Talley never explicitly said he was gay but in a 2018 appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, hy het gesê, "Geen, I’m not heterosexual; I’m saying I’m fluid in my sexuality, darling.”

He was raised by his maternal grandmother in Durham, Noord-Carolina, where he gained an interest in fashion at an early age after watching women in church.

His grandmother encouraged his interests, which led him to attend Brown University to study French literature.

He interned at the Metropolitan Museum of Art under Diana Vreeland, a legendary editor at Vogue. Van daar af, he moved to Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine and then Women’s Wear Daily.

Talley moved to Paris while working for WWD and was in contact with many powerful fashion designers, gaining him the attention and friendship of giants such as Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent.

He’s made cameos in Sex and the City and Empire and even appeared in a Mariah Carey music video for the track, Say Somethin’.
