André Leon Talley is a force to be reckoned with. The former Vogue editor-at-large lives up to his name in both size and stature and he arrived at the Costume Institute Gala last night looking like a cross between a Jedi knight, the world’s most stylish boxer, and a feudal Japanese warrior. The imposing fashion guru was escorted by his friend Whoopi Goldberg whose white ensemble would have been, under any other circumstances, the most karate-formalwear look of the night. It’s hard to compete though when your date is a fashion sensei. Talley dons the look often though, that is, when he’s not in his furs. Check out some of his best (and most insane) looks in our gallery.
