Tom Ford: He’s baaaaack!

January 4, 2011

It’s hard not to love Tom Ford if  you are a fashion devotee. From his impeccable personal style (hello, gorgeous!) to his stints at Gucci and YSL, Ford has always pushed the envelope in terms of high glamour. Since 2007, gents have been lucky enough to have access to Ford’s eponymous menswear line — full of perfectly tailored suits and unusual prints — but women have been pining for his return to ready-to-wear.

Luckily, the wait is over. Back in September, Ford premiered his Spring/Summer 2011 women’s collection in a top-secret, ultra-exclusive runway show. Press were banned, but lucky attendees got to see Beyoncé, Lauren Hutton and Julianne Moore (among others) strut their stuff.

Check out the video to see what all the fuss is about. Ford debuted clothes that were totally sultry, using ’70s-esque menswear with deep decolletage, tons of sequins, and siren-red lips. Accenting it all was bold yellow gold jewelry in the form of necklaces, drop earrings and cuffs. I, for one, am thrilled to welcome him back.

Monday Eye Candy: Roger Vivier

November 16, 2009


I’m pretty excited to see this amazing Roger Vivier Geometric Shoulder bag just listed–it was released earlier this year and became an instant favorite with the fashion crowd. There’s something so chic and so simple about the shape; it looks a little ’70s vintage but also has a bit of a futuristic vibe. Bag Snob gave it a rave when it was launched in stores.

I’ve noticed a lot of geometric motifs in the news recently. How about Beyoncé’s Atelier Versace dress at the MTV Europe VMAs last month? That’s another winner in my book–I really liked the silver details on the mermaid dress, it took a girly gown and made it fierce.
