Designer Surgeon

Picture
Tom Ford,has been baring his soul at the 92Y talk in New York. The designer admitted that, if he weren't a designer, he would like to be doing something more medically inclined.
"In another life I would love to be a cosmetic surgeon because it's architectural," Ford said. "You know, you are trying to figure out where the seams go. Can I do it in one piece like Halston? Can you formaldehyde DNA? A man can't have a facelift very well because they cut here and then you have your sideburns in your ear. I quite like my beard. There is this little gap here. I am always looking to see who's got the hairs growing out of the side of the ears."
As well as noting that he'd love to marry his long-time love Richard Buckley and have children while he's still "able to pick them up," Ford also reflected on his past - talking candidly about the unfriendly letters he received from Yves Saint Laurent, and why he brought Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen into the Gucci Group fold.
"He was very friendly at first," Ford said of Yves Saint Laurent,WWD reports. "We knew each other and he very much wanted me to design the collection. As things started to go well and we started to get good reviews, he was no longer my friend. I actually have some wonderful handwritten letters, very beautiful handwriting. 'In 13 minutes, you have destroyed what I have worked for for 40 years.' I didn't take it very well while he was alive. He was very pointed about me in the press. I haven't seen or talked to Pierre [Bergé] since then, but I have to say one of the reasons I wanted to work at Yves Saint Laurent is that, like most people, I was an incredible fan. I was a little devastated that he felt that way, but then our sales were great, our reviews were great and more and more people were wearing our clothes."
"I took my job very seriously," he said of his time at Gucci Group, now PPR. "I was a good corporate soldier. When François Pinault invested $3.3 billion in our company, I was the only creative designer and I thought it was very important that I was not the only creative designer sitting in this company. So I thought, 'All right, who do I admire, who has potential and who doesn't conflict?'"



No Mothers day

Picture
Christy Turlington Burns won't be celebrating Mother's Day this Sunday with the rest of the US, as a mark of respect and a statement of solidarity to mothers all over the world less fortunate than herself. The supermodel conceived the initiative - called No Mother's Day - with her charity Every Mother Counts to highlight the plight of  mothers who have lost their lives unnecessarily.
"No Mother's Day is a social issue campaign - unveiled at a time when people are thinking about their mums the most - to help raise awareness about a global tragedy that takes the lives of 358,000 mothers every year," Turlington Burns said today. "The cornerstone of the campaign is a social issue film that features mums encouraging other mums to join in solidarity by disappearing on May 13, US Mother's Day. No emails, no phone calls, no social media - because we believe that sometimes 'our silence can speak the loudest for all mothers'. We know that this act of solidarity alone won't save lives, but it will raise awareness and that's the first step in making a change."

Mr Right

Picture
Joan Burstein, Colin McDowell and Katie Grand, among others, have joined the debate about the appointment of Raf Simons at Dior and the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive.
"It is not a surprise that he has got this position as he bought another dimension to Jil Sander as far as sophistication and a touch of glamour was concerned," Browns founder Burstein  the woman who bought Simons' predecessor John Galliano's graduate collection in 1984, 12 years before he was appointed by Dior  told us. "And I am sure he will have the opportunity to develop his great talent at Dior."
"This is a great chance for Raf to prove himself a true all-rounder," legendary fashion journalist and Fashion Fringe founder Colin McDowell added. "I see no reason why he should not succeed in moving Dior in a new direction and I look forward to his collections with great anticipation. It is so refreshing to have another young designer alongside Riccardo Tisci as an haute couture creator."
"I am a huge fan of Raf's, he's smart, clever, interesting and extremely talented," Love editor and long-time Marc Jacobscollaborator  Katie Grand told us. "I think he will modernise Dior's womenswear and I'm very excited to see a fresh, new vision from the house."
"Raf is possibly the most modern designer of our time," fashion consultant Yasmin Sewell added. "Having him take on one of the most historical fashion houses will be, in my opinion nothing short of ground breaking"


Pilati at Armani?

Picture
JUST one day without successor rumours is quite enough for the fashion world and, almost as soon as Raf Simons' appointment brought a year of Dior conjecture to an end, speculation that Stefano Pilati is headed to Giorgio Armani has reared its head again.
Former Fashion News Daily writer Jim Shi Tweeted earlier this week: "My sources are telling me Stefano Pilati is headed to Giorgio Armani with the intention to assume full creative reigns when GA retires."


End of the road

Picture
 Heidi Klum and Seal have each filed divorce papers, following news of their separation in January this year. The supermodel has asked for joint legal custody of their four children, while Seal has requested joint physical custody - meaning that the children would divide their time between both parents. The papers show that the couple signed a post-nuptial agreement, so no assets will be divided. Klum cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. Both parties have asked the judge to reject any spousal claims made.

Super things come in small packages

Picture
Joan smalls appeared for the first time on the international catwalks 11 seasons ago, but the 23-year-old's look is still as fresh as it was on her first season - with designers including Balmain,Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander Wang utilising her adaptable catwalk beauty. Born Joan Smalls Rodriguez - since in Hispanic culture, children take the first surname of each parent to create their own apellidos  or surnames - in Puerto Rico, the model is now based in New York.
After beginning her career in 2007 when she was signed by Elite Model Management, her breakthrough came in January 2010, when Riccardo Tisci booked her to walk exclusively for Givenchy during the couture shows.Since then, Smalls  has been chosen by brands including Calvin Klein Jeans, Chanel, Givenchy, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Roberto Cavalli and Stella McCartney to front their advertising campaigns: a true sign of her bankable, near-supermodel status.


The Del Rey

Picture
You might be able to get your hands on the Del Rey bag earlier that anticipated, after Mulberryreleased a limited number exclusively to three stores in London, New York and Singapore yesterday - over a month prior to the official global launch date. The bag is now available in black and deer brown, with the remaining colours to follow in May.
