André Leon Talley Has a New Hobby


Vogue's André Leon Talley attended a book party for Gloria Vanderbilt at Diane Von Furstenberg's meatpacking district headquarters this week. He wore a shirt emblazoned with "ALT" and brown alligator loafers without socks. When asked what he's obsessed with these days, he answered, "Gardening!" As in, with soil and vegetables? "Oh, no, I don't plant. I go to auctions at Doyle and buy gardening ornaments or furniture. That's my idea of planting, it's arranging!" [NYO]
