Tom Ford has kept relatively mum about the new movie he is working on, except to say that it’s based on a book and someone in the audience at his Fall 2015 fashion show could be cast in the film. The Hollywood Reporter says that the mystery tome Ford will adapt is Tony and Susan, a book written by Austin Wright. Ford’s interpretation of the text will be called Nocturnal Animals

Ford mentions that his film will differ from the book, as he took more than a few creative liberties, but word is the designer will be working with George Clooney to produce the project under his Smokehouse Pictures company. The movie follows a divorcée who gets a package from her ex-husband: a manuscript for his latest book that he wants her to read and review. 

Of course, we’re still wondering which front-row celeb from his recent show might star in the movie…

Is Amal Clooney Getting a Vogue Cover?

If there’s anyone we would love to see on the cover of Vogue, it’s Amal Clooney. Smart, stylish and married to Hollywood’s former perma-bachelor, George Clooney, she seems like a shoo-in for at least a feature. And sources think that could be coming in the near future. Page Six reports that Amal and Anna Wintour were spied having lunch yesterday at The Lambs Club, which to many seems to indicate that Mrs. Clooney and the Vogue editrix are discussing a possible feature. 

Of course, we won’t know anything until it’s been confirmed, but we can’t think of anyone who would protest an Amal Clooney cover. Anna also attended the pair’s wedding, so it would seem fitting that the relationship would translate into an appearance in the magazine.

We’re crossing our fingers!

Mary Katrantzou has something to celebrate today as the designer has been awarded the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund prize, taking home a year-long mentorship and £200,000 to help build up her buzzy brand. Judged by a panel that included Naomi Campbell, Topshop’s Mary Homer, Samantha Cameron, BFC chief executive Caroline Rush and more, Katrantzou took top honors.

Emilia Wickstead, Mother of Pearl, Osman, Sophia Webster, Holly Fulton and Michael van der Ham were amongst the seven designers nominated for the prize. Clearly, Ms. Katrantzou had stiff competition. “Mary Katrantzou is incredibly deserving of this year’s award,” Vogue UK editor and BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund chair Alexandra Shulman said. “It was an extremely diverse shortlist but ultimately we all agreed that Mary has not only created a strong and hugely appealing identity for her work but that she has put in place measures that, along with the support of this prize, should ensure an exciting and successful next stage of her career.”

Congratulations to Ms. Katrantzou! We can’t wait to see what this infusion of cash does for her label.

Christopher Kane on Knock-Offs and Hating the Term ‘Bossy’

Christopher Kane wishes you would stop using antifeminist language to describe strong, independent women. 

An interview with the Evening Standard took somewhat of a feminist turn once the designer started talking about the women in his life, including Tammy, his older sister and brand creative director. “I’ve always been supported and inspired by the women in my family. Tammy is very strong and my mum was so so strong. They instilled in me the idea that a woman can be anyone. She can have so many roles, she’s a chameleon. That’s what makes her great to dress.”

Indeed, Kane loves strong women so much that, like Sheryl Sandberg and Beyoncé, he is really not into any of the negative terms commonly used for assertive women. “I find it frustrating when women are seen as bitchy or bossy or crazy just because they’re strong. I love strong.” So do we, Christopher.

In the interview, Kane also talks about getting knocked off by high street retailers. He notes that it is indeed upsetting and a bother, but nothing is worse than being copied by another designer. “That always unsettles me,” he said. “There’s no excuse for laziness — and it is laziness. I see it and I think, ‘That was my idea’ but you move on. I don’t get bitter about it. I’ll just be better next season.”
