Wining And Dining With Tom Ford, Street Chic With Jimmy Choo, How To Buy The Dress Off Rosie’s Back, And More…

-------

Last night’s hot ticket was Tom Ford’s talk at New York’s 92nd Street Y, where the outspoken designer sounded off on fashion, film, and the lessons he’s picked up from the industry. Those awaiting his next film will have to wait a few years while he focuses on ready-to-wear, and those looking for a job, polish up your conversation. While on stage, Tom Ford (pictured) said former Gucci creative director Dawn Mello taught him to “only hire people you want to have dinner with.” [@fashionologie]

One more fashion brand is taking it to the streets. Jimmy Choo is launching its own Web site, Choo 24:7 Stylemakers, on which visitors can share tagged photos of themselves in their Jimmys. They’ll keep company with street-style shots by photographer Eddie—a.k.a. Mr. Newton—of editors and celebrities the footwear label has tapped as ambassadors, including Caroline Issa and Jessica Joffe. [WWD]

Passe isn’t passé. To celebrate its 135th birthday, Hermès is bringing back its Passe-Guide bag, with four exclusive styles based on the original to be auctioned online at Christie’s on May 14. For the look-but-don’t-buy set, the handmade bags, originally designed by Henri d’Origny, will be available for viewing through May 27 at London’s Burlington Gardens. [Vogue Italia]

What’s hers can be yours. The red Antonio Berardi dress that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore to the New York premiere of Transformers: Dark of the Moon last June is hitting the auction block: The model is donating her gown to the British Heart Foundation’s Tunnel of Love auction, which takes place later this year.
