Ralph Rucci is having a reality TV moment. Last week, the couturier's New York Fashion Week show disaster was the center plot on the premiere of Kell on Earth, and now WWD reports that Vogue editor at-large André Leon Talley will wear a different custom-made Rucci cloak on each episode of America's Next Top Model Cycle 14, set to premiere March 10 on the CW. The cloaks, which range in color and fabric but not in shape, were inspired by 17th-century Edo samurai tunics. Will Rucci--who has long been praised for his high-sewing skills but rejected by much of the fashion media because of his unwillingness to follow current trends--finally get his chance to shine? We hope so.
