Make Andre Leon Talley a Movie Star!

Yes, we’ve said it an embarrassing number of times, but Grace Coddington was the stand out star of The September Issue. However, chances of her breaking into films are slim considering how shy she is. But is there a film star in the making in the shape of the not-so-shrinking-violet, Andre Leon Talley? Well news reaches us that he turned down a role in the heart-wrenching movie, Precious, offered by the film director, Lee Daniels. He was to star in a fantasy Vogue magazine photo shoot sequence (we’re thinking Sex and the City the movie type idea), but declined. Boo. But surely Andre demands a fuller part, after all, yes he is an amazing character himself, but why should he always play himself? We’d love to see him in a John Waters film, where he could be anything he wanted! Although it’s a shame that he missed the role he was born to play… Hollywood in Mannequin! Never heard of it? Shame on you. Jump to 3.18mins and 7.21 to understand what on earth we’re talking about
