André Leon Talley Writes of Cold Betrayal by Anna Wintour


Former Vogue-editor-at-large André Leon Talley explains the cruel way Anna Wintour cut him out of her life...
 
The 70-year-old fashionista has written a memoir about his life and broken friendship with Vogue editor Anna Wintour, the women who launched his fashion career.

In an excerpt from his book Talley explains how he found out he was no longer in the inner circle.

From The Daily Mail
In the Spring of 2018 Talley was expecting to prepare for his red carpet interviews for the Met Gala but nobody from Vogue had contacted him.
When Talley called he was told such things were 'beneath' him but he saw it for what it was - a not so subtle signal to leave.
He writes: 'This was clearly a stone-cold business decision. I had suddenly become too old, too overweight, too uncool, I imagined, for Anna Wintour.
'After decades of loyalty and friendships...Anna should have had the decency and kindness to call me or send me an email saying: 'Andre, I think we have had a wonderful run with your interviews but we are going to try something new'.
'I would have accepted that...I understand; nothing lasts forever. Simple human kindness. No, she is not capable'.

He's surprised by her turning on him? nigga please while your big burly ass was all up in her fake ass circle, worshiping that calcified, cold emotionally dead troglodyte, you were on board with her fuckery, so don't cry now your burly ass has been disposed. None of those mf's in that manufactured world is cool, they are all ugly, tired , vapid, and ridiculous. It's also another industry who trafficks young children into sex slave rings for the deviant satanic pedophiles. This sad negro sold his soul a long time ago.

In interviews he always came off as dismissive, snooty and bougie so I guess he's finally tasting his own medicine and doesn't like it. That whole chasing behind some stoic White woman never sat right with me. I always felt like he was accepted into her circle as a sort of a sidebar joke they would laugh at behind closed doors.

Anna did an intervention and sent him to a fat farm. He lost some weight and gained it back. That within its self should have told you the deal.

The movie he did several years ago telling on how Prada and others stop talking to him after he left Vogue. He must need money because that movie told most of what we already know.

Its Like Heidi Klum says " One day your in and the next day your Out" now go eat another biscuit gurl.

This big old fool learned his lesson. When white supremacy is through with you, and you're used up then they break their tools.

@9:15. YOu sound gullible to think the "movie" exposed real truths. Dre was right there and i can't wait to see his tea.
Yes, i beleive Dre was just as pompous & snooty as Anna when he was in that circle but to think coworkers are your true friends bc you sepnt all that time together is a bit presumptuous unless y'all been vibing personally outside of work. Its funny his feelings are hurt when he knows thebtrue beast. Remibds me when i left a jib job after 10yrs & attempted to connect w a few ppl and 2 of them never accepted my invitation. I was surprised but it was revealing...and indidnt lose sleep...fugg'em

@ 9:45am No not gullible. Time has passed and its not that important to bring up old Tea. I personally know this world of 7th ave. I worked there for many years as a designer.

So NOBODY else is curious about the Kobe story magically diappearing said...
