The famed fashion designer-turned-director talks to Tina Brown about A Single Man, his own life, a nasty letter from Yves Saint Laurent, and the spiritual side of $75 socks.
Tina Brown is a journalist, magazine editor, columnist and talk-show host. Born a British citizen, she has since taken United States citizenship.
She rose to prominence in the American media industry as the editor of the magazines Vanity Fair from 1984 to 1992 and of The New Yorker from 1992 to 1998.
In October 2008 she partnered with Barry Diller, chairman of IAC/InterActiveCorp to found and edit The Daily Beast. In November 2010, The Daily Beast announced that it will merge with the American weekly news magazine Newsweek in a joint venture to form The Newsweek Daily Beast Company. Brown will serve as Editor-in-Chief of both publications.
Thomas Carlyle "Tom" Ford is an American fashion designer and film director. He gained international fame for his turnaround of the Gucci fashion house and the creation of the Tom Ford label.
Wow. It must be exhausting to perform like that all the time. Tom Form playing Tom Ford™. I wonder if anyone, including himself, ever sees the real person underneath all the BS, self-centredness and self-conscious projection.
