WATCH: Tom Ford Used To Get Hate Mail From YSL

It’s hard to imagine anyone criticizing Tom Ford for anything, but it turns out that even fashion’s golden boy has his detractors. In a candid interview with CNN, Ford reveals that Yves Saint Laurent wasn’t happy with the direction Ford was taking his eponymous label, and made his thoughts crystal clear in a series of angry letters handwritten to the designer.

Ford tells CNN:

“You know, he was supportive at the beginning…We were quite friendly, we had dinner a few times and I had him up to show him the first collection…But when I started to get great press and the business started to become sucessful, Yves became really quite hostile and we had a little bit different taste. I have letters that he wrote to me about it, you know: ‘In 13 minutes on the runway you have destroyed 40 years of my career.'”
