A Conversation with André Leon Talley 

When: Sun., Oct. 29, 6 p.m. 2017
Price: $40-$45

On October 28, the North Carolina Museum of Art opens a large, exciting new exhibit, Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of the Ebony Fashion Fair. It showcases half a century's worth of stunning looks by big-name designers (Christian Lacroix, Yves Saint Laurent, Vivienne Westwood) from Ebony magazine's traveling fashion show, which helped redefine concepts of beauty for African Americans throughout the second half of the twentieth century. We'll have in-depth coverage of the exhibit next week, but for now, we want to point you toward this exceptional auxiliary event featuring legendary Vogue editor (and, later, America's Next Top Model judge) André Leon Talley, who is originally from Durham and was a fashion editor at Ebony early in his career. He'll discuss his behind-the-scenes memories of the Fashion Fair with Audrey Smaltz, who was the voice of the fashion show for years. —Brian Howe
