Tom Ford Warns Gisele to Start Worrying Now About Losing Her Looks

Gisele was never beautiful beautiful. It's her body that was in demand, not her face.
Tom is right: fading beauty is a cruel thing for most women, certainly women who've made careers out of their looks but I believe Gisele won't have any problems because she's ridiculously wealthy; she's Brazilian and like I said her face wasn't the main attraction.

There are plenty of older women who've aged gracefully. Sophia Loren and Catherine Deneuve spring to mind. Maybe it's because they're not American. If that's the case, Giselle should be fine.

Don't know why he focused on that witch-looking Gisele, as she is certainly not known for her beautiful face. But everything he says is true. If Faye Dunaway had decided to age naturally, and ease into character parts, she would still have a thriving career, and respect for her work. Instead, she decided to try and compete , at 60+, with younger actress', and sustain a 'glamour look' in roles- instead of going for the juicy parts, a woman of her age could have. Vanity is all.

Really thoughtful of Tom to be so discreet as to not name names so as not to embarrass any of those women.
One can only guess as to why he wouldn't have exercised the same judiciousness before making this public plea to Gisele.

Considering that her cumulative income to date, including her husband's, is in the $300 million range (and Tom has another decade of $20-million-a-year football to look forward to, barring injury), I don't think she has to be terribly worried about losing her looks (which, yes, will happen, even though Tom Ford has somehow figured out how to defy age).

If we're discussing aging models, we must bring up Kate Moss as well. How on EARTH is she still getting consistent, A-list work after a full two DECADES as a model? (and she's lived a party-hard live for much of it on top of it all) I'm pretty sure that's unprecedented - I can't think of any other supermodels who weren't relegated to C-list campaigns after 35 or so.

Clearly has issues with women, but he makes a very valid point. Women lose their value rapidly as they age. Somewhere between 30 and 40, a hot woman goes from the most valuable thing in the world to being basically worthless.
Most women don't seem to grasp that their gifts are temporary. They think they'll be the center of attention until they die. Ford is right. It must be very difficult to go from "hero to zero" like that. But, dude obvioiusly has issues w/ women.

It's not about money, it's the psychological toll it takes on women when they find they are no longer the center of attention, when younger women, at the height of their sex appeal, eclipse them. And if Tom Brady decides to go for a younger wife (it could happen).

All male fashion designers become hugely bitter and offensive as they age--indeed, I think they were secretly bitter and offensive when they were younger, but no one noticed either because they were hot when they were young or at least cute. Now Tom's hitting his 50s he's turning into Karl Lagerfeld. I foresee very quickly in his future a large duenna's fan, plus many comments about the Oksen twins and Miley Cyrus.

I don't think that's the reason. Naomi Campbell has been a tabloid staple for years thanks to her rage issues, but she hasn't worked consistently in eons (and has now whored her pussy out to a Russian oligarch to treat her in the manner to which she's become accustomed, since she can't pay her own way anymore).
I think Kate Moss gets away with it at least in part thanks to airbrushing and personality (as the only British supermodel besides Naomi, she's "cheeky" and likeable); it's not like she still does much runway work.

He's a douche but he's right. While I was never a major model, my identity was totally wrapped up in my looks. I was gorgeous til about 30. Now I'm good looking, but not in that striking way. I NEVER thought I even cared, until it went away. It's fine now, but it was tough to readjust to life after pretty. If you're entire identity is wrapped up in your looks, it would be a thousand times harder than I what I went through.

I'm a formerly young and hot flyover frau far, far from the world of wealth and world-class beauty that the Bradys and Ford inhabit.
Still, when you reach that moment when you walk into a room, get a quick once-over, then notice how all eyes shift to the younger, hotter person and stay there, it's a jarring experience.
Suddenly, through no voluntary act of your own, you've ceded the stage, never again to feel that hot, heady spotlight.
I dwelled on it for a bit, then, bemused,I accepted it.
Of course, fortunately, my exit from an anonymous stage tucked into rural America isn't on a world class stage that Bundchen has.

I remember hearing an interview on NPR with Audrey Hepburn and how she was pretty devastated when she aged out of youthfully pretty- how men wouldn't run and buy gifts, open doors, buy drinks, etc. That was one person that I wouldn't think that would have those kind of feelings.
I've worked with Kate Moss on Halloween a few years ago, and the poster upthread is correct- she's a thing of photoshop- crooked nose (from all the blow), zits, cold sores, flabby body Despite this, she's a fashion muse and icon.
Naomi still works BTW- she did Cavalli earlier this year, and this is from June (photoshopped to hell, naturally):
