Raise your hand if you would watch the hell out of a late-night talk show hosted by André Leon Talley. All of your hands had better be up! The man who coined the term drekitude has inked a deal with production company to develop such a show:

He said his goal is to create “a show that blends Dick Cavett‘s approach to eloquence and sophistication with unparalleled access into my international fashion lifestyle. A forum where unique stories will be told and inspirations shared.”

Some bon mots from Carine Roitfeld: “So maybe I’m French. I was raised with Guy Bourdin. For me it’s very normal. Even if a girl was totally naked she was never vulgar. There was a sense of chic.
