Andre Leon Talley: Get your ass up in the tub!

28 October 2011

Oh, we love Andre Leon Talley. Without doubt, he is the best thing about ANTM and the reason that BNTM, as much as we love it, remains the mousy-haired younger sister to ANTM’s peroxide blonde fabulousness. There; we said it.

This week, ALT was unimpressed with one of the ANTM all-stars contestants, Bianca, for not getting into a bathtub for a shoot. Admittedly, this is pretty lame on Bianca’s part, and prompted Andre to proclaim to Tyra Banks that ‘you, Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss – if it’s a tub and some petals… Get your ass up in the tub!’

Absolutely. This in turn prompted Grazia Daily to a) compile a fantasy judging line-up for the next season of BNTM (The Model Agency’s Carole White, perhaps? And Meadham Kirchhoff?) And b) to compile a list of ALT’s best quotes and tweets. Which is here for your amusement.  

More on ANTM’s Bianca:

Bianca on Top Model, what's this thing about not getting in a bath tub. Tyra would get in a volcanic lava run, if it didn't burn for work.’

On The Devil Wears Prada:

‘It took me forever to see The Devil Wears Prada. I waited until I could get it at Target at a discount for $10’.

On his favourite TV show:

‘If you want quality late nite TV, its always The Golden Girls. Helmut Lang loves it. So do I. I can watch the same episode over and over.’

On The View:

Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters look sensational today. Sherri and Elizabeth, take off those basketball Ts. Go back to your wardrobes’.

ON GaGa:

Lady Gaga has to thank Madonna for so many important eureka moments of inspiration, and she should perhaps take some courses in deportment.’
