Is Tom Ford ok?

He showed up at the end of his show yesterday looking...a little off? The tight grooming, the perfect posture, the chiseled face...all gone.

He looks like he aged quite a bit during Covid.

Another “disco glam” inspired collection from Tom Ford? Groundbreaking…

by Anonymousreply 1September 13, 2021 2:48 PM

He's sixty. Nothing lasts forever.

OMG what the fuck has he done to his face and lips? He needs to stop!

by Anonymousreply 3September 13, 2021 2:49 PM

Looks like he’s had work done.

Have his ears always looked like that?😳

He needs Spanx and a tailor.

And a mask.

by Anonymousreply 7September 13, 2021 2:51 PM

He's probably exhausted like the rest of us

by Anonymousreply 8September 13, 2021 2:51 PM

I feel he's just a bit of a hack. He makes really pricey tailored basics but they are so blah.

Or they caught him at an awkward angle in the photo

R10. To a point. Very well made. I don’t like his rock star stuff but his suits are amazing. I have many.

by Anonymousreply 11September 13, 2021 2:54 PM

COVID pounds and tired. Also, he has let his figure and workout routine go to hell during COVID and just kinda drank a bit much.

by Anonymousreply 12September 13, 2021 2:57 PM

He needs a haircut! That is easily fixed.

How a fashion maven like Tom Ford can step out like that is really extraordinary.

The hair is bad, the face is bloated and his jacket fit last year. Maybe.

He knew he was being photographed. For such a narcissist to be so dumpy, I call drugs.

[quote] For such a narcissist to be so dumpy, I call drugs.

Well I am not a narcissist but maybe he has health issues. A few days last summer on Prednisone and the isolation and IBD and lockdown and I was the same way.

by Anonymousreply 15September 13, 2021 3:04 PM

Well, he's also got a 73 year old partner who has had health issues and a 7 year old child. Not that he doesn't have help, but that can be a lot.

I've never liked his smugness - he has always come across like an elitist asshole, but doesn't acknowledge how much of his career was supported and promoted by his partner's connections and using other designer's ideas and input.

That's how they age, dummy.

Is the T shirt a v-neck or is it all gappy? He looks like hell.

by Anonymousreply 18September 13, 2021 3:07 PM

I know how he feels. I go back to my job at the end of the month after being home for 18 months. I feel tired and out of sorts. I honestly have no idea how I am going to feel creative again.

by Anonymousreply 19September 13, 2021 3:08 PM

But your job is not to be the face of a fashion brand, dear.

by Anonymousreply 20September 13, 2021 3:10 PM

Looks like he recently had some face work done and it's still settling.

by Anonymousreply 21September 13, 2021 3:41 PM

He's entered the Karl Lagerfeld stage of his career.

by Anonymousreply 22September 13, 2021 3:41 PM

We shouldn't be surprised that he's finally seemed to age, since he turned 60 this year. There's only so much you can do to stave off decay and gravity.

by Anonymousreply 23September 13, 2021 3:43 PM

"ageless" looks eventually break down and it's never pretty. There is only so much smoke and mirrors and high-end engineering.

My God he looks like David Gest in that photo. I wouldn’t have left the house.

He looks like he had work done & it's not settled. Also put on some weight. He does look puffy, maybe as a result or surgery, or drugs / alcohol.

At some point, the "work" just isn't good anymore. Let the old work sail off into the sunset and just take good care of yourself.

by Anonymousreply 27September 13, 2021 5:08 PM

That suit doesn’t fit him at all. The hair is a mess. The glasses make him look special needs.

by Anonymousreply 28September 13, 2021 5:13 PM

R22 - Karl NEVER let himself look sloppy or puffy. He was far too disciplined for that.

R26 - not a good comparison because Michael has always been a jolly queen who hasn't minded a joke at his own expense, has a comedic personality, admits openly that he gets chubby so hey, he'll make some "woman" sized clothes for the average middle class women. Tom Ford has always been far more repulsive to me, personally, because he took himself too seriously.

by Anonymousreply 29September 13, 2021 5:15 PM

This is karma for Ford telling Colin Firth he was fat.

by Anonymousreply 30September 13, 2021 5:18 PM

KL was fat for a good long time.

by Anonymousreply 31September 13, 2021 5:23 PM

R31 - KL wore it very well and was perfectly tailored. Also, he was a different built. He wasn't sloppy, disheveled, and hung-over fat.

by Anonymousreply 32September 13, 2021 5:25 PM

He looks disheveled. The suit is a half size too small and looks too casual. The huge, square, pockets with flaps on the *outside* of the suit look dumb. He should have unbuttoned the suit jacket.

His eyes look puffy, possible recent blepharoplasty (eye job).

R36 - I have always wondered if Karl really went on a diet as he said or he just had wasting.

by Anonymousreply 39September 13, 2021 5:55 PM

Tom Ford's collections are a million times better than the current crap being produced by the likes of Proenza Schouler or that complete joke GCDS.

by Anonymousreply 40September 13, 2021 5:58 PM

I think he dieted r39. He was slim again for a long, long time so his weight loss wasn't the result of illness. He must have really let himself go to get as fat as he did and was probably eating complete crap. Once you cut the crap out of your diet, it's not that difficult to lose weight.

[quote]"One fine morning I woke up and decided that I was no longer happy with my physique. Although I was overweight, I had gotten along fine and had no health problems. But I suddenly wanted to dress differently, to wear clothes designed by Hedi Slimane….But these fashions, modeled by very, very slim boys—and not men of my age—required me to lose at least eighty pounds....I did not think that it was possible to lose so much weight in one year....[But] in fact, it took me exactly thirteen months."

Whatever work he had done didn’t settle yet. He’s heading into Joan Van Ark territory if he doesn’t lay off.

Get on a Peloton fattie!

He’s always been a cunt. Talk about getting the face you deserve.

I am almost 100% sure that Tom Ford will go down the path of Calvin Klein: obvious plastic surgery. Tom Ford is ultra-vain and he will not go allow himself to age naturally.

R48 - well, like good ole KL (diet my foot...that old queen admitted to living on bread and cheese and butter), he has something. I may be wrong about the wasting, but he has some reason for the awful fillers. Also, he was never hot and always looked like he had an ass as sour as his pout.

People have been carrying on like normal since spring - including him. If you have been carrying on like normal for months, you can’t use the “stuck in the house because of Covid with nothing to do but eat” excuse for being fat.

by Anonymousreply 50September 13, 2021 10:02 PM

Let’s be clear- Tom isn’t “stick in a house”. They have a huge complex, chef, etc.

When I’m as wealthy as him, I’m going to hire a gorgeous Puerto Rican to follow me around all day and slap my hand anytime I go to eat.

Seriously, when you're that rich you can have a trainer and a chef to whip your ass into shape.

Guys on Grindr expect him to be a top daddy now, so he's attempting a more grizzled, bearish look.
