While the rest of the fashion world was "OMG"ing and "#NYFW"ing over the first New York Fashion Week shows yesterday, Vogue's beloved editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley was at home watching the Democratic National Convention, according to his Twitter. In fact, if his Twitter feed is anything to go by, the great ALT is way more interested in politics this season than anything happening on a runway: The only fashion-related tweeting he's done this month is in regards to what Michelle Obama and Rachel Maddow are wearing. Perhaps today's show line-up will entice him back to us? We hope so. Fashion Week is going to be way less fun without @OfficialALT. [Andre Leon Talley/Twitter]
