Everything Tom Ford's ever done, the entire trajectory of his career, was leading up to just one job: designing clothes for James Bond.
Ford was the main man getting Daniel Craig in spiffy stylish shape for the last Bond film, Quantum of Solace, and it's just been announced that he and his heavenly eye will be back on set for the upcoming installment in the secret agent franchise, Skyfall.
The designer will be working with Jany Temime, the costume designer best known for her work on the Harry Potter films, and seems pretty excited about the job, obvs: "James Bond epitomises the Tom Ford man in his elegance, style and love of luxury. I am thrilled to move forward with this iconic character."
We're thrilled too! Just one question: who's the idiot that decided that Tom Ford should only be designing clothing, not also wearing it on camera? He doesn't have to play the part of James Bond, but if you've got TOM FORD working on your film, why wouldn't you put him in the film? He's even prettier than his clothing. In fact, instead of a standard runway show next season, Tom Ford should just strut around the runway wearing his menswear collection. Or you, know, not wearing his menswear collection. For hours, on tape!
