Tom Ford Makes Me Feel Ugly
Which is probably his raison d’Ãªtre. He exacerbates my insecurity complex. Here’s Tom Ford in Prestige magazine, looking hot and rich. He’s unleashing a menswear line upon the world which I’m sure only rich and beautiful people can afford.
My issue with Tom is that in one part of the interview he’s all about how much “confidence” is a turn-on and how everyone should be confident. And then he spouts this:
“I take pride in my appearance. And dressing well is kind of good manners, if you ask me. You’re inflicting yourself on the public in the same way as a piece of furniture. When you’re standing in a room, your effect on that room is the same as a chair’s effect, or a sculpture. You’re part of someone’s view, you’re a part of that world, and so you should . . . I find it’s a show of respect to try to put on your best face and look as good as you can.”
Jesus, f*cking christ. Who needs the pressure? Does this mean I can’t go out in a hoodie with my face all scruffy? What if I have a zit (or three)? Huh? What if I can balance a beer bottle on my f.u.pa.? Who the hell can be “on” all the time? Soulless fashion robots, that’s who. “Inflicting yourself on the public”? Holy shite! You’ve inflicted yourself on my psyche, asshole!
