In a first person essay for Vogue, fashion designer and film director Tom Ford candidly shares his coming out journey and his embracing being gay. Continue reading “Tom Ford Shares Coming Out Story With VOGUE”
|Tom Ford and First Lady Melania Trump|
Twitter lost its mind this morning when a quote attributed to fashion designer Tom Ford began to circulate wherein he reportedly referred to First Lady Melania Trump as a “glorified escort.”
Slow your roll, Twitter – Tom Terrific never threw that shade.
The quote that went viral was in reference to the designer refusing to dress the First Lady.
“I have no interest in dressing a glorified escort who steals speeches and has bad taste in men,” is how the quote read, but, no source was attributed.
The comment was probably somewhat believable in that Ford did say during a November 2016 appearance on The View that he had ‘declined’ to dress her some years before explaining, “She’s not necessarily my image.”
He went on to add that he felt his clothes were “too expensive” for a First Lady as he believed the wife of a president has to “relate to everybody.”

But no – Tom didn’t call Melania a “glorified escort.”
But ’Tom Ford’ was trending on Twitter anyway with Trump supporters calling for a boycott of all things Tom Ford.
And that’s where it got pretty funny.
BEING MEAN SPIRITED IS NOT A GOOD LOOK. I AM RETURNING MY TOM FORD PRODUCTS. THANKS. BYE FELICIA.

If a bakery can refuse to sell a cake to a gay couple, Tom Ford can refuse to share his art with someone with whom he has a fundamental difference in beliefs. He doesn’t believe in nudie pics, sugar daddies and plagerism. I get it.

Designer Tom Ford’s new fragrance is perfect for those folks who embrace their personal fabulosity.
Actually, for those who know they are “Fucking Fabulous.”
The limited-edition scent is reported to be a blend of almond bitter oil, tonka resinoid, orris accord, cashmeran, leather accord and clary sage oil – which sounds pretty earthy and sensual.
You’ll be able to purchase the fab fragrance for the low, low price of $310 for a 50ml bottle online or in his boutique stores Thursday, September 7, 2017.
Ok, I really like this. Who doesn’t love the original version of “I Want Your Love” by Chic?
But Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers collaborated on this updated take on the 1978 hit for Tom Ford’s new Spring/Summer 2016 collection with a video directed by Nick Knight. And I think the whole thing shows high style with great music production.
From Rolling Stone:
“Instead of having a traditional show this season, I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online,” Ford said in a statement.
“I have always loved Soul Train which used to be on TV in the Seventies; as it was as much about the clothes as the music, I asked Nile Rodgers to collaborate on a new version of one of his great hits from that time, ‘I Want Your Love,’ and worked with Gaga to record the vocals.
“I then staged a full show in Los Angeles and filmed it with Gaga on the runway.”
