The 'Vogue' contributing editor will share tales of the fashion world on a forthcoming series.

Let's file this under things we like—no, things we love. The outlandish, eccentric, caftan-wearing, Whoopi Goldberg-bestie Andre Leon Talley will have his very own television program on Bravo. The network announced that Talley, who is a contributing editor at Vogue and is known for bon mots like drecktitude and the infamous declaration that his eyes were "starving for beauty," in the film The September Issue will star in a show tentitively titled Fashion Stories of NYC. After making a splash as in the 2009 film about the making of an issue of the women's monthly, Talley was tapped as part of the judging panel for America's Next Top Model in 2010, where he served boatloads of fashionable realness and nitpicked even the most beautiful contestants from cycles 14 to 17 (in ANTM parlance, cycle=season). According to The Hollywood Reporter, on the show "he will usher four emerging fashion-design teams in creating, showing and selling a collection." You know that we'll be watching.
