was 73.
For decades, he was the larger-than-life creative director and editor-at-large of Vogue magazine, considered the fashion bible.
At 6' 6", Talley held court in the world of high fashion. Wearing dapper bespoke suits, robes, capes and caftans, he was regal presence. "You can be aristocratic without having been born into an aristocratic family," he would say.
