It’s always painful when we lose someone close to us. Dancing With The Stars hostess Tyra Banks is going through a personal loss of her own and fans are concerned about her.

American fashion icon André Leon Talley passed away on January 18, 2022, and it seems that Tyra is taking the loss very hard.

Tyra Banks remembers her former costar fondly with a kind statement

If you’re a fan of America’s Next Top Model, then you might remember that André Talley was a judge on the show for a few cycles. He worked closely with Tyra Banks and it’s clear that the two forged a strong bond.

News outlets report that Talley passed away from COVID-19 related complications at age 73. Shortly after hearing the news, Tyra penned a very sweet note to him on her Instagram page.

“I had never experienced such a prolific person serving up a rare mix of fashion ‘fabulousness’ and real down-home southern comfort love until I met @andreltalley,” the model wrote. “Being in his presence was so magical. He made me smile, laugh and was a masterful teacher – a generous, genius historian. Scholar, colleague, effervescent spirit, legend…you are resting now, Dearest André. But your spirit, your ‘je ne sais quoi’, your VOICE – your laugh, your screams of effervescent, delightful joy…I hear it now. And will forever. We all will.”

The DWTS hostess’s fans left kind words for her on the post.

Talley played a role in Tyra Banks’ life and the fashion world too

André Leon Talley was definitely a larger-than-life force in the fashion world. Without him, we definitely wouldn’t have Vogue as we know it today. Talley served as Vogue‘s fashion news director from 1983-1987 and then editor-at-large from 1998-2013.

With such a strong grasp on the fashion world, it’s no wonder that he and Tyra Banks hit it off so well.

Since Tyra took over hosting duties on Dancing With The Stars, she’s worn some pretty elaborate costumes. On average, she has about two costumes for every episode.

We like to think that Talley will be with her in spirit if Dancing With The Stars comes back for Season 31.

The 48-year-old model is definitely mourning the loss of her friend right now, but fans hope she will bounce back soon. We’ve already seen a lot of death and grief in 2022 and we’re only three weeks into the new year. Hopefully, we don’t lose anyone else anytime soon.
