Legacies: The Gospel According to André

Filmmaker Kate Novack explores the life and career of fashion journalist André Leon Talley -- from his childhood in the segregated South to his iconic, barrier-breaking work at Women's Wear Daily, W and Vogue.

André Leon Talley was an American fashion journalist, stylist, creative director, and editor-at-large of Vogue magazine. He was the magazine's fashion news director from 1983 to 1987, its first African-American male creative director from 1988 to 1995, and then its editor-at-large from 1998 to 2013.

"Novack is aware of the imagined incongruity of Talley in these places and outright rejects it, making The Gospel According to Andre not only a portrait of its subject but a challenge to our assumptions..." Battleship Pretension
