THE QUEEN TO ANNA'S THRONE: ANDRE LEON TALLEY TALKS UGGS

Photobucket
Andre Leon Talley will always deliver a good line or two although he actually doesn’t say much at all.
But in august he was interviewed by Time Out New York and gave us an insight into his home and work life. And as ever, each quote is a gem in itself!

On his style:
‘You cannot live your life in the elitist world of fashion and not step out or you’re disconnected. You have to realise that fashion is not the endgame. I started wearing Uggs two years ago. It’s a cosy shoe. Also, they’re only $98.' In fact, at home, he wears 'Juicy Couture shorts, a Ralph Lauren polo shirt and Uggs.' But don't expect him to wear Crocs. 'I draw the line at Uggs.’

On the ‘skinny’ Vogue offices:
‘The Vogue offices are full of what I call very angular women wearing stilettos, and maybe that’s just the consciousness — that people think that they need this look when they work at Vogue. But Grace Coddington does not fit that mould and she’s elegant. Look at Michelle Obama, she’s the most fashionable woman in America. But she’s not a fashion plate.’

On his love of Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia:
‘I only watch MSNBC for the news. And reruns of The Golden Girls. It’s my favourite show. They have a sense of being at home, always wearing different robes and nightgowns. For me it’s one of the greatest shows ever. Helmut Lang loves The Golden Girls too. He told me he used to rush home to watch it. It’s very uplifting and fresh, it just takes you away from the fashionable world.’

Oh, I love that..."I draw the line at UGGS." As do I - never will you see me donning Crocs; I can hardly stand to look at them, in fact! :)
