Anna Wintour is being trashed by her former close friend, André Leon Talley, in his forthcoming memoir.
In the book, André says he has “huge emotional and psychological scars” after working with the Vogue editor for decades. He writes Anna is “not capable of simple human kindness” and “she is immune to anyone other than the powerful and famous people who populate the pages of Vogue.” André is a fashion icon in his own right and started working for Vogue in 1983.
André explains where his relationship with Anna started to go south. In 2016, he started hosting a Vogue podcast that featured celebrity guests. The show was a success, but he took issue with only being paid $500 per episode. The podcast was suddenly canned without explanation.
