The Gospel According to Andre

The Gospel According to Andre

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."
