Before his death Tuesday night Andre Leon Talley had bad blood with Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour.
He wrote in his memoir, The Chiffon Trenches, that Wintour had abandoned him, but he hoped one day he would make up with her.
“I hope that she will find a way to apologize before I die…
Not a day goes by when I do not think of Anna Wintour.”
It seems he may have gotten his wish. According to the NY Post, the two made up before he died. An insider said,
“I do know they did make up, that their relationship was repaired recently—after everything that happened.”
In a touching tribute in Vogue today, Wintour described Talley as
“magnificent and erudite and wickedly funny—mercurial, too.”
She said there were she “complicated moments” in their decades-long relationship but Talley was a
“brilliant and compassionate man who was a generous and loving friend to me and to my family for many, many years.”
A Condé Nast source told Page Six,
“This is a very hard loss for Anna … It’s insane to read some of the comments online lambasting her over André. It’s so cruel.”
