Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond, André Leon Talley Check Out Serena Williams’ Collection

BOX SEATS FOR SERENA: Wth 73 singles titles, Serena Williams is accustomed to having a good number of fans in her corner and that appeared to hold serve Wednesday morning, during her Q&A with Anna Wintour.

What do you think about your son following in your footsteps?
Andre van Noord: The industry is hard on people. Only time will tell if he makes it. The only thing that a father can wish for is that his son will do better than himself. Otherwise, there is no use in doing the same thing.
Did you ever think you would walk a runway show alongside your father?
Parker van Noord: I didn’t really think we would walk a show together, but when I went to my castings, the first thing the casting director said was, “A-ha, you’re the son of Andre.” I did not imagine I could be booked, too. So I hoped we would walk a show together and
