Beyoncé + Tom Ford say “Fuck the VMAs”

Okay, so I’ve had a mancrush on Tom Ford since his days turning Gucci into the sickest fashion house on the scene (and the template for Rock & Republic’s poor-man’s-Gucci aesthetic). The man understands the art of sexifying a woman in ways that make me question his sexuality. (Much like my fawning over him makes me question mine.)

Anyway, as I don’t have an ad airing during this year’s VMAs (and I’m not twelve), I won’t be watching this year. But apparently, I’m not the only one missing the party. Beyoncé and a bevy of gorgeous women of different ages (Julianne Moore could still get it) are at Tom Ford’s secret presentation this week, marking his much-whispered-about return to womenswear.

Hilary Alexander tweets:

Fabulous fun sexy glamour see-thru shirts and Beyonce wiggling in silvrr and gold and black mesh python pattern modelling at tom ford

Let’s break that down. Tom Ford is apparently revisitng the luxe-primal aesthetic of his early-’00s work for Gucci. On Beyoncé’s body.

Beyoncé. wiggling. mesh. python. Digest that shit.

NYMag also adeptly explains the importance of this occation:

Because in case you still haven’t internalized how big of a deal it is that Tom Ford is returning to womenswear, look at it this way: Beyoncé chose to model in his presentation — with other famous people, meaning she has to share a spotlight — while the Video Music Awards get underway in L.A. this evening.

But fashion writer Derek Blasberg best underscored the sentiment with:

Abbey Lee Kershaw, Karlie Kloss, Carolyn Murphy, Daria Werbowy, Freja… HOLY SHIT BEYONCE KNOWLES IS MODELING THE COLLECTION RIGHT NOW!!!

Pics Video or it didn’t happen.
