‘GoodFellas’ Star Paul Sorvino Dies at 83—His Wife Was By His Side

Rest in peace. The celebrity deaths of 2022 include Sidney Poitier and more stars, actors and singers who have passed away this year. The celebrity deaths of 2022 come after a year of loss in 2021, which saw the deaths of stars like Betty White, Joan Didion, Cicely Tyson, Prince Philip and Willie Garson. On the morning of December 31, 2021, Betty White—an actress and comedian best known for roles in TV shows like The Golden Girls and The Mary Tyler Moore Show—died at 99 years old. Her death came three weeks before her 100th birthday. “Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever,” White’s friend and agent Jeff Witjas said in a statement at the time. “I will miss her terribly and so will the animal world that she loved so much. I don’t think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.”

At SCAD, A Heartfelt Tribute to André Leon Talley and a Standout Class of 2022 Show

The Savannah College of Art and Design is situated in the Historic District of Savannah, Georgia. With its Spanish moss and grand façades, the city isn’t an obvious location for an art school, let alone one with a robust fashion program that has produced designers Christopher John Rogers and Recho Omondi. This weekend, the school hosted its annual SCAD Fashion event, featuring a tribute to André Leon Talley and the senior and graduate collections fashion show. Talley was a close friend and supporter of the university—he visited often and made the student experience exciting with his larger-than-life presence. During the tribute, Rogers received the André Leon Talley Award for his impressive rise in the industry.

Victor Glemaud's 2022 Met Gala Look Is an Homage to André Leon Talley

For so many years, André Leon Talley had such a strong presence at the Met Gala. There were all the times he worked the event, and then, towards the end of his time at Vogue, the years he hosted the magazine's livestream of the red carpet, offering his insightful, incisive commentary live from his perch at the top of the museum's steps. Though that relationship ended sourly, as he recounted in his 2020 memoir, Talley unequivocally left his mark on the event. For designer Victor Glemaud, the event's return to the first Monday in May was an opportunity to pay homage to the late editor, who passed away in January.

André Leon Talley Remembered With Wit and Soul

André Leon Talley, the towering and often flamboyant fashion editor and author who died in January at the age of 73, was remembered today at a service at his church, the Abyssinian Baptist in Harlem. Held before an estimated crowd of 700 people, the service reflected how Talley kept ties with his family in North Carolina and many childhood friends as he navigated and eventually rose to the top of the fashion world. Among the speakers were Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour, Diane Von Furstenberg, Carolina Herrera, and Naomi Campbell. Yet throughout there were references to other influences in Talley’s glittering orbit, including Karl Lagerfeld, Oscar de la Renta, and Yves Saint Laurent. And a cousin, Brian Nunn, mentioned Talley’s beloved maternal grandmother, Bennie Francis Davis, who raised him in Durham, North Carolina.
