A reader sent in this befuddling tweet from someone named Ashley Garcia: "@OfficialALT it was great meeting you today at American Apparel, I'd love to touch base with you in the future -Ashley :)" To which we thought, "Huh? Andre Leon Talley at American Apparel? Is this a joke? Is Ralph Rucci designing stretch cotton capes for Dov Charney?" And then American Apparel confirmed with Fashionista that Andre Leon Talley did indeed visit the company's LA factory.

And then American Apparel confirmed with Fashionista that Andre Leon Talley did indeed visit the company's LA factory. It seems Talley encountered Dov Charney at the Financial Times Business of Luxury Summit a few weeks ago. (He tweeted that American Apparel's fearless leader "was cool in seersucker pants.")

The brand, mired in controversy, declined to comment on Talley's visit, leaving us to surmise what the contributing editor at Vogue was doing in the land of leotards and lamé.

An upcoming "Life with Andre"? We kind of doubt it.

What do you think?
