Tom Ford was just ahead of my time in the fashion world, as I started to become fully aware of designer brands and their creative directors just after his departure from Gucci and YSL (though I do remember falling in love with his Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche cherry heels back in 2003 when the sheer concept of wearing high heels seemed very adult indeed..) Aside from Ford's fashion connection, I have been truly excited about the release of this film for quite some time on my film geek side. (Ah the hours I while away on Internet Movie Database keeping up to date with my favourite directors' next projects..)
With Julianne Moore who registers simultaneously on my mental 'woman crush', 'style crush' and 'actor crush' lists, Colin Firth (I've a sneaking suspicion my soft spot for him will only be enhanced by his 'sensitive gay professor' performance) and Mad Men's production designer all in the mix, I'm confident that it can only be a beautiful spectacle of a film, and certainly in the style stakes.
