André Leon Talley: 'My story is a fairytale, and in every fairytale there is evil and darkness'

As US Vogue’s editor-at-large, he was Anna Wintour’s right-hand man. But then, he reveals in our exclusive interview, he was ‘thrown under the bus’ • Read an extract from Talley’s explosive new memoir André Leon Talley – legendary fashion editor, prince of excess – has taken a fair few luxury holidays in his time. First-class flights to Biarritz, private jets, shopping trips to Florence by Concorde. But sometimes he keeps it simple and spends a quiet weekend with his friend, the shoe designer M...

"... (sizeism, ageism — and, above all, racism, a recurring and painful through-line) to his own failed lap band surgery and inability to have a romantic relationship (he was abused as a child by a neighbor), it’s as if simply acknowledging the existence of these facts — the way they marred the otherwise gorgeous vistas of the industry as it unfurled in his mind — is enough.

Issa Rae Calls Out The Impact Black Culture Has Had On Fashion

For the first time ever, the CFDA Awards took over another borough, bringing with it designers, models, and a whole crop celebrities, including Issa Rae, the event's first Black female host. To kick off the evening at the Brooklyn Museum, Rae noted that she was really there to "public drag Andre Leon Talley for not inviting her to his watch party for RuPaul's Drag Race " and joked that the audience consisted of "two Olsens and a six-pack of Kardashians."But on a more serious (as serious for a c...

Fashion icon André Leon Talley reflects on life as black, gay man

“The Gospel According to André” follows the gregarious, larger-than-life editor, stylist and fashion icon André Leon Talley. Yet unlike previous glossy docs such as “The September Issue,” “Gospel” is far more than a dressed-up Vogue infomercial. Fashion fans may know Talley as Vogue editrix Anna Wintour’s perennially caftan-clad sidekick. And “Gospel” showcases the 68-year-old’s trademark...

Count Diddy Won at the 2017 Met Gala

The Met Gala is the annual meeting of people who Anna Wintour can still stand. It is an assemblage of the most ferocious people in music, media, movies and more. It is a place that we all act like we wouldn’t like to be invited but we’re lying and we too wanna put on costumes outside of October 31. Every year, the Met Gala dares everyone to outdo each other. At this event, you can come looking like shrubbery or a mushroom and you will receive applause. Please feast your eyes upon Queen Rihanna. ...

André Leon Talley's Interviews Are Always the Best Part of the Met Gala

Melania Trump Will Definitely Be In Vogue (Again)

Update: Well, we didn't quite see this one coming. Anna Wintour, Condé Nast's artistic director and longtime Vogue editor-in-chief, told The Wall Street Journal that we'll be seeing more of First Lady Melania Trump in the glossy. "We have a tradition of always covering whoever is the first lady at Vogue and I can’t imagine that this time would be any different,” Wintour told the publication. She's got a point, but some might argue that this administration may call for an exception to that hallo...

Hey, Remember That Time Melania Trump Covered Vogue?

It's been a while since I've actually flipped through all of the issues of Vogue that line the floorboards of my bedroom, but when I stumbled across the February 2005 glossy with Melania Trump on the cover, I set it right back down. I'm only joking. Curiosity killed the cat, and I shuffled to the profile that stretched across 14 pages of the magazine. And when I tell you how much money was #SaltBae sprinkled throughout just about every hook, line, and kicker, you'd think the family was printing...

"Was Queen Elizabeth hot?/Confirm. She was very stylish in the ’60s."

"She had a fabulous figure, fabulous waist and big bosoms, and she looked good in her clothes."That's André Leon Talley, doing a "Confirm or Deny" interview with Maureen Dowd. I'm putting this up for Meade because just yesterday we had a discussion about whether it's ignorant or jauntily jocose to put "bosom" in the plural (when speaking of only one person) and because the interview — the whole thing — is very amusing. The OED takes my side on "bosoms": "In recent use, a woman's breasts. colloq....

André Leon Talley Distances Himself from Trump, Says 'I Don’t Want Melania Trump to Fail'

The End of Political Correctness

The End of Political Correctness May this be the end of Political Correctness Political Correctness is a danger to us all! Over the last few decades, we have become curiously, annoyingly and extremely politically correct and certain words have become absolutely taboo. That which was once acceptable is now considered offensive and there are times when you just don’t know what to say for fear of offending anyone or everyone around you. In the early 1970s, I was bussed to an all–black high school...
