When André Leon Talley go to tennis practice, he doesn’t, as he said in September number (2009 .)), do so in any pair of old tennis shorts and shirt, but in Damon Dash pants and a Ralph Lauren shirt, with wrists adorned with a vintage diamond Piaget watch from 1960s.

Wrapped around his neck was a Louis Vuitton scarf, along with a set of Vuitton-branded hand luggage. By suggesting he exercise three years ago, Vogueeditor-in-chief of Anna Wintour, or “Miss Wintour” as Talley called his then-boss, “consecrated” him to health and saved his life by doing so. “So what Miss Wintour said, feel free.”

Of course, the relationship between the two has deteriorated considerably. Former creative director and then editor of Vogue destroyed his former boss printed in his own memoirs, Chiffon Groove (2020) earlier, months later, defended Wintour when she was accused of racism. Last year, he said they were still friends.
