Picture this in slow motion with Delibes’ Flower Duet serving as this scene’s soundtrack. It’s the only way. Page Six says that Vogue’s own dreckitude assassin Andre Leon Talley was preciously perched at the end of a bench in the front row of Costello Tagliapietra’s fashion show on Friday afternoon. ALT sat there silently judging all of those around him behind his sunglasses.
And then like a scene out of the sequel to Scarlet Takes A Tumble, everybody but Andre got off the bench at once. The witness says that ALT was at the wrong end of a see saw fail and he hit the ground. A few seconds after ALT hit the ground, a circle of quakes formed around him and quickly spread to the rest of the room knocking every bitch off their feet. If ALT goes down, we all go down! Okay, that last part didn’t happen, but I’d like to think it did.
The witness went on to say, “He fell onto his side, and security immediately pulled him to his feet.”
You better believe that somebody got fired for this. When ALT is through with them, they’ll be lucky to get a job folding poly-blend toddler sweaters in the stock room of a Gap Kids outlet. Actually, that sounds like a better gig than being ALT’s assistant.
And since we’re on the subject of international fashion icons of this generation, here’s a few pictures of Grace Jones at the US Open yesterday.
