A Conversation with André Leon Talley
Join us for a Live-Streamed Conversation with André Leon Talley, for decades the right hand of Anna Wintour, protégé of Andy Warhol, fashion advisor to Michelle Obama, confidant of Karl Lagerfeld, and friend to the world’s most renowned designers from Halston to Yves Saint Laurent, Oscar de la Renta, and Ralph Lauren.
A cultural icon and Brown alumnus, André was the indomitable creative director at Vogue during the magazine’s dominance as the world’s fashion bible and the most powerful man in fashion. The author of four books and the subject of an award-winning documentary, André’s latest book, “The Chiffon Trenches: A Memoir,” raced to the top of the New York Times bestseller list and generated a firestorm when released in May.
André will share with us his stories of the often brutal landscape of fashion, rampant with racism and white privilege, discuss his rise to the upper echelons of the industry, his upbringing in the segregated South, his unlikely but devoted friendship with Anna Wintour, and so much more.
