How Tom Ford Seduced Christopher Bailey During An Interview

Christopher Bailey gave the keynote speech at last night’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, and he told the entire fashion industry about the time Tom Ford tried to seduce him during a job interview.

Bailey’s speech started out with a bit about his former employer, Donna Karan, stripping “naked within about three minutes of meeting” to try on his clothes. In Karan’s defense, we would’ve totally done the same. Then the Burberry creative director revealed how Ford got him to jump ship:

“I got this call: Gucci. Tom Ford had just had a really big, strong collection and he was looking for a senior designer and he wanted to meet me. It was a huge room, quite dark. In the middle of the room there were these two chairs. On one of these chairs there is this chap, sat there with his shirt open to his navel, with a huge gold belt… He had the mind-set that you can create what you like. If you believe in something you can make it happen.”

Anyway, here’s a photo of Ford with a few buttons undone:
