André Leon Talley’s New Memoir Gets Bestseller Status

TALLEY-ING UP: André Leon Talley has locked in the number-six slot on The New York Times’ bestseller list for hardcover nonfiction with his new memoir.
”The Chiffon Trenches” created a firestorm of publicity in recent weeks, primarily due to Talley’s critique of his former boss, Vogue’s Anna Wintour. The book centers on his storied career, but it also addresses other aspects of his life like sexual abuse, weight struggles and ageism. Consumer interest in the book was so strong that his publisher Ballantine moved up the release date to May 19 from September and greenlighted a second run before it was officially out. The strategy seems to have worked, given Talley’s swift ascent to the bestseller list. Glennon Doyle ranked first for “Untamed,” followed by Michelle Obama for “Becoming.”
Talley’s recent interviews with Gayle King on “CBS This Morning” and  Tamron Hall on her eponymous talk show surely helped to sell a few books. But Talley said he was still surprised to make the bestseller list in seven days.
“Thrilled but kind of stunned by the whole thing,” Talley said, adding the accolade has been “somewhat distilled by this whole horror that has happened in Minneapolis [referring to the death of George Floyd

André Leon Talley’s Book to Be Released Earlier Than Planned

ANDRÉ ON DEMAND: After André Leon Talley kicked off a firestorm of publicity last week with his memoir “The Chiffon Trenches: A Memoir,” the book’s publisher Ballantine has moved up the release date to May 19 from September.
Originally slated to hit stores this week, last month the book’s debut was shelved until the fall due to the COVID-19 shutdown. Recent media coverage — much of which described in detail the great divide between Talley and his former boss Anna Wintour — upended that plan, after consumers’ interest ramped up. Copies of Talley’s tome had already been scheduled to be printed this month. A spokeswoman for Penguin Random House, of which Ballantine is a division, declined to comment about projected sales Tuesday.
Talley’s decades-long career in fashion also included volunteering at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, and posts at Women’s Wear Daily, Vanity Fair and Andy Warhol’s Factory. By his account, Talley has dealt with ageism, racism and weight discrimination. “People have done things to me that I have forgiven them for. There are things in the book that you can’t imagine — the racism, everything. You don’t even understand how much I’ve gone through to get to be 71

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.
Wearing a “Dapper Dan”-embossed gold-embroidered caftan, André Leon Talley had prime seating in the center of Spring Place. Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond also sailed in to listen to what the 23-time Grand Slam champion had to say and to be among the first to see the S by Serena spring collection. Before 13 models stepped out for a brief presentation, Williams described the effort as “a fantastic, different, small collection.” She also noted there were vegan leather styles — a sign of her company’s commitment to sustainability.
Afterward, Jean-Raymond said while he does not know Williams personally, he does know Wintour, who invited him while at a dinner last week. “I’m obviously a huge fan of Serena’s so I just came out to support. She takes a very different approach than most celebrities, who kind of dabble in the fashion space. She really employs good friends of mine like Kesha McLeod. People who really know the space and have helped her elevate the brand, the collections

Andre and Parker van Noord: A Model Father-Son Duo

A famous saying about apples and where they fall vis-à-vis the tree seems to apply this season, especially in the case of Andre and Parker van Noord. The Dutch father-son duo walked the Umit Benan show, together for the first time, in Paris.
Andre started his career at age 21 and worked with some of the industry’s most famous photographers, including Hedi Slimane and Peter Lindbergh, so he’s got more than enough tips for Parker as he gets his start in the business.
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
