We’ve known about fashion icon, André Leon Talley’s NEW documentary for quite some time now and it would be an understatement to say that we’re excited about the premiere. Let’s be honest here, we’re ecstatic!

The documentary, entitled, The Gospel According to André tells the life of Talley, who was the former editor-at-large at Vogue.

The documentary covers everything from his North Carolina upbringing where his grandmother’s style influenced him to his days of working as a fashion editor at iconic fashion magazines such as Interview, W, Women’s Wear Daily, and of course Vogue.

Check out this exclusive clip as André’s friends reflect on how a black man from the south was able to become a true fashion legend especially during a day in age in which there were very few people of color in the fashion industry.

The Gospel According to André hits select movie theaters this Friday, May 25th!
