Tom On The Runways, Lim At Home, And More…


As our reviewers have been noting, Tom Ford’s influence is being felt on the women’s runways. The guy himself may soon be back up there, too. WWD reports that Ford has been quietly scouting designers for the womenswear line he’s been promising. Oh, and Oscar hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin will be wearing TF tuxes at the show, so don’t worry, men of the world—Tom isn’t abandoning you, either. [WWD]

The Gentlewoman, the ladies’ mag from the guys behind Fantastic Man, launches next week in Paris, but a few early details have leaked already. Most tantalizing among them: The first issue’s cover girl is Celine’s Phoebe Philo. Yes, please. [WWD]

The Sunday Times pays a visit to Phillip Lim at his Soho loft, which he shares with his adored French bulldog, Oliver. What you’ll find there: a stuffed bird, a giant croc-skin “rug,” and a very Zen-sounding designer, given to pronouncements like “Some days peanuts; some days shell.” [NYT]

And Alice in Wonderland opens at long last today, which means the floodgates are open for (even more) media coverage. Our favorite recent bit: Helena Bonham Carter based the despotic Red Queen on her two-year-old daughter, Nelly, of whom she says: “Orders, orders, all the time. No pleases. No thank yous. Totally selfish. No empathy.” [Times U.K.]
