i used to love tom ford. i still do but i liked him as a designer much more during his gucci and yves saint laurent years. his much-hyped and super exclusive spring/summer 2011 show under his own lable, tom ford, was disappointing. i don't care how much the industry people liked his clothes because they are the same people hailing karl lagerfeld as a design genius when his previous two shows say otherwise. having said all that and at the risk of sounding contradictory, i like tom ford's sensibilities. his movie, a single man, was beautiful and his ad campaigns are always provocative and glamorous.
