A Look At The Life, Career And Accomplishments Of Fashion Legend André Leon Talley

On Jan. 18, 2022, André Leon Talley passed away from a heart attack due to COVID-19 complications. The seminal, groundbreaking Vogue editor was only 73-years-old when he passed away in White Plains, NY, according to The Cut. Talley was no stranger to controversy, and made headlines when he detailed how his relationship with Vogue capo Anna Wintour became fractured in his recent memoir, “The Chiffon Diaries.” Perhaps that’s why the magazine was the last to report on his passing — a fact which did not go unnoticed by critics. This is what Vogue thought was appropriate to tweet 30 mins after the death of beloved fashion legend and former Vogue Creative Director and Editor-at-Large Andre Leon Talley was announced to have passed. Quelle coincidence. Interestingly tasteless as per usual. — Beguiling Bini Baddie (@Aizehinomo) January 19, 2022 …let @voguemagazine ’s continued silence on the death of its...

The CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund Awards Grants To Emerging Black Designers

The CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund has been reimagined this year to not only award prizes to the top winners, but for all ten finalists of emerging American fashion brands. According to Vogue, the fashion industry has taken steps to restructure its “business as usual” mindset in light of effects from the pandemic to be more supportive and inclusive of budding designers. “After an incredibly challenging time for all of us in fashion, especially here in New York, we’re thrilled that this year we are able to support all of our finalists,” Anna Wintour — global editorial director of Vogue and chief content officer of Condé Nast — shared. “It’s not only a vote of confidence in their talents, but in a brighter future for American fashion.” Instead of the CFDA /Vogue Fashion Fund’s normal format to grant one top prize and two awards to runners-up as it has in the past, this year all ten designers — who nearly all happen to be Black talent — will earn their grants and a year of mentorship from...

Meet the Beyoncé Fan Who Made History as the Youngest Cover Photographer For British Vogue

Beyoncé has a track record of allowing young, Black artists to get their shine and it was no different when it came to her cover for British Vogue. Thanks to her, Kennedi Carter made history as the youngest cover photographer in British Vogue’s history. Carter became a fan of Queen Bey at the mere age of three and now at 21-years-old, she is responsible for the stunning cover that the “Black Is King” creator shot with the magazine. “It feels like it dropped out of the sky,” said Carter. “I’m 21…I haven’t really had many opportunities like this.” According to Vogue , Beyoncé specifically requested that the shoot be led by a woman of color. Alongside the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, they came across Carter, a fine art photographer whose work is known for highlighting the “overlooked beauties of the Black experience.”   View this post on Instagram   Beyoncé by me for British Vogue Credits: #Beyoncé wears an @AlexanderMcQueen jacket, @AtsukoKudoLatex hotpants and...
