Oh, please!

Rarely a gay couple together for that long doesnt have "an arrangement" .. it may be just a friendly kiss (I distinctively remember a "Fashion File" episode where Tom kissed Tim, I think twas for Tim's bday or something ... which imho, best gift ever).

On the other hand, Uncle Terry would hump anything ...

Still I think its a beautiful image and unexpected .. I shud be used to see middle aged men making out but this pic certainly stands out.

well, now we can all talk about it in the open since tom ford himself has commented on the same....

Tom Ford Enjoys Kissing Terry Richardson and Watching Straight Porn

* 12/9/10 at 4:05 PM

Tom Ford has always enjoyed talking about sex and naked people. Lately every article about him in fashion magazines seems to have the same formula: him talking about how he refuses to bend over for the Internet and release images from his fashion show right after it walks; him talking about the celebrities in the show and how gorgeous and real they are; and maybe him talking about nudity or sex. Now it's Harper's Bazaar's turn to do the Tom Ford story, and their interview includes more sex stuff than some of the other recent stories, starting with what he thinks is sexy:

One of fashion's sex gods was disillusioned with what many were considering sexy. It's a disconnect that affects him greatly. "Do you want to know what I think is sexy or what the current state of sexy is?" he asks. What's easier for him to describe is what he thinks is unsexy, yet prevalent, today: "Women have turned themselves into these bubble-butted, grapefruit-titted, bloated-mouthed cyberbitches. I'm just not into that."

Ford's ideal is a softer beauty, a calmer sexy. "I think the 1970s will always be the decade for me. Obviously, I grew up in that era, but the beauty standard was touchable, kissable."

What's kissable? Well, Terry Richardson, for one.

To celebrate his return to fashion, Ford spent last fall collaborating on a series of fashion shoots, one with (the extremely heterosexual) photographer Terry Richardson, who just happens to share Ford's affection for the sorts of '70s wrap dresses that breasts may easily fall out of. "I did a shoot with Terry, and we were shooting a girl and a guy kissing in the sunset with a windmill in the background. Terry and I decided to do a kissing shot, so we kissed and kissed and kissed. And Terry is such a soft, sweet kisser. That's what I think is sexy now." Really? Soft kissing with Terry Richardson? "Soft kissing with anyone. There's an anger to everything in our culture right now. And I'm sort of ready for a kind of sweetness and a softness to things."

Lest we think Ford is losing his provocateur touch, however, he does offer, "I watch straight porn all the time. If I go on my computer, there's a button that can connect me to all the sites I look at most often, and they're all porn—and 1stdibs.com. Porn and antiques!"

Sounds about right. We already know he's not using the Internet to look at clothes.

Tom Ford: The Sequel
The designer returns to the forefront of women's fashion and proves he's still the ultimate seducer. See the collection here and read the accounts from his superstar models.
By Derek Blasberg

Tom Ford

Martin Schoeller

I've heard some truly marvelous stories about Tom Ford's interactions with women. Too many to even consider ranking them. Asking Gwyneth Paltrow to bear his children on their first date, which he said was probably true, and feeling up Natalia Vodianova at fittings, which she said is definitely true, though, would top the list. Artist Rachel Feinstein might have the most salacious story of all: "He once put my breast in his mouth. That's the most provocative thing. I remember that," she says, laughing. "I hope he remembers that too."

Ford's familiarity with the female anatomy has been well documented, and not only the nether regions. (He was probably the first designer to monogram a woman's pubic area and then use it as a fashion campaign.) During his now legendary tenure at Gucci, Ford was credited with reintroducing a woman's sexuality to the fashion industry. This season, his desire to connect with beautiful women was a professional one. Tom Ford's reentry into womenswear was the best-kept nonsecret in the business. The King of Sex had returned.

Last September, under the cloak of secrecy, he hosted an intimate cocktail party—cum—fashion show at his menswear store on Madison Avenue. Luminary friends such as Julianne Moore, Lisa Eisner, Rita Wilson, Marisa Berenson, Daphne Guinness, and Feinstein all sashayed down the runway, as did former Ford model favorites Daria Werbowy (who closed Ford's last Yves Saint Laurent show), Liya Kebede (who Ford made a supermodel), and Amber Valletta (who opened the Gucci show that featured low-slung bell bottoms, Ford's first bona fide hit for the house).

Somehow, he even got Beyoncé Knowles to shimmy down the runway in a body-clinging, sparkle-laden gown. "Beyoncé in real life is actually quite quiet and very sweet," Ford says, basking in the pitch-perfect lighting of his new swanky, expanded offices in London's Victoria neighborhood. "But she can really turn it on."

Ford controlled the entire presentation, right down to the music volume, introducing every girl by name and describing her outfit in detail. For added amusement, he catcalled a few of them, teased Eisner for walking too quickly, told model Joan Smalls she might have turned him straight, and then told Beyoncé she definitely did.

