André Leon Talley is taking the word “diva” to a new level!
The higher up’s in fashion have always been seen as the untouchables who demand what they demand with no questions.
That has happened with former Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley.
According to staffers at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston Talley is impossible to work with.
Talley was named the main curator for the “The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta” display, but is he taking his role too far?.
“André is being a diva to everyone,” says one incensed source. “He has been at odds with curator Cindi Strauss, telling her what to do — while he rides around the entire museum in his motorized wheelchair. It got so bad he even made her cry . . . yes, CRY.”
The source continued, “He instructed the museum staff not to look him in the eyes. Even the people working alongside him . . . The funny thing was that most people at the museum had no clue who he was.”
Being that de la Renta was such a major name, this exhibit is said to showcase his work from the 1960s to now. It is said to feature his work from Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Annette de la Renta, and even Amal Clooney’s wedding dress.
That was the last and final bridal gown he designed before passing away from complications from cancer in 2014.
“It’s about beauty — a celebration of this great man’s life and I think it’s quite inspiring and wonderful,” Talley told WWD of the exhibition.
