    She was one of the best friends and muses of the prestigious fashion editor Andre Leon Talley and now Naomi Campbell has been able to pay tribute to him with a wonderful all white look to go to your funeral held at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in the New York neighborhood of Harlem.

    To celebrate the life of André Leon Talley, the model has chosen to leave aside the color black (the protocol for this type of event) and has dazzled her arrival at the church with a white dress with gold accessories and a spectacular white feather coat, all by Schiaparelli.

    To finish off such an angelic and avant-garde look, Naomi has opted for a precious headdress with which she thus became one of the best dressed of the event. In addition, she did not hesitate to speak inside the church and dedicate a few words of love to her friend André.

    Andre Leon Talley, A Celebration of Life

    This has been the name that has been given to this celebration to which designer Carolina Herrera and fashion editor Anna Wintour were not missing. In fact, the latter also went out to read and said that André had flown to the other side of the Atlantic to be with her when her mother died. A gesture he would never forget.

    I would like to be remembered as someone who managed to make a difference in the lives of young people, someone who nurtured them and taught them to pursue their dreams and their careers, to leave a legacy”, said André Leon Talley. And so it has been during this funeral in memory of his life and his work to which family and friends from the fashion industry attended.

    Talley, in addition to showing his great aesthetic sense, took advantage of his position as creative editor to denounce racism. He lived it in his own flesh: grew up in a town where 90% of the people were white. She was a community speaker and his echo turned out to be one of the most relevant. He also fought for the equal rights of LGTBIQ + people and made African-American culture visible within American society, expanding his mission to the rest of the globe.
