Wouldn’t Tom Ford just be the best dad ever? (Other than our own dad, of course. Hi Dad!) It’s been nearly six months since the birth of his son, Alexander John Buckley Ford (he just goes by Jack), and the designer sat down with André Leon Talley to dish on how he’s juggling fatherhood with his responsibilities at his eponymous label. Short answer? By waking up really, really early.
Contributing editor at Vogue, editor at large for Numéro Russia, late night talk show host — if it sounds like André Leon Talley has a lot on his plate right now, that’s because, well, he really does. At 63, the front row fixture is taking on a whole slew of new projects, prompting many to speculate that he might be ready to end his 30 year run at Condé Nast. In today’s WWD, however, Talley quashes this rumor and explains his real motivation behind building his resumé.
If anyone in fashion has the clout, connections, and charisma to carry their own late night talk show, it’s André Leon Talley. Clearly we’re not the only ones who think so, since the Vogue contributing editor has recently inked a deal to develop just such a series, reports WWD.
We don’t need to tell you that 9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, the youngest-ever nominee for Best Actress, is going to be the cutest thing to hit the red carpet at this year’s Academy Awards. But we will show you that she will be, by means of this adorable video of the Beasts of the Southern Wild actress meeting with Vogue‘s André Leon Talley.
For those who’ve seen the documentary Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, Vogue‘s Anna Wintour and André Leon Talley are noticeably missing. Pourquoi? (For those who haven’t seen the flick, go watch it now!
Last night, we had the honor of viewing Laura Smalls‘ spring 2013 collection. The Michelle Obama-approved designer sent out a smattering of tailored looks, and sitting right across from us in the front row was André Leon Talley in a burgundy ensemble, and wait, Uggs? Indeed.
We haven’t heard much about Beyoncé since the Met Gala — which was a whole two weeks ago! — so we’re more than pleased to share a few updates on Queen B.
Andre Leon Talley has gone and gotten himself his very own reality show. WE ARE EXCITED.
It’s a post for another day, but how painfully awkward is it to watch Giuliana Rancic interview celebrities (and fill dead space) for a non-stop period of 120 minutes? So painfully awkward! If you were smart and perhaps watched on mute, you would have missed the fact that she asked several lady celebs (Sofia Vergara! Elizabeth Banks!) to name their least favorite body parts — on live television. She actually did that! Anyway, the good news is that while Elizabeth Banks was discussing her runners’ feet, Vogue ambassador and cape connoisseur Andre Leon Talley was busy chatting up Melissa McCarthy. Thank goodness!
We already knew that Vogue contributing editor (and living fashion legend) Andre Leon Talley was not a fan of the Republican candidates for president, but what we didn’t know is the specificity with which his rage for them is peppered.
Andre Leon Talley is none too pleased with the GOP candidates, and the New Hampshire Republican primary pushed the fashion editor over the proverbial edge.
They say all good things come to an end, but we’re going to be in a seriously bad mood if Vogue contributing editor Andre Leon Talley leaves America’s Next Top Model.
Tyra Banks and Andre Leon Talley‘s “Fa-Fa-Fa-Fashion” videos might be the best thing to happen to the internet since cute cat videos, but only because the two are so hilariously, whackadoodley, insane. This week’s edition focuses on shapewear, that flesh-colored category of undergarments meant to squish all your unsightly lumps and bumps like an expensive and human-sized form of sausage casing.
We think at some point, while Tyra Banks was a teenager modeling in Paris, she might have missed one or two lessons on basic addition and subtraction. Because in her new video on stilettos for Type F, she sort of fudges the numbers when trying to explain that the height of a platform can actually lessen the impact of the height of a heel.
Tyra Banks and Andre Leon Talley are probably our favorite fashion couple. Watching them is pure entertainment — they talk about nothing and everything all at once and it’s just fa-fa-fa-fun. Really! And their take on the Little Black Dress is bit of a revelation.
This wasn’t just any week, this was our birthday week! Happy birthday to us! To celebrate, we bring you an all-important recap of the (birthday!) week that was featuring John Galliano, Kate Middleton, Tyra Banks and more. Yay birthday!
