Encounters With Celebrities/Andre' Leon Talley

Andre' Leon Talley is a contributing editor for Vogue magazine and I met him when he was going to Joan's On Third in Southern California. He was with his tennis coach and as soon as I saw him was when I rushed over to say hi. I recognized him because I do follow fashion and he is well-known in the fashion industry.

He is currently a judge on America's Top Model...which is a talent show featuring women who compete against each other for a lucrative modeling contract. I was excited to meet him because he always is seen as dressing in top form..... which is something that I admire in is important.

Fashion is important to me and I adore people in fashion for their tenacity as well as scrutiny. Some people in fashion can be ruthless but it is an extraordinarily competitive industry where emotions run high like water rushing through a city to flood everything.

I would sometimes crash parties and shows that were being put on during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City. It is put on twice a year there as well as other metropolitan places throughout the world where fashion is prevalent.

I did attend fashion school for two weeks after being dropped from a culinary arts program and after losing my job at a brassiere due to the World Trade Center Tragedy but I quickly found out that going to that fashion school was not for me.  It takes a tremendous amount of skill with good eye and hand coordination. It's kind of like cooking.
