Andre Leon Talley Won’t Dip His Quill In The Company Ink

“No, no, no. I was just into my magazines and the drawings. I had a very strict upbringing, almost puritanical. I lived there all the way through college. I was in my grandmother’s house, and I respected that! [I] had very gay experiences, yes, I swear on my grandmother’s grave that I never slept with…

Andre Leon Talley Interviews Quvenzhané Wallis, World Collectively Goes “Aww”

Vaunted Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley doesn’t suffer fools — either at his magazine job, or as a former judge on “America’s Next Top Model.” Which is why it’s so sweet to see him shuffle so uncomfortably in his interview with pint-sized “Beasts of the Southern Wild” phenom Quvenzhané Wallis. Talley had the nine-year-old Nicki Minaj…

So, Beyonce Totally Crashed The Met Ball

If you’re Beyonce, you can pretty much do whatever you want to do — and that includes crashing one of the most important events on the New York social calendar, the Met Costume Institute Ball. It seems Bey wasn’t planning on going at all, but then that purple Givenchy gown showed up at her house…

Andre Leon Talley Out, Kelly Cutrone In In “ANTM”?

Who can understand the whims and desires of International Top Supermodel and Media Mogul Tyra Banks? For the past several cycles she’s had the inimitable Vogue Contributing Editor Andre Leon Talley as a panel judge for the show, but now rumor has it that he’ll be replaced by PR guru/life coach/”The City” HBIC Kelly Cutrone.

André Leon Talley Does The Green Thing, Too

“At Vogue we’re going to have certain issues devoted to green. We’ve asked certain designers to make green clothes. I don’t think everyone should be wearing hip sacks and burlap blouses. There’s still room for luxury … You have to wake up and be conscious of everything, the way you dispose of things. I do…

“Top Model”‘s Classy Makeover Is Missing One Thing

“America’s Next Top Model” is supposedly getting a “high-class makeover” for its 15th “cycle,” which premieres September 8th. Last season, the long-running series debuted a new judge, Vogue’s posh-accented and imposing Andre Leon Talley, and he, well, seemed a touch out of place amongst the otherwise campy production. So this season, instead of winning a…

Andre Leon Talley Makes Me Slightly More Interested In “ANTM”

I’ll just go ahead and put it right out there: I do not watch “America’s Next Top Model.” Never have, and never had any plans to, until now. I could seriously just sit and watch Vogue’s Andre Leon Talley all the diggity day long. I love his wink-wink faux-Euro accent (he’s from South Carolina,…

Judge Shake-Up On “ANTM” Sounds Too Far-Fetched To Believe

Back when former supermodel Paulina Porizkova was ousted from her position as judge on “America’s Next Top Model,” we gave you our dream replacement list that included Naomi Campbell, Agyness Deyn, and Kate Moss. Never did we imagine that Kimora Lee Simmons would return to the show as a permanent judge after leaving the first…

Quote Of The Day: André Leon Talley Loves “The Golden Girls”

“They have a sense of being at home, always wearing different robes and nightgowns. For me it’s one of the greatest shows ever. Helmut Lang loves ‘The Golden Girls’ too. He told me he used to rush home to watch it. It’s very uplifting and fresh, it just takes you away from the fashionable world.”

What Andre Leon Talley Wears To Exercise

As I said before, there might not be a point in going to see “The September Issue,” since so many clips from the documentary are available online. But you’ll find me at the movie theater on Friday night, when the movie comes to NYC, especially after watching the above clip in which fabulou…

André Leon Talley Thinks You Look Like A “Beast” In High Heels

“Designers with an obsession for towering torture chambers, often poorly designed for the well-being of the foot, must get a reality check.

I, for one, am over the mania for the high, high heel.

Too many career women look like a herd of fashion beasts, aping one another in impractical shoes.”Vogue

Anna Wintour Responds To Being Called A “Cold Bitch”

“60 Minutes” devoted a 13-minute segment to profiling Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, this weekend. Journalist Morley Safer described Wintour as “a name that strikes terror in some, loathing in others, and transforms some into obsequious toadies.” Not that his observation is incorrect, but, geez, what a way to introduce someone.

It didn’t…
