The Gospel According to André
Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018 – Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018
04:00 PM – 05:35 PM
Introduced by Yvonne Cormier, who is a close friend of André Leon Talley’s and appears in this documentary.
From the segregated American South to the fashion capitals of the world, the life and career of operatic fashion editor André Leon Talley are on full display in this poignant portrait. The Gospel According to André features appearances by Manolo Blahnik, Tom Ford, Diane von Furstenberg, Valentino Garavani, Marc Jacobs, and Anna Wintour, among others.
Weaving together a wealth of archival footage from glamorous moments in fashion history with Talley’s own reflections on his experiences, the documentary is a cinematic monument to a unique figure of contemporary American culture. Talley is also curator of the MFAH exhibition The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta, on view through January 28.
