As part of a scene which involves Carrie Bradshaw being photographed for a fictional Age Issue of Vogue, stylist Lawren Howell (who previously made a cameo on The Hills) helps Andre drape the dresses, and Contributing Editor Plum Sykes reports for the accompanying story. Meanwhile, Anna Wintour is there in spirit: She picked all the couture dresses that are in the fictional photoshoot personally.
Patrick Demarchelier "shoots" the editorial, and off-camera, Andre Leon Talley makes stylistic decisions on accessories — gloves to go with the Vera Wang wedding dress? "We want to see her putting them on." And earrings? "Not too big."
When ALT asks for lunch on the set, however, it's more of a problem. "He is told he has to work for eight hours — till 5:00 p.m. — before he can eat. This is not what happens on a Vogue shoot, he tells [director Michael Patrick] King, pursing and twisting his lips in a way that says, I have better things to do than not eat lunch," reports Plum Sykes.
But ALT must have gotten his lunch eventually, because he ended on a good note, screaming, 'This is fashion!' into the video monitor. Good times.
For more good times, a clip of that segment of the movie . . .
