Happy Birthday: 5 Reasons We Love Tom Ford
It’s hard to believe that today, designer
Tom Ford turns 49-years-old. To us, he doesn’t look a day older than 30. But despite his youthful looks and rocking body, the amount he’s accomplished in his design career is nothing short of genius.
So we decided to make a list of things Tom Ford has given us that we appreciate the most. The list hypothetically could go on forever, so we just stuck to 5 reasons we love him so much. Feel free to comment below and let us in on why you love him, too!
1.Tom Ford's Movie(s)
Tom Ford's directorial debut in
A Single Man was not only cinematically stunning and incredibly fashionable -- who didn't want Julianne Moore's wardrobe? -- but the story line was incredible, too. We can't wait for his next movie project.
2.Tom Ford's Suits
Gone are the days when jeans and ripped tees were the apex of fashion. We like to think that Tom Ford single-handedly brought the classic men's suit back. With his creations, men have the option of a stylish suit that looks good on just about anyone. Not to mention the excitement of fashionistos everywhere at the resurgence of the wide lapel!
3.Tom Ford's Glasses
Tom Ford arguably has done the whole dorky chic trend the best. We all love his sunglasses, but his eyeglasses trump most luxury brands' optical ranges. And of course, like all Tom Ford products, the advertisements are spectacular.
4.Tom Ford's Lipsticks
When we attended a launch party for Tom Ford's 12-color range of lipsticks, we were elated... until we found out we couldn't test them out. Thankfully though, we were able to try it on later on, and fell in love -- with all 12 colors. Not only are the hues utterly perfect -- the pinks,
the reds, the paler shades -- but the lipstick went on beautifully and, even better, stays on all night.
5.What He Did For Gucci
Tom Ford took that logo-ed up brand and made it luxe and edgy once again. Not only were his collections successful, but his tenure as creative director at Gucci took stocks from $22 per share to a whopping $75 per share in only three years!
