Last week, the very coveted beauty collection by Tom Ford was launched at Bergdorf Goodman. And, knowing the excessively controlling Mr. Ford, he was there for the launch. Which is perfectly normal. He is a man of fashion, a man of the world, he has to be everywhere where his name appears on a product label. And that’s why (partly) women desperately love him.
Because he appears to be a very focused man, a driven individual who knows exactly what he wants, when he wants it and how he wants it (hmmm… wait! That’s not Tom Ford? That’s my Adored Husband I’m talking about!). Although if we remember what he said a while back about him being extremely shy and introspective, all this is just the image of a perfect man he has projected out in the world. (I’ve got the real deal, not the commercial Hologram of a man. But that’s another story altogether!). In support of all written earlier, here’s a little fragment of an interview I would like you to read (here) I think you’ll find funny and interesting, perfectly for a fashionable distraction:
“I was born fifty. When I was five years old, I wanted to be fifty. I knew exactly what I was going to look like, exactly what I was going to be doing. […] I always wanted to be fifty. I never felt like a little kid. I wanted to be at my parents’ cocktail parties. I wanted to live in a glamorous apartment. […] I’m perfectly happy. I could die tomorrow.”
