Tom Ford is furious with Amal Clooney for her last-minute Met Gala wardrobe change

Although the Met Gala is over, the outfit drama still lingers on between Tom Ford’s design team and Amal Clooney over a wardrobe change. After weeks of painstaking effort working on Clooney’s dress for the big event, the human rights lawyer decided not to wear it.

Instead, Amal showed up wearing her “backup” outfit by young British designer Richard Quinn: a metallic bustier, cigarette trousers, and billowing floral train. According to Page Six, Amal notified the designers of her last-minute wardrobe change. They were reportedly not pleased with the decision but gracefully accepted her choice to go with another designer. The team also said they would prefer it if Amal did not wear the dress at all that night (if she wasn’t going to wear it on the red carpet) so they would have the opportunity to allow another star to debut the creation at another A-list event.

Vogue staffers pushed Amal to stick with the original wardrobe plan in order to avoid unnecessary drama. After all, Clooney was the co-chair of this year’s Met Gala and cover girl of Vogue’s May issue. But of course, to stir the pot even more, the modern-day fashion icon made the bold move to ignore the design team’s request and changed into their crimson stain-glass window-inspired full-length gown later that evening at a private after party.

Tom Ford debuts watch collection

The American label makes styling your timepiece effortless with an inventive strap system

Recent decades have seen some of the top fashion houses increasingly embracing the world of watchmaking, with the likes of Chanel, Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton leading the way. In fact, it’s almost unusual these days for a label not to include a line of wrist-based accoutrements as part of its range of accessories.

That Tom Ford has waited until 2018 to reveal his first collection of timepieces speaks to the thought that has gone into his horological debut. Its innovation comes through most evidently in its playful interchangeable strap system, allowing the wearer to effortlessly switch between more than 60 different style and colour options. One of the easiest, no-tools-required solutions on the market, the case simply slides on and off the strap, sitting securely on the wrist when the buckle is fastened.

Just as you’d expect from the American designer, the Swiss-made watches exude a sleek and androgynous look, presented in two case diameters of 30mm and 27mm. Featuring a subtly curved rectangular silhouette and contemporary font on the dial, dressier options include an 18ct gold version, while it’s also available in stainless steel and a matte black DLC. They provide the ideal base to pair with the vast array of strap options, including woven braided leather, alligator and pebbled grain leather in hues from toned-down blacks, browns and tan to bolder pinks and reds, making picking the perfect watch to match your outfit easier than ever.

Tom Ford Fall RTW 2018

Tom Ford fall 2018

For fall, Tom Ford went high-glitz, high-glam and audacious.

Such is an element of Ford’s newfound prescription for dressing by day: the “potent piece” integrated with basics, an approach informed, he has said, by mingling with school moms during drop-off. Suffice to say, that must be some school parking lot. These days, Ford’s mad for leggings, but there are leggings and leggings. His favorites: liquid metallic and flashy animal spots.

In fact, though tempering his use of fur, Ford loves an animalia motif — zebra, snake and spots galore, shown with dizzying fortitude, from his take on discretion, the all-black, high-sparkle look that opened the show, to head-to-toe color — tailored suits in acid green and red; an acid yellow mini shift and frilled dresses in purple, red and yellow, all over coordinating tights. There were calmer moments, too — if one can call a racy black jumpsuit with cutout midsection calm (yes, it harkened indirectly to a white jersey Milanese ancestor). Might this have been one of the looks Ford referred to last week, when, voicing frustration with the state of the red carpet, he said, “There’s some things in my women’s show…and I thought, ‘If someone had the guts, this is what they should wear on the red carpet.’” If so — agreed. Then there were the coats. These were fabulous, both chic shearlings with jeweled buttons and everything-but-the-kitchen-sink collaged wonders that worked an off-beat, tricked-out practicality. Potent indeed.

Tom Ford to show at London Fashion Week

Designer Tom Ford will be showing his second womenswearcollection at London Fashion Week this month.

A spokesman at Tom Ford confirmed the rumour, but said that instead of a show, there “will only be a small presentation for international monthly magazines.” Dates and location are yet to be revealed.

New York Fashion Week: Tom Ford’s fashion comeback

The much-missed Ford returned to womenswear after a six-year break, with a collection that drew raptures at New York Fashion Week last September. The riotous show featured long-time Ford devotees, including Julianne Moore, Lauren Hutton and Beyoncé, sashaying down the catwalk in his glamorous Seventies-inspired beaded gowns.

Ford’s presentation in London cements the city’s importance on the fashion week calendar, showing how it’s now a serious rival to New York, Paris and Milan. Its international press-pulling power was bolstered by Burberry’s decision to show in 2009. The luxury brand continues to show in the capital, attracting big-name stars like Emma Watson and Sarah Jessica Parker on the front row.

Tom Ford spring 2011 Editoral in W Magazine

    Holding out on magazines until December paid off for Tom Ford. Ford’s collection was already featured in a dedicated Vogue December 2010 editorial, but I have the feeling that the forthcoming W Magazine’s Tom Ford editorial is going to be my favorite.

“Major Tom” is the new Tom Ford editorial featured in W Magazine January 2011 issue. Ford’s new Spring 2011 collection is of course showcased, alongside an interview, in a photoshoot by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Madin, modeled by Lara Stone.

In the interview Tom Ford opens up about the women who inspired his collection:

About Daphne Guinness: “Daphne is about structure, so the most important thing is that her dress is corseted and shows off her incredible figure. She is also not a shrinking violet and can pull off fashion looks that many would be afraid of. I wanted her to have one of the most dramatic looks in the show.”

About Rachel Feinstein: “Every time I see Rachel, I am dazzled by her smile, and I think about color. Rachel is all about color.”

About Karen Elson: “Karen in such an exotic beauty, I always love dressing her in color that plays off her skin tome and hair color.”

About Lou Doillon: “Lou is young and has an amazing body. She was the perfect person to wear a catsuit-Le smoking.”
