Oh Tom Ford, how much I do love thee? I’m not sure if I have a huge gay crush or just want to come back as him next life. I saw the OWN network mini-docu Visionaries on him last week and I can’t stop watching it.
He is a perfectionist genius with so much personal style that he just makes me squeal with delight (yes I said squeal)!
Tom got his big break when he went to work for Gucci and he has had my heart ever sense. I was thrilled when he went on to do his own line though his menswear line has been a little hit and miss. Not in the design aspect at all but in the actual designing! As far as I can tell he did not do a collection for 2012 for his menswear line. But there are always his accessory’s. Eye glasses being a very consistent and wonderful part of his collections.
Then there is of course the movie. I actually liked A Single Man. I thought he did a wonderful job bringing the book to life and certainly far exceeded what most people thought he could do. I would like to see him direct more films, however, if it is between movies and his genius talent as designer and style provocateur then I will have to cast my vote to fashion.
