My favorite Andre moment of all time was during the early years of “fashion TV” programming, when they deigned to bring the runways to the masses via local cable. Some poor old fashion hag was co-hosting with Andre and when she saw a bunch of black items coming down a runway looked very pleased with herself when she declared “It’s almost as if black is the new black!”
Talley looked at her as if she had just offered him a turd sandwich. “NO. Red is the new black.” It was hard not to feel embarrassed for her, because you knew he was right somehow.
