Terrible news for fashion fanatics.
News has just reached me that a certain Mr Andre Leon Talley is no longer to be a judge on America’s Next Top Model. Former American editor-at-large of Vogue, and personality-at-large at anywhere else he went, he was one of my favourite parts of the series.

His replacement is the prolific Kelly Cutrone, who I’ve loved ever since ‘The Hills’. If you haven’t heard of her, or have and are not convinced of her utter fabulousness, then listen here.

I’ll leave you with a Kelly-ism.
