A new film about fashion icon Andre Leon Talley is coming to theaters next month. Magnolia Pictures will release "The Gospel According to Andre" in theaters on May 25, 2018.

Check out the trailer followed by a Q&A with Talley and the director during #TIFF17 below: 






André Leon Talley has been a fixture in the world of fashion for so long that it’s difficult to imagine a time when he wasn’t defining the boundaries of great style. Director, Kate Novack’s portrait, "The Gospel According to André" takes viewers on an emotional journey from André’s roots growing up in the segregated Jim Crow South to become one of the most influential tastemakers and fashion curators of our times.

Novack’s film draws fascinating, heretofore unexplored connections, between the elegance of André’s beloved grandmother and the Black Church of his youth and his later iconic, barrier-breaking work at publications like Women’s Wear Daily, W and Vogue. Weaving together a wealth of archival footage from the most glamorous moments in fashion history with André’s poignant reflections on his life and career, The Gospel According to André is a cinematic monument to one of the most unique figures of 20th Century American culture.

Produced by the team who brought viewers The First Monday in May and Page One: Inside The New York Times and featuring commentary from fashion luminaries including Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, "The Gospel According to André" is an indispensable addition to the growing canon of fashion documentary.
