“It’s very easy if you are Tom Ford when you own your own menswear factory to open your closet and pull out a velvet jacket,” he tells Yahoo Style. While it’s no surprise that the fashion mogul wears his own attire, Ford did let us in on one of his personal style secrets. You know you’ve made it in Hollywood when you earn the support of one of the biggest movie stars in the world — another dude named Tom.
Tom Brady has never hidden his love for designer Tom Ford — the Patriots quarterback has a guilty penchant for the brand’s suits and sneakers.
We defy you to watch Nocturnal Animals and not be freaked out by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays the kind of bad guy nightmares are made of.
In the fallout of the election, one key question that the fashion industry keeps returning to is whether or not designers who disagree with President-elect Donald Trump’s politics will refuse to dress his wife, future first lady Melania Trump. During an appearance Wednesday morning on The View, Tom Ford stated that he will join Sophie Theallet as one of the designers who will not be outfitting Melania. “Even had Hillary won, she shouldn’t be wearing my clothes,” said Ford.

As exciting as New Year’s Eve can be, it’s often riddled with stressful situations: Where will you go? Who will you kiss at midnight? What will you wear? And for men, in particular… how the heck do you actually tie a bow tie?
It’s been a good year for fashion. We’ve talked about what to wear to various holidays and occasions, where to find the best “It Bag,” how to pack like a pro, and even what classics should be in your wardrobe. As the year draws to a close, we offer one last hurrah — what to wear on your New Year’s getaway of course! Here, Yahoo Style editors suggests five varied looks based on their own personal travels.
This year, Rita Ora’s received a lot of stick for her “The X Factor” fashion misses. But as her style file shows, the singer has had multiple fashion hits - and graced numerous best dressed lists in a divine array of Prada, Tom Ford and Marchesa. As the “Body On Me” crooner turns 25, we take a look at her best red carpet moments and prove that she can pull off a ballgown (and a ravishing red dress) like no other. Which of the singer’s looks is your favourite?
Fortunately there are plenty to choose from thanks to designers such as Altuzarra, Gucci, and Alexander McQueen. “I think it’s best if you team it with denim or leather,” says stylist Emily Barnes who savvily dressed model Cameron Russell in a black lace Altuzarra top and Baldwin denim pencil skirt for the recent CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards.
The dashing Daniel Craig has reprised his role as James Bond for the fourth time in the upcoming Spectre, which has already broken box office records in the UK. And while we can’t wait to see the nail-biting action sequences (brilliantly imagined by director Sam Mendes), Bond’s impeccable style is also a draw. While Brioni outfitted the Bonds of yore, Mendes called his pal Tom Ford to design the well-tailored suits this time around. But it’s not just Craig interpretation of the character that has caught our eye — Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery, and Timothy Dalton were quite to-do as well.

Photo: A woman named Angelababy, one of the most famous Chinese actresses today, married Huang Xiaoming in a wedding that reportedly cost nearly 200 million yuan — that’s $43 million. The bride, who was born Yeung Wing and got her unique moniker by combining her chosen English name, Angela, with her nickname, baby, is basically China’s Kim Kardashian equivalent (she has one of the most followed Weibo accounts in the world) and threw an extravagant celebration, widely considered to be one of the biggest in the world. To put this into context, Kevin Kwan, the author of Crazy Rich Asians explained the affair as such: “If Chris Evans were to marry Jennifer Lawrence in a very public, all paparazzi invited wedding held at Radio City Music Hall, that would not even come close to the magnitude of this wedding.” The massive venue decorated in pinks, purples, neon lights, and flowers.
Cate Blanchett appeared not once, but twice this week in these retrofantastic frames from Gucci. The sunnies seemed to convey a different look for the actress who is known for being a bit of a style chameleon. The overall vibe was equal parts boss lady and ‘70s-era don. Feeling inspired?
When I think of pinstripes, three things come to mind: 1920s gangsters, boxy ‘80s power suits, and overall executive realness. But recently, the pinstripe has gotten a facelift. See Kendall Jenner, who was just seen out in Paris with pal Cara Delevingne, sporting a midriff-baring pinstripe jumpsuit by Alessandra Rich—the same style Chrissy Teigen was seen wearing in August. They were seen throughout the fall collections, too, as reinterpreted by mega designers like Versace and Jenner/Kardashian family favorite, Balmain.
