In an exclusive statement sent to ET Online, “Dancing with the Stars” host Tyra Banks shared a touching tribute for André Leon Talley. The duo worked alongside one another on Banks’ hit show “America’s Next Top Model” for four cycles (14-18) between 2010-2011, according to Talley’s IMDb page. The reality show continued without Talley once he left, but it seems he left quite the impression on Banks as her statement was filled with love.

“I adored Andre. Before meeting him, I had never experienced such a prolific person serving up a rare mix of fashion ‘fabulousness’ and real down-home southern comfort love. Being in his presence was so magical. He made me smile, laugh and was a masterful teacher – a genius historian,” Banks said. She went on to praise his many roles, while also highlighting what she’ll remember most. Banks continued, “Scholar, colleague, effervescent spirit, legend…you are resting now, Dearest Andre. But your spirit, your je ne sais quoi, your iconic voice…I hear it now. And will forever. We all will.” RIP, André!
