Only André could make wearing Uggs sound like a transcendental experience: "Uggs for me are a moment of utilitarian comfort that keeps you anchored in the reality of today’s world, which is very important." Deep.

André Leon Talley is one of fashion's most beloved figures, reaching icon status after appearing in The September Issue. But coming from he who coined terms such as "dreckitude" and "famine of beauty," it might surprise you to learn that Talley is a big fan of Uggs. He told Styleite:

"When I discovered Uggs, it was a revelation. I love Uggs. Uggs can be as chic as heels for women."

And André doesn't just love them on women--it turns out the Vogue editor owns 15 pairs of the furry boots himself. Which is a good thing too, because according to the editor, Uggs help him stay down to earth. "Uggs for me are a moment of utilitarian comfort that keeps you anchored in the reality of today’s world, which is very important."

What we wouldn't give to see Anna's face when André's Uggs come stomping through the halls of Vogue ...