The showers at Hussein Chalayan’s SS16 show revealed glittering party dresses. Photo: Three weeks into fashion month, Hussein Chayalan managed to do something totally new on his runway in Paris on Friday morning—give his models a shower. Chayalan’s Cuba-inspired collection made its way around the paper-clad models until splash! The water from the showers melted the jackets, revealing sparkling party dresses underneath, made in collaboration with Swarovski. “That was to represent the transformation of a militant kind of situation [in Cuba] to a more playful one,” Chalayan told Vogue after the show. He said there were a lot of challenges using water on a runway—a runway’s slippery when dry, let alone wet, and the girls were visibly chilled—but that he likes taking risks.
No one knew if Tom Ford would even show his spring collection within the confines of the fashion calendar. The designer’s tried a few different things: star-studded runway show in New York, intimate presentation in London, dazzling Hollywood extravaganza in Los Angeles. The full-blown Soul Train dance party featured a gaggle of models, including Lucky Blue Smith, and then Lady Gaga. Having a runway show has become so much about the creation of imagery for online and social media and watching a filmed fashion show can be like watching a filmed play [which is never very satisfying].
Three years ago, the Business of Fashion released its first official BOF 500, a definitive list of 500 people shaping the $1 trillion fashion industry. Models, editors, photographers, designers, billionaires—the comprehensive guide to who’s who featured Tom Ford on its inaugural cover, then Karl Lagerfeld in 2014. This year, the digital site’s editor-in-chief Imran Amed followed print’s lead and thought social for his cover. Eight influencers from across the world cover the supplement, which was illustrated by Instagram sensation Helen Downie who, at the handle @unskilledworker, has nearly 200,000 followers.
When Tom Ford launched his full color beauty collection in 2011, beauty editors and makeup artists around the world rejoiced. Many had already fallen for his collection of fragrances, which first launched in 2006 with the cult favorite Black Orchid, so his rich lipsticks and smoky shadows were welcomed into the beauty world with open arms. “A lot of people still don’t know who I am, and the product sells better with me in the ads.” In honor of his birthday, we are looking back at 13 of the best ads for his beauty and fragrance collections.
With September just a few weeks away, you’ve probably already started planning your upcoming fall looks — even if your planning is more “mental list” than “mood board.” One thing that better be on the list is one of fall’s biggest shoe trends: velvet. Known for its plush softness and air of nobility, velvet made plenty of fall collections, from Dries Van Noten to Givenchy. Here are 11 shopable options that’ll have your feet feeling fuzzy.
Applying oil to your skin, especially when you’re sweaty, seems counterintuitive. But the truth is, oil is easily absorbed, keeps skin hydrated and soft by trapping moisture, doesn’t clog your pores, and can enhance the appearance of a tan. Try these 10 skin treats post-shower for a gorgeous glow and a delicate scent.
Model Ruby Rose, the breakout star of Orange is the New Black’s third season, recently revealed that she is engaged to Phoebe Dahl (granddaughter of the famed Roald). On the big day she is not planning to wear a flouncy gown or an elaborate wedding dress. “I want to do a tux, like a really nice fitted suit, Givenchy or a Tom Ford,” she told People. Cheers to that!
A notorious perfectionist, Tom Ford has admitted that his precise ways have been upended by having a child.
Designers, models, muses, and industry bigwigs gather at Lincoln Center in New York City to honor the best designers of that year—in menswear, womenswear, and accessories—and celebrate the CFDA itself, which prides itself on nurturing young and emerging designers. This year’s host was James Corden, who’s quickly earned America’s love as the host of the The Late Late Show with James Corden on CBS. While he later told Yahoo Style the crowd “was a lot warmer than I though it was going to be. A pleasant surprise,” there were plenty of gasps during his piercing monologue, which skewered everyone from Terry Richardson (who became a sort of running joke throughout the night) to beleaguered American Apparel CEO Dov Charney, and former Ambercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries. He told her after the show and said the West family only throw tantrums on stage.” Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen took home the CFDA for Womenswear Designer of the Year. When Marc Jacobs sent his now legendary grunge collection down the Perry Ellis runway, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen still had three years left of Full House. But tonight, the twins beat out Jacobs, as well as Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Joseph Altuzarra, and Michael Kors, for the night’s biggest award.
