Andre Leon Talley on His New Job at Numero Russia

The Real Reason André Leon Talley Took That Job at Numéro Russia

Much has been made of André Leon Talley's new job as the editor at large of Numéro Russia — some even suggested that he was leaving Vogue for the position. But Talley himself said he took the job because he needed the money.

More from Talley on his new role, here.

"I'm proud to say I'm going to be 64, I felt I needed more financial security as I go in my twilight age, a little bit more cash for mortgages and as I go into retirement," Talley said in a Q&A with WWD. "I took the job because I love Russia and the salary was something fabulous. Money isn't everything, but it is when you start thinking about putting money away for your retirement days," he said, adding that "Anna [Wintour] was very sympathetic and understood and she decided we remain on good terms and that I do the digital and the online. And I'm very happy to do it."

In addition to his contributions to Vogue — his Mondays With André video series and columns are still running on Vogue.com — Talley has also partnered with a production company called Electus to create a late-night talk show about fashion. Talley's aim is to create a program "that blends Dick Cavett's approach to eloquence and sophistication with unparalleled access into my international fashion lifestyle," he said.
