Directed by Kate Novack, The Gospel According to André is an upcoming documentary will offer an intimate look at the life and times of Vogue editor André Leon Talley. Talley, who formerly served as the fashion bible’s editor-at-large and is currently listed as a contributing editor, has been an industry staple for over 25 years. He’s used his incredible influence to promote and support black fashion designers and black fashion models.
Beginning his career at Andy Warhol’s Factory in the 1970s before climbing the ranks of the New York fashion editorial world, Talley made a lasting impact by pushing to include African-American models and designers in such major publications as Women’s Wear Daily, W, and Vogue magazine. Today, his judgment is sought by top designers, stylists, and celebrity clientele. Featuring fashion luminaries such as Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Valentino, and Manolo Blahnik testifying to André’s gifts, the film traces his journey with rich archival footage that summons multiple eras of stylish and outlandish clothing.
