Okay, he does look like the future dude from the first B&T movie, but wasn't the actual future dude Clarence Clemons of Bruce's E-Street band?

Help me out here, is there a connection beyond "sort-of looks like that guy"?

So was his thing dressing up in curtains?  That's all I got from the pictures.

No, but he does seem like a hell of a character. Didn't know him but looking at his bio, I'm kinda sad he's gone.

He designed the costumes and sunglasses used in "The Future".

"The Future" looks bulky and not practical to me.

He broke through and showed the world that black people can be just as superficial and vain as anyone else.

he was a big deal in certain circles, like fashion, which i know is not everyone's go-to art form, but also as an alphabet soup trailblazer- POC, LBGTQ+ etc.
it's sad and grossly fitting that the covid deniers, by prolonging the plague, have basically stolen 15 years of life from a unique and creative force.
(i know no one is guaranteed 88 years, but i like to pretend we are)

They all look alike to subby.

"Received" an MA in French literature. I'd say "earned." It's not like an honorary doctorate.

He worked at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum under Diana Vreeland, Vogue Editor from ages ago. They have clothes from around the world goring back to the fifteenth century-Talley likely catalogued thousands of pieces of clothing history. He understood a topic deeply, passionately, with a broad view of history, High Fashion is still the world of powerful elites, and he had an encyclopedic knowledge of fashion history decades before anything was catalogued online. He worked his way up from being raised by his housekeeper grandmother in the segregated South to dictating and curating what skinny white women wore all over the world. Being obsessive and passionate and detailed and hardworking as he was-and Black, and gay--to have reached the level that he did in that world--and he never had a devoted partner--well, he had to have learned some Great Art of living. Style is not necessarily superficial-it is way of paying attention, showing self-respect, participating in life. I think he went about life in a decent way.

You can't spell fashionista without fascist. Only people worse than fashists are bicyclists, tiktokers, people with tattoes, people that know subgenres and people that kinda like Khruangbin while thousands die of coronavirus
/and few others

He also did a couple seasons of America's Next Top Model. There's no mention here, though; maybe it's an unwelcome stain on his otherwise illustrious career.

I think that was when Vogue & Wintour froze him out. He had a certain lifestyle to maintain. I'm curious to read his memoir, it's odd what happens to AA's in the reaching higher echelons of the conquering culture. Jessye Norman, the great opera singer who was recently doctored to death after living a life of excess, reminds me of a female parallel to Talley. Beyond merely talented, they were Genius, supremely gifted individuals--and they had to sacrifice so much personal, human, domestic fulfillment to excel in their chosen artistic fields. Same generation, those two, both from the Deep South. The grief they endured and beauty they created can't be separated. They should be remembered and remembered well.

"I went through my life on the strength of hope, and the memory of my ancestors, and the people who showed me unconditional love," he wrote, adding: "I bow down to no one and find my way through the memory of what has been good in this life..."
