Tom Ford Fall 2015 Front Row

Tom Ford Fall 2015 Front Row

While some editors and models were headed to London for round two of fashion month, Anna Wintour, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls headed west for the Tom Ford Fall 2015 show which was showcased in LA on Friday (February 20).

The result, a packed A-List front row of which nineteen looks have been featured.

With the Oscars on Sunday and with everyone in town, it was quite a master-stroke to host the show in LA this weekend.

TOM’S FAVOURITES
Julianne Moore: The actress was no doubt top of the guest list working a Spring 2015 green ensemble festooned with feathers, sequins and camo print. I would not bet against Julianne wearing Tom Ford on Sunday despite the Givenchy run up.

Gwyneth Paltrow: I expected a bit more from Gwynie. This cold shoulder Pre-Fall 2015 LBD feels a bit been there done that and boring for such an occasion.

The Carters: He was looking mighty dapper in a signature wide lapel suit, while she was looking bootylicious in a typically sheer embellished Spring 2014 creation.

THE GOLDEN GIRLS
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: Shimmering on the red carpet, the model put forth an effortless stance in her gold drape back Pre-Fall 2015 dress styled with matching sandals. This shorter hairstyle was such a good move for her. She’s looking sexier than ever.

Scarlett Johansson: This was by far my favourite look of the whole night. I hate this word, but fierce immediately sprang to mind. Along with bold, cool and supremely confident. I love how this Pre-Fall 2015 look is oozing with sex appeal despite not trying. Any thoughts that she has lost her mojo has been dispelled.

Naomi Campbell: Fresh off a plane from London Fashion Week, the supermodel sparkled in this one-sleeve creation which was let down by boring styling.

SUITED UP
Rita Ora: The British singer, who is performing at the Oscars on Sunday, was my second favourite of the night. Her crisp white suit which marries formality with sex appeal while totally nailing cool sophistication.

Gia Coppola: The director cuts a fine figure in her Spring 2011 suit. Not one to usually make such a splash, I love how the animal print gives the look a downtown edge.

Amy Adams: The actress was oozing 70s charm wearing a bold red suit with bell-bottom trousers. I probably like this more for the colour rather than the bell-bottom style.

I CAN SEE YOUR UNDERWEAR
Olivia Munn: The ‘Newsroom’ actress was of course part of the panty revealing brigade and I have to say I don’t mind this Pre-Fall 2015 look at all. Very much in tune with her sexy persona.

Miley Cyrus: I have a feeling this will be universally hated, but extremely sheerness aside, I really love the delicate, gothic-inspired nature of this Fall 2011 gown if I don’t look too near her nether regions.

Nicole Richie: Opting for pink hair, this was a clearly a move to try to distract the fact that she’s done this look several times before.

THE LBDs
Sofia Vegara: For me it’s always groundhog day when it comes to Sofia’s style. The lace up portion of this Fall 2012 dress is not working for me. Not because it’s showcasing her famed cleavage, but because it looks cheap.

Reese Witherspoon: Of all the dresses at her disposal, I would’ve loved the ‘Wild’ actress to have had more fun with her look.

Fergie: Hair and (lack thereof) makeup are killing this Tom Ford for Gucci Resort 2004 look for me.

THE REST
Jennifer Lopez: With so many A-listers at this event, I was not surprised to see Jennifer trying to make the biggest noise in an attempt to stand out. Not one thing is remotely appealing about this look. This is the very definition of trying too hard, starting with that overused facial expression.

Elizabeth Olsen: If all that bedazzlement caused sensory overload, this black Pre-Fall 2015 gown with is she-wearing-underwear? slashed detailing should calm your senses. Never seen Elizabeth do sexy before. It works really well for her. Especially as she’s working it in such a cool, laidback manner.

Cody Horn: With everyone but Rita Ora and Amy Adams opting for dark colours, this ombre Asian-inspired embroidered Tom Ford for Gucci Spring 2003 dress instantly caught my attention, especially when paired with those lovely maroon velvet sandals.

Who stands out for you?

    Just realised how awful J-lo looks here. WDOTY contender.

  2. Erin February 23, 2015 at 19:51 #

    Rosie, Scarlett, Gia and Sofia.

  3. Noemi February 23, 2015 at 04:00 #

    I love Scarlett. So much tackiness, JLo is the queen of it, here.

  4. kane February 22, 2015 at 17:27 #

    I can’t say I love any of these, but RHW and Elizabeth look fine, I like Cody’s dress and the pic of Scarlett looks like the most perfect promo shot for Under the Skin.

    The other end of the spectrum is far more crowded, I’m especially aghast at Fergie’s face.

  5. TL February 22, 2015 at 12:33 #

    Rosie is the only one I like. The rest are…meh. To be honest, most of their outfits are ugly.

  6. Carolina February 22, 2015 at 04:53 #

    I’m gonna scream if I see Beyonce wearing ANOTHER embellished black dress. Seriously.

