André Leon Talley:
Curator, author, mentor and contributing writer and editor for Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, and Interview, André Leon Talley has been a major influencer in the worlds of fashion and mass culture for the last 30 years. He has served as editor-at-large and creative director for Vogue, and in 2000, was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from Savannah College of Art and Design — an award that was renamed in his honor the next year. Talley has written extensively on fashion and popular culture. In 2003, the Council of Fashion Designers of America awarded Talley the Eugenia Sheppard Award for Excellence in Fashion Journalism.

André Leon Talley is the author of several books including: A.L.T.: A Memoir, A.L.T. 365+, and Little Black Dress. This year, Rizzoli published Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style, a sumptuous monograph tracing the life and legacy of fashion luminary Oscar de la Renta, by André Leon Talley with a forward by Anna Wintour.

The Himmel Award:
The Katonah Museum of Art Himmel Award is named in honor of Betty Himmel, who was instrumental in defining the direction and mission of the Katonah Museum of Art and has served as an arts advocate and community leader for many years. The award recognizes creators, conceivers, radical thinkers and risk-takers who have demonstrated their ability to incite, excite and provoke new thinking in the arts.
