For any fashion fans, the initials ‘ALT' are synonymous with all the fabulousness of couture.
André Leon Talley is contributing editor at Vogue, but he's so much more. A master of the bon mot, he's a firm fixture in the world of glamour, known for his trademark capes and kaftans on the red carpet.
This doco looks at his life – from growing up in South Carolina, and then hitting the New York Scene with aplomb – working for Andy Warhol and Diana Vreeland, partying at Studio 54, before ultimately ending up at Vogue.
Being a gay, black man making it in the world, Talley drew plenty of attention, both good and bad. But he's risen to being one of the most well-known, respected and beloved commentators in the industry. Childhood friends and A-list colleagues including Anna Wintour, Diane von Furstenberg and Tom Ford share stories and pay tribute to the man who says: "I don't live for fashion; I live for beauty and style. Fashion is fleeting, style remains."
