Andre Leon Talley

No wonder Andre Leon Talley didn't have time to check that his fly was buttoned up all the way....not only was the larger than life Vogue Editor at Large covering the shows for Vogue, he was appearing on numerous segments of Metro Channel's Full Frontal Fashion (where he was the only commentator oozing knowledge and enthusiasm for what he was seeing), acting as stylist for Sandra Bullock (who was sitting front row center at Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan), and also serving as consultant to Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons on their Baby Phat and Phat Farm collections. Oh, and I forgot one more 'duty'----according to Anna Wintour in her Editor's Letter for October, he gives the 'best dressed editor' clothing and wardrobe advice as well. Phew.....with a schedule like that, I'd forget to do a few things as well!

You gotta love him for his moxy, and his wonderful comments....the best, as written in WWD on Monday, was that if he knew a picture of him sitting with his fly unbuttoned was going to be published, he would have put a "big old diamond broach there."
