ANDRE LEON TALLEY LAID TO REST: Fashion icon Andre Leon Talley was laid to rest this past weekend. Celebrities like Anna Wintour, Martha Stewart, Naomi Campbell, Gayle King, Karlie Kloss, Marc Jacobs and Kimora Lee Simmons attended the funeral service, which was held at Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem on Friday (April 29th). During the service, Wintour spoke on her friendship with Talley. A source said, “She talked about their friendship, but what took her over was when she told the story about Andre crossing the Atlantic to be with her when her mother died. Her words were: ‘He crossed the Atlantic to be with me when my mother died,’ and that’s when she welled up.” The former creative director and one-time editor-at-large died back in January at a hospital in White Plains, NY. A cause of death has not been released. Talley was Vogue's news director from 1983-1987 before becoming Vogue's creative director in '88. He was 73.
