Welcome back, Mr Ford

Tom Ford's highly anticipated first Womenswear collection in 6 years has dropped! I love these beautiful shots by Steven Miesel featuring Mr Ford himself with favourites Karen Elson and Stella Tennant. That metallic pailette sequin jacket Stella is wearing is to die for - I'm on the lookout for a blingy blazer for Christmas.
His covert show at fashion week blindsided the fash-pack and featured a kaleidoscope of glittering celeb friends and Supers such as Lauren Hutton, Natalia Vodianova, Lou Doillon, Amber Valetta, Stella Tennant, Daphne Guiness, Beyonce and Julianne Moore - who didn't know what she was in for until she arrived in New York and was told she was hitting the runway! Pics by Terry Richardson.
American Vogue has the scoop with a super-luxe campaign shot by Steven Miesel (of course!) and featuring Karen Elson, Edita Vilkeviciute, Amber Valletta, Joan Smalls, Stella Tennant, Carolyn Murphy and Anja Rubik.
Tom Ford also appears on the cover of Vogue Paris in December with Daphne Groeneveld (top image), taken by my faves by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot. Mr Ford is also guest editor for this issue.
I LOVE Tom Ford's aesthetic - slinky, sexy, seventies cool. Well tailored, immaculately cut, beautiful pieces that more often than not hark back to the heady super-glam days of Studio 54. My favourites are the fitted long leopard print dress (on Amber Valetta), super-size leopard print suit and the Halston-style white suit -very Bianca Jagger. Also love the gun-metal grey backless dress and the electric blue dresses, which looks amazing on Karen Elson with her fiery red barnet. Great to see original Gucci gals Carolyn Murphy and Amber Valetta in the mix.
Available - to the rarefied few - in January 2011!
