Jabroni of the Week: Andre Leon Talley

Posted: May 8, 2011 by Keith Stone in Andre Leon Talley, jabronis

Andre Leon Talley is the former editor-at-large for Vogue so presumably he’d be a fashionable guy. At the MET Costume Gala on Monday night, he instead looked like a gay Jabba the Hutt. It looks like Talley spilled something on his tux beforehand and didn’t have a backup so he grabbed his bedsheet. Either that, or it’s a XXXL Snuggie.

It bothers me that all these fashion people can wear whatever they want and nobody calls them on it. Dude is wearing a blue bedsheet. What the fuck?!?! Lady Gaga wears a dress out of Kermit the Frog dolls and it’s great. I wear brown shoes with a black belt and every single one of my friends has to point it out. Sometimes I just want to wear my Eli Manning jersey and jean shorts without getting weird looks. The Notorious ALT could probably pull that off at a funeral.

Andre, baby, you’re better than this. From the looks of it, the tuxedo underneath your bedsheet looks perfectly fine. You’re giving all the fashion guys out there a bad name. Do you think Karl Laggerfeld would wear something like that? On second thought, don’t answer. Just remember, the simpler the better and don’t wear white after Labor Day. Until then, you’re a jabroni, brother.