  7. Prudence February 22, 2015 at 03:45 #

    I wish you had included Amber Valetta, she was the best of the golden girls.
    Rita Ora is my fave simply because she has never looked better! Gia is also killing it I was dyinggg when I saw that look on the runway the first time it was styled so much better as well!
    JLO……….the tackiest of them all, girl sit down! Beyonce is also typically over the top and try-harding sooo she can sit down too. Nicole and Miley should have stayed home their looks were beyond tragic.REESE…………….only you could manage to look this basic and lame in a tom ford creation!

  8. Nikki February 22, 2015 at 03:24 #

    Scarlett’s look is my favourite and I like Rosie’s. BUT, in my humble opinion, switching shoes with each other would have improved their respective looks greatly.

  9. Nat39 February 22, 2015 at 03:19 #

    Rita Ora in the suit is my fave. Loving the cool edge the sleek haircut and strong eye makeup add to the sexy and sophisticated suit, and her commanding (w/o being ott) presence.

  10. lin February 22, 2015 at 02:58 #

    Jennifer Lopez’s dress is the worst by far. Tacky tacky tacky!

  11. pipsqueak February 22, 2015 at 02:52 #

    They all looked really good! These clothes looked better than those on the runway (too much Santa Fe western for my taste). It’s a tough decision but I voted for Gia, because her look was the hardest to pull off. Full-on leopard print and it could’ve gone wrong, looking like a Halloween costume. But she looked sharp and feminine.

  12. Bailey February 22, 2015 at 01:10 #

    Rosie is by far the best! She is the only one that looks sexy rather than tacky

    • Phoenix February 22, 2015 at 02:23 #

      +1 Rosie by far. Overall this is one heck of a tacky event.

  13. gabis February 22, 2015 at 00:58 #

    Is it standard to pick the designer’s worst pieces to attend these events? Only Rosie looks any good. The rest is bad enough to make me ask myself how Tom Ford managed to be one of the most desired fashion brands in the industry and really exactly why people would almost kill to wear his creations.

    • jhh36 February 22, 2015 at 01:05 #

      Well said.

  14. Southern Cross February 22, 2015 at 00:40 #

    Really I have to give it to Rosie, who just has so much effortless flair and style; but I WANT to give it to Rita to acknowledge how much better she did with this choice than many of her previous get-ups!

  15. pinksugar February 21, 2015 at 23:00 #

    Love Beyonce, Julianne, Olivia, Nicole, and especially Scarlett. I can usually get on board with anything JLo wears but she took this look from hot to hookerville with her awful shoe choice.

  16. JHH36 February 21, 2015 at 22:50 #

    Jennifer Lopez’s dress is fugly and what is up with the black patch?

  17. Sarah February 21, 2015 at 22:39 #

    Scarlett, Rosy, Cody and surprisingly Rita who does not look like the usual mess she does.

    • Sarah February 21, 2015 at 22:39 #

      *Rosie

  18. Alex February 21, 2015 at 21:30 #

    Scarlett is fabulous!

  19. TeaAtTwo February 21, 2015 at 20:38 #

    If Amy’s suit pants were cut like Gia’s or Rita’s I would have loved her look.

  20. TeaAtTwo February 21, 2015 at 20:36 #

    I really like Scarlett, Rita, Rosie and Cody’s looks from head to toe. I like Naomi’s and Fergie’s dresses but not their styling and Julianne’s clutch.

  21. Charlotte February 21, 2015 at 19:32 #

    I like the 3 golden girls !

  22. Ariya February 21, 2015 at 18:36 #

    Scarlett is back at last..Best Dressed!!! Cant wait to see her at the Oscars!
    Julliane Moore, Rita Ora, Gia Coppola and Cody Horn killed it in their respective looks.

    Jennifer, Beyonce, Gwyneth, Naomi, Nicole Richie and Rosie(she looks amazing) are all Been There Done That A Hundred Freaking Times.
    I like Miley’s dress but not on her. Rihanna could have worn it so much better!

    And the rest just look ok!

  23. alvaro_spain February 21, 2015 at 18:36 #

    Rita

  24. Nicky February 21, 2015 at 18:23 #

    Rosie. Amy’s look would have been great if it weren’t for those horrible bell bottoms.

  25. Yeliz February 21, 2015 at 18:14 #

    1. Scarlett – Absolutely love this edgy look.
    2. Rosie
    3. Rita

  26. kelly February 21, 2015 at 18:03 #

    cody’s dress is gorgeous but i love olivia’s outfit and over all look the best

  27. Christine February 21, 2015 at 18:01 #

    Scarlett looks great

  28. Chris February 21, 2015 at 16:58 #

    I really like Julianne’s and Rosie’s outfits, but Scarlett is by far my favorite.

  29. Iva February 21, 2015 at 16:54 #

    Rosie, followed by Cody Horn.

  30. Edie February 21, 2015 at 16:34 #

    This is laughably bad. Bad dresses, bad fitting, bad poses and facial expressions, badly photographed. Seriously, I started at the top shaking my head at the looks, and by the time I got to the bottom I scrolled back up and felt relieved to see Julianne Moore’s beautiful smile again. Oof!

  31. Alina February 21, 2015 at 16:22 #

    Rosie, Scarlett and Elizabeth.
