“Dear André,” she began, “words cannot describe what it feels like knowing you are no longer with us in the physical form, like everyone who loves you my heart skipped a beat.” She added that she reached out to designer Diane Von Furstenberg, who told her that Talley “went peacefully without pain.”

There is “so much to say but can’t say all,” she wrote, reflecting on some of their past experiences together, which include “flying in helicopters in Brazil and landing in a football field in a storm, to running around Moscow buying Russian dolls and typical Russian hats, to dancing around in my hotel room in Paris.”

Campbell reflected on a trip the two took to Nigeria in 2019. “Everyone said you would cancel on me last minute and I refused to believe .. and there you came to Lagos with a wheelchair and all, and you embraced everyone and everyone embraced you,” she shared. “You were animated, fun and seeing all the young Nigerian creatives sitting at your feet taking notes with admiration, to going to church on Easter Sunday in Lagos of which you said coming to Africa was like an epiphany for you .. Seeing you so happy and in your zone is how I choose to remember you.”

“Your unconditional love and support has never wavered, from encouraging me to pick up the phone and calling Anna Wintourand asking for my first American voguecover September issue,” she added, “to giving me the confidence to learn the Michael Jacksondance for our super bowl sobe commercial .. to just sitting in bed ordering room service watching tv, you were Andre a ray of light filled with laughter and positivity that played a huge impact of our ever lasting family ship.”
