    Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley said last night that just because he's on the judging panel for the latest season of "America's Next Top Model" doesn't mean he's a fan of the reality TV genre.

    “I cannot look at those types of shows,” Talley said. “So I’m not going to waste my time keeping up with the Kardashians.”

    The fashion guru, who said he opts for MSNBC programming over "Project Runway," was joined by Vogue creative director Grace Coddington Thursday night to promote the DVD release of the documentary "The September Issue" at the Union Square Barnes & Noble. The pair talked shop, Twitter and TV habits.

    Talley batted down rumors that the duo tweeted their way through New York Fashion Week. He claimed that any tweets purportedly from the pair were fakes.

    "We don't have Twitter accounts," said Talley. "Please. It's fraudulent. It's totally a fake. It's bogus."

    Coddington said she wasn't a fan of Twitter either. “It doesn’t help me in fashion very much. I don’t work that way, and I’m a little old to start working that way now,” she said.

    Added Talley, “Old school is good. New school is great, but old school is better."
