Andre Leon Talley, Vogue magazine’s esteemed Editor-In-Chief will serve as the 4th judge on America’s Next Top Model (ANTM), replacing model Paulina Porizkova. The venerable fashion icon, partially known for his massive stature, and even larger ego, will be sure get tongues wagging as he spars with resident divas Ms. Banks and runway coach Miss J. As Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief since 1998, and a veteran in the world of fashion, Mr. Talley has likely seen more runways than Delta. If anyone is qualified to pick a good model, he should be. Frankly, I am a bit surprised that Talley signed up for this, and more importantly that Ms. Wintour has given her blessing. I personally haven’t watched ANTM in years, but it just may be worthwhile to tune in for at least one episode of this “Clash of the Titans”.
Cycle 14 of America’s Next Top Model premieres on March 10 at 8 pm EST.
What do you think of Mr. Talley taking a turn at judge?
