Fashion editor Andre Leon Talley attends a private breakfast and discussion at the 21 Club on May 18, 2010 in New York City. ATL was giving a lecture about Paris Fashion here are some quotes from the discussion.
1.) Learn some French - " When I got to Paris and I could speak French, I know how much it helped me to establish relationships with Karl Lagerfeld, with the late Yves St. Laurent. French, it just helps you if you’re in fashion. The French people started style. "
2. Etiquette is a must- " [ANTM winner, Krista] had a sense of etiquette — she wasn’t a potty mouth. There were some girls that were just, I don’t know where they grew up! Someone should tell them how to talk, or how to respond to other people in a stressful environment. She just expressed to me the kind of tools you need to be a successful model: punctuality, grace, manners, speaking properly to people, looking well-groomed, focused."
