There are so many photos i would like to post here, but they are all in my computer: I don't know what the sources are anymore! Plus, they are not about his life 'after Gucci' - they are about his life at Gucci.

I miss those days. I was very young and looking at those magazines I always wanted to belong to that opulent Gucci universe he created and represented himself... Looking at those models, the impression on their faces, the clothes, the image, even the lighting. Everything was perfect and so gilded with opulence and freedom.

I belong to the minority who prefers his YSL to Pilati's. Without any doubt at all. His vision was so perfect - rich and heavy with glamor. I hate that very simplistic description, but it was that - true 'modern' French glamor. People must see that it was him and his team that made YSL what it is today - before Ford, YSL was a company with millions of licensing deals that were selling plastic sandals for 20 bucks. He elevated the brand so much higher than anyone else could ever do. And while doing taht, it made the dusty brand young again - hip and modern. Even Pilati's vision sometimes looks dated to me.

Tom was one of the few designers who could use heavy velvets and black lace/brocade and could manage to make them look young.

Tom Ford, who as long ago as 1995 designed the Gucci velvet hipsters worn by Madonna, has also had enough.

I think the 'HIPsters' and 'hipsters' are two very different things, lol.

I think the 'hipster you are referring to are hiphuggers.




...would be her most famous Gucci look by Tom Ford. The ad featured Amber in actual velvet low-rise hiphugger pants. Also, Gwyneth wore the famous burgundy velvet tux designed by Tom, and images can be found in his website - the editorial advertising, not with Gwyn in them.
