Introduced by Yvonne Cormier, who is a close friend of André Leon Talley’s and appears in this documentary.

From the segregated American South to the fashion capitals of the world, the life and career of operatic fashion editor André Leon Talley are on full display in this poignant portrait. The Gospel According to André features appearances by Manolo Blahnik, Tom Ford, Diane von Furstenberg, Valentino Garavani, Marc Jacobs, and Anna Wintour, among others.

Weaving together a wealth of archival footage from glamorous moments in fashion history with Talley’s own reflections on his experiences, the documentary is a cinematic monument to a unique figure of contemporary American culture. Talley is also curator of the MFAH exhibition The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta, on view through January 28.

• Watch a discussion with André Leon Talley at the Toronto International Film Festival.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
