ALT zhushing Bee Schaffer's heavenly Nina Ricci
why don't You?add the word dreckitude to your vocabulary.
trust me-you will find yourself saying it whether you are desirous or not-dreckitude abounds.
No, this is not Jay-Z
The irreverent irrepressible ANDRE LEON TALLEY is holding court on America's Next Top Model-Consort to Tyra Banks? -For the moment it would seem.
I can not help but think ALT's mentor- Diana Vreeland- would be-
Loving it. Would she have?
I can not think of anyone that could read the tea leaves of fashion like the great DV- great swami of fashion. Her Why don't you? crops up on someone's blog at least every few days and I love it. I suggested MORE DV in the year 2010. Read my post Here. Andre Leon Talley may be the next best thing. DV would certainly have been ready for her close up-ALT is.
Larger than life- indeed Charming, part sage- part snark, ALT is off to new heights with his 5 minutes of air time each week on Next Top Model. I- for one- am watching just to get a dose of Vreeland's why don't you- (who knows what you might do?)
I did get to meet him about 10 years ago in Raleigh at a luncheon. He is a North Carolina native-Durham that is-and maintains ties here-mostly lending his celebrity to local charities. Most admirable.
