It is with great sadness we announce the passing of André Leon Talley on January 18, 2022 in New York. Mr. Talley was the larger-than-life, longtime creative director at Vogue during its rise to dominance as the world's fashion bible. Over the past five decades as an international icon was a close confidant of Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Paloma Picasso, Diane von Furstenberg, Bethann Hardison and he had a penchant for discovering, nurturing and celebrating young designers.  His byline appeared in Vanity Fair, HG, Interview, Ebony and Women's Wear Daily and he was the editor of Numero Russia. Mr. Talley wrote several books, including Valentino, A.L.T.: A Memoir, A.L.T. 365+ and Little Black Dress for Assouline, and contributed to Valentino: At the Emperor’s Table and Cartier Panthère. He was the subject of the documentary The Gospel According to André and his recent memoir, The Chiffon Trenches became a New York Times Best Seller. In 2014, he was named artistic director of Zappos Couture, and he has been on the Board of Trustees of Savannah College of Art and Design since 2000. Mr. Talley was awarded the Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the French Republic in 2020 and the North Carolina Governor's award for literature in 2021. He was a long-standing member of Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church. 🕊

Congrats to the man ON FIRE #JoeBrow! @impossiblekings named your KILLER lyric the winner for the 1st line in Verse 3! 

Listen to The Kings SING our Song-In-Progress now at link in bio! 

Big shouts out to @bluezman4 #Blue & #Krissy !  Kudos to all!

Now we get to write the 2nd line in VIII! Take note -  easy-to-sing lyrics are the words of the day! We've got a great #melody - take a listen and then sing your lines to the melody. If you're stumbling over too many syllables or you can't fit all the words in, consider... reconsidering your word choice ;~). Some great songwriter once said, "If you can't sing it, then it's a poem!" ;~))

We are so inspired by all your beautiful sentiments and incredible ideas! Can't wait to see your lyrical miracles! Submit now!
