A lesson in confidence by Tom Ford
The name Tom Ford and in-your-face sex-appeal are one and the same. A master of detail, from slinky cocktail dresses and elegant tailoring to his directorial debuts, no detail is left untouched by his impeccable hand. Like other recreations, we take our Tom in careful doses – a sleek carryall here, a blazer there – and this season, the stiletto says it all. Blood red velvet and a sharp spike heel add an undeniable vamp to any ensemble, perfect paired with a smoking jacket and starched oxford. These are shoes to get into some trouble.
