'Top Model': Can André Leon Talley fill Miss J's puffy sleeves?*

Posted on

Physically, yes. Theoretically, NEVER. Vogue‘s André Leon Talley has agreed to replace J. Alexander on the judging panel of America’s Next Top Model after a long, eight-year decision process during which he watched zero episodes. This man has never seen America’s Next Top Model. I am struggling with this. Can any of you imagine such an empty existence?

Tyra hopes Talley will steer the show in a high-fashion direction that will impress viewers. “It might go over their head, but he’s educating them about a time, bringing them back to a place when fashion was life,” she told People. As usual, Tyra is being modest about her own ability to educate. I’ve learned tons of new wordées from her spontaneous French lessons during panel. Anyway, don’t worry, Miss J. will still appear on Top Model, but exclusively in a runway-training setting. Is this okay with you? Vote below.

*For the record, no one should ever fill puffy sleeves because puffy sleeves in general should not exist.