While many thought the show was a camp flashback to Parisian couture shows of generations yore, Ford tells me the impetus for the show's format was much more curious and much more camp. "I was on the train from London to Paris, and all of a sudden it just popped into my head: I'm going to do the Don Loper fashion show from I Love Lucy," Ford explains, his legs and shirt open, eyes twinkling. That particular episode, shot in Los Angeles with real Hollywood wives (Dean Martin's and William Holden's among them), is a classic: Lucy wants a covetable Don Loper dress she can't afford. But lo and behold, Loper is doing a fashion show (which he narrates himself) and asks Lucy to model. She sits by the pool too long in hopes of achieving a perfect California bronze but ends up badly sunburned, "and she gets a tweed outfit and she can barely walk. It's all very cute and everyone claps," explains Ford. Of course, his 2010 version was more sexy than cute, and instead of claps he got a standing ovation.

The casting was intentional. "I chose these models because I knew them. I designed these things thinking of them," he explains. Following the Oscars, he thrust himself into designing the collection, using a mental list of about 30 women he would love to dress: "Women I find inspirational and who are archetypes," Ford says. "My collection each season should have something that a woman in her 60s, who is still stylish and lived through the Charlie era, could wear, so Lauren Hutton gets that look. There's something someone of Rachel Feinstein's size should wear and something for someone who is extravagant and shops at a bunch of vintage stores, like Lisa Eisner, should wear."

When the show finished—Guinness was the ?nale in white fringe and her own diamonds, a modern skunk-haired couture Charlie's Angel—all the girls came out and shared a glass of champagne with a stunned, regaled audience. For once, Ford basked in his triumph. "When I went to bed that night, it was the first time ever in my life after a fashion show I went to bed and did not at all worry about the reviews. I felt really good," he says.

Sadly, if anyone missed this debut, he or she missed out for a long time. Ford doesn't know when he'll show again, and not just because he's not sure if Beyoncé will be available for a sequel. Ford's future collections will be shown to members of the magazine press only, in one-on-one appointments. The reason? He doesn't want images or details of his collections to be made public immediately after his show. In fact, he doesn't want them out till the garments are produced and en route to stores. "I don't want to find myself designing for the press," he says matter-of-factly.

This is the reason there was such secrecy around the show. Cameras and even camera-phone pictures were strictly forbidden. "There's no reason people all over the world need to see your clothes 45 minutes after they're on the runway," he explains. He doesn't want his garments to be on the Internet, and thus free game for copycats, or even on the red carpet, "where a magazine puts a percentage on who wore it better. By the time it's in stores, you're bored with it, it's overexposed, and my consumer doesn't want to wear the same jacket she just saw on so-and-so from some TV show."

When Ford left womenswear in 2004, he vowed not to return until he thought he had something new to say. As he admits, his return is a continuation of his previous conversations but primarily the groundwork he laid at YSL. "There was a Tom-Ford-at-YSL feeling to the show," he says. "At YSL, I started dressing a more—and when I say mature, I don't mean old—woman. I was almost 40 when I started at YSL, and I was moving to a different place."

One of fashion's sex gods was disillusioned with what many were considering sexy. It's a disconnect that affects him greatly. "Do you want to know what I think is sexy or what the current state of sexy is?" he asks. What's easier for him to describe is what he thinks is unsexy, yet prevalent, today: "Women have turned themselves into these bubble-butted, grapefruit-titted, bloated-mouthed cyberbitches. I'm just not into that."

Our conversation veers into a subject Ford professes is his least favorite: how fabulous he looks. It was a hot topic after his show in New York. When the lights flashed on, there in the middle of the room magically appeared Tom, fit and fine at 49, looking better than he had years before. He looked healthy; he looked good.

He likes to think his newfound sobriety is the explanation. "There was a mega cocktail culture through my whole career," reminisces Ford, who used to roll out cocktail carts for his design staff at 5:00 P.M. and could put away four vodka tonics before his own fashion shows. "But I realized I wasn't drinking to relax; I was drinking to escape. That's why I saw a therapist, to see exactly what I was trying to escape from." Their conclusion: "I was trying to escape from boring goddamned industry dinner parties, which I don't go to anymore."

He's back in the business, but he's steering clear of the party circuit. He's lost 12 pounds and can eat anything he wants. He says he couldn't gain weight if he tried. "All that puffiness that you have from alcohol just went away, and my cheekbones popped back out, I guess," he says with a smile. When I protest that he looks better than any sober 49-year-old I've ever met, he smiles again. "I really mean this: I've never been happier in my life. If anything, I have too many good things happening right now, and that's wearing me out! And you look better when you're happy."

I'd kiss Uncle Terry depending on how much he'll pay.

Why does he only watch straight movies? He confuses me, I wish his work was more homoerotic.

Is that Tom's boo? Thumbs up to Tom (or the editor) for having Richard in the front facing position in the photo. Even though I think that Tom is a calculating SOB with ice water running through his veins,* it is a sweet picture and made me smile.

* Although, don't assume that I have not on more than one occasion admired his evil genius antics.
