Tom Ford on the Women Behind His Womenswear

Tom Ford is everywhere these days! After editing the holiday issue of French Vogue, sharing some snaps of his super-secret runway show with Harper’s Bazaar, and outfitting models in his new line in American Vogue, Ford decided to chat with W Magazine about the lovely ladies who first wore his womenswear looks last fall and who inspired his designs. This embroidered silk dress with fringe was designed for Karen Elson: “Karen is such an exotic beauty, I always love dressing her in a color that plays off her skin tone and hair color,” Ford tells W. “The cobalt blue of the dress seemed exactly right.”
