Andre Leon Talley Interviews Quvenzhane Wallis (And Gives Vogue The Kiss Off)

Andre Leon Talley Interviews Quvenzhane Wallis (And Gives Vogue The Kiss Off)

In this week’s totally non-essential news, Vogue Magazine’s Andre Leon Talley recently did a video interview with Quvenzhane Wallis for the magazine. Actually, I should say formerly of Vogue Magazine.

It was revealed today in news reports that, after 30 years, Talley has left the magazine as contributing editor and it’s because of his new TV ventures, including hosting a late night TV talk show in the works, which Tambay reported about HERE.

Turns out that Vogue chief Anna Wintour absolutely hates television, feeling that any connection between Vogue and TV “cheapens’ the Vogue brand. In fact, it’s well known that, a few years ago Wintour passed on an offer to partner with Project Runway when the show was in development that could have made the magazine potentially millions.

But with Talley already making TV appearances on Entertainment Tonight and America’s Next Top Model, there was friction between him and Wintour and Tallley obviously saw that the grass was greener on the TV side.

However, Vogue has stated that though he is leaving the magazine they expect him to still contribute from time to time, and that “he has a number of projects in the works with Vogue and Conde Nast, and maintains a warm relationship with them both.’.

Here’s the interview with Wallis:
