André Leon Talley To Leave Vogue

17 Feb

Vogue and flamboyant contributor André Leon Talley are parting ways after 3 fashion filled decades.  Word on the street is that Talley has signed on to host his own late night talk show.  The split is said to be amicable as Talley will remain somewhat involved with the fashion bible we call Vogue but wants to focus full-time on the talk show.  Is this the end of an era?  In my opinion YES!  Talley is synonymous with Vogue and all things fashion for that matter.  Do I look forward to his array of fashion forward talk show guests? YES! Can’t wait to watch!Andre

When I think of Vogue I will always think of Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington and André Leon Talley!

Grace Coddington’s New Book

28 Oct

Grace Coddington is one of the original players in this fashion game, fashionistas all over the world admire and respect the style icon and are anticipating the upcoming release of her memoir  Grace: A Memoir .   If you’re expecting a juicy tell all, you will be disappointed.  “I’m not telling secret stories” Coddington said “not writing ugly things to get back at anyone. This book’s not gossipy”.  The 71-year-old creative director of American Vogue took the high road on this one choosing to keep the gist of the book quite positive and that is very refreshing in such a cut throat industry. The book will be based from her lifelong diaries and will  include a few of her own hand drawn illustrations as well. Set for release on November 20th 2012 , the book is available at Amazon.
