Synopsis: The unstoppable, unforgettable André Leon Talley, Vogue magazine’s editor at large, embodies the essence of the American spirit—the self-made man who has risen through the ranks of the elite high fashion industry with subtle perseverance, incomparable elegance, and searing wit over the past three decades. “Style transcends race, class, and time,” Talley explains; his inestimable influence can be seen everywhere, from the runways and the glossies to the backstage parties and the streets.
Talley invites us to share in a year of his life in A.L.T. 365+, his first art monograph, designed by world-renowned art director Sam Shahid. Within the pages, Talley’s photographs and text introduce us to the people and places he encounters along his travels around the world, be it among the devout perched along the front row of Fashion Week in New York, Paris, and Milan or seated with the faithful at the Good Friday services at Abyssinian Baptist Church, Harlem. A wonderful and warm family album, A.L.T. 365+ is inspired by Allure, the iconic volume of culture, personality, and style by Talley’s beloved mentor, Diana Vreeland.
Showcasing charmingly candid snapshots, taken with a Kodak one-time-use camera to lend a classic Warholian touch, along with revealing and intimate remembrances, A.L.T. 365+ is the only book to bring you the most illustrious players of our day living the life without thinking twice, all posing for Talley’s camera—legendary designers Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, Miuccia Prada, Oscar de la Renta, Manolo Blahnik, Diane von Furstenberg, Tom Ford, Donatella Versace, Stella McCartney, Stephen Jones, and Zac Posen; famed models Iman, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista, Sophie Dahl, Stella Tennant, and Carmen Kass; superstar drag queens Lypsinka and Lady Bunny; Hip Hop icons Russell Simmons, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, and Jay-Z; reigning divas Liza Minnelli, Diana Ross, Patti LaBelle, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Queen Latifah, and Boy George; among many others. Unvarnished, unairbrushed, and full of love, A.L.T. 365+ reveals a world where style is as style does.
