Talley's book comes amid his estranged relationship with his long-time friend and Vogue editor-in-chief,

Anna Wintour.

Since 1983 he has been working at the magazine until he left his position as a writer and creative director recently. According to PEOPLE, their relationship fell apart shortly after the MET Gala in 2018 when he was dropped from his annual position of hosting the event's red carpet.


While discussing his book during an interview with Gayle King for CBS This Morning, Talley explained the current status of his almost 30-year friendship with Anna, he said:

"I think my relationship is in an iceberg with her. I hope that it will not be that forever."


"The Chiffon Trenches" is Talley’s second memoir. It chronicles his friendship with Anna, from which he called his love letter to her, Talley explained:

"It's a love letter about the joys as well as the lows of my life. And the joys of my life have been with Anna Wintour."

Anna is among many of the famous fashion icons he mentions in his memoirs. Talley also shares stories of his friendship with Madonna, Yves Saint Laurent, and Karl Lagerfeld, just to name a few.
