Spanning just five days, London Fashion Week is the shortest of the ready-to-wear fashion weeks. It’s also in many ways the most entertaining: the attendees, the street style, and most of all, the clothes on the runway are consistently lighter-hearted than New York and Milan’s more austere ambiance. Just take legendary designer Tom Ford, for example, who unveiled his first ever London catwalk show with a collection more vividly multi-ethnic than the pure streamlined elegance he’s known for. London Fashion Week has come and gone, so we’ve pulled five of our favorite shows from the five days — let’s take a look at Marios Schwab, Christopher Kane, Erdem, Burberry Prorsum, Roksanda Ilincic, and one veeeeery un-Tom Ford Tom Ford collection … Keep reading »
“This sounds negative, but when you’re considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, it’s very, very hard when that starts to slip away. It’s hard to feel good about yourself when people react to you differently. And, Gisele, I hope you’re not reading this, because it’s going to sound so negative but I know through some of my best friends who are really famous actresses — I’m not going to mention their names — who were at one point considered to be among the most beautiful women in the world at different periods of time, and how hard it is for them emotionally. So I hope Gisele is prepared for that, because it’s so difficult.”

Figuring out how to wear a bold lip can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not used to wearing lipstick. (Or if you’re basically used to ignoring the fact that you have lips on your face altogether.) The wrong shade can wash you out, or make you look lizard-y. And when you’re wearing a bright, bold lip color you just can’t help but feel so out there in the open.
So that’s why we teamed up with esteemed makeup artist Susana to get a quick lesson on Lipstick 101. What we learned: you don’t have to fear a bold lip. Bright lipsticks can be fun, dramatic and totally sexy!

“If I could put [Marc Jacobs], and oh my God, let me think for a second. Tom Ford. That’s a fit. Is Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs a fit? ‘Cause they both have those muscles and ripped bodies. And they both look straight. I’d date ‘em. They’re both gorgeous. And I didn’t mean that as a generalization, and don’t you gay people get all snippy with me. I meant that as a compliment!”
–Sad circus clown Patti Stanger is totally that annoying friend that assumes that all gay people she knows are attracted to each other. Here she is running her mouth at the Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show trying to set up Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, because you know, they’re both in fashion, and gay, so obviously they should date. GAH. [NYMag]
Oh, Tom Ford, where will you draw the line? As a fashion editor and writer, I’ve been behind you since the days of Gucci, YSL and certainly your namesake collections. And as a designer-turned-director, you have an amazing talent for understanding what we want to see, what the next big thing is and, ultimately, what will titillate us.
But it is your judgment as a guest editor that leaves us scratching our heads. Read more … Keep reading »
“You know, most people actually look better nude. We are all one harmonious colour, with a symmetry and an innate elegance. Fat women almost always look better without the constraint and lumpy pinching of clothes, all the straps and elastic squeezing and sucking.”

At long last, we get to see designer Tom Ford‘s much discussed and totally secreted away collection for spring 2011. Six years ago, Ford resigned from his dual post as creative director of Gucci and YSL, leaving ’70s-loving ladies filled with sadness. In the interim, Ford created his own brand, hawking fragrances and eye wear, opened a series of menswear retail stores, and made the critically acclaimed “A Single Man,” for which leading man Colin Firth was nominated for an Academy Award. But it wasn’t until this September that Ford returned to women’s wear with a fashion show that only a select few were allowed to see, which featured models like Beyonce and Julianne Moore, and from which photographers were barred, save one. Now, Vogue has the first images of the collection and a profile of the designer, who’s committed to helming his brand his way. [Vogue] Keep reading »
Tom Ford, former Gucci designer, raging narcissist and surprisingly awesome director of “A Single Man,” has confirmed that he’ll be making another movie. We were skeptical when we heard last year that Ford was directing at all, but his debut film was actually pretty great, so we’re excited to see what he’s got for us this time. Ford’s staying tight-lipped about the project for now, but we’re sure it’ll be at least as visually stunning as “A Single Man” was and can’t wait for the release! [Elle UK] Keep reading »
