Our fashion prayers have been answered! Andre Leon Talley, aka contributing editor of American Vogue, former judge on America's Next Top Model, front row bon vivant, and general purveyor of all that is fash-witty and awesome, is getting his own Bravo show. Tentatively titled Fashion Stories of NYC, the show will center around Andre as a mentor to four up-and-coming fashion design teams who need that extra push to create, show, and sell their lines. Although it sounds like a familiar formula, we have high hopes that with ALT on board, it will be something else entirely.

First of all, the man knows fashion better than anyone (and he knows everyone IN fashion). Aside from being a longtime editor at Vogue, he has dedicated his career to fostering the talent of young designers. Also, he began his career as Andy Warhol's assistant, so there's that extra layer of pop culture amazingness. As you might already know, the man is also mad about capes and robes, and isn't afraid of any amount of satin or sparkle. All we can say is we CANNOT WAIT to see how this show unfolds, and expect major amounts of drama over anything and everything "drekitude" subdued by one-liners like, "I am just tired of this hee haw elegance." It's a famine of beauty, honey, but Andre's here to change it!
