André Leon Talley Makes a ‘Special Effort to Go to the Dumpster’

At yesterday's premiere of Isabella Rossellini's new film, Animals Distract Me, André Leon Talley explained how he's making an effort go green without sacrificing the important things, like nice outfits. "At Vogue we’re going to have certain issues devoted to green. We’ve asked certain designers to make green clothes," he said, adding, "I don’t think everyone should be wearing hip sacks and burlap blouses. There’s still room for luxury." For his own part, he's careful about how he gets rid of his garbage. "You have to wake up and be conscious of everything, the way you dispose of things. I do make trips to the Dumpster. And I am proud of that because it’s far from my house. But I make a special effort to go to the Dumpster and put the cardboard with the cardboard, and plastic with the plastics."
