Tom Phwoard!

Today is a good day for fashion. The BAFTA nominations have been announced (oh yes my lovelies, only a month to wait for more A-list red carpet frolics), and Coco before Chanel and Tom Ford’s directional debut A Single Man have 7 nominations between them (both are obvs up for best Costume Design).

Coco before Chanel was fantastic (if you haven't yet seen it do....don't tackle the book though, it's a bore!), but it’s A Single Man’s impending release which has really got my fashion juices flowing (check out the trailer if you haven't already). Set in the 1960’s the film has been described as being visually like one Italian Vogue editorial after another (shiver down spine). Not only is it directed by Ford – i.e. THE most stylish man currently walking the earth, but the sets are by the team behind Mad Men – i.e. THE most stylish programme on TV. All in all it is a visual feast....a study in perfectionism and beauty...a veritable style-fest! As well as Costume Design A Single man is also up for Best Actor for Colin Firth, and Rising Star for Nicholas Hoult. Tom Ford definitely seems to agree with the latter as he’s cast Nicholas as the Face of his Spring/ Summer 2010 campaign – a great gig for a boy who’s best known for his roles in About a boy and Skins, eh! Not that I’m complaining; as usual the ads are oozing with that very special brand of Tom Ford style and sex which just makes you, well, lust – whether it be for his latest sunglasses, suit, fragrance, or, erm, Face. Ooh, I’ve just come over all Sam Taylor-Wood...
