The man can do no wrong. After just getting word that Tom Ford is the guest editor of French Vogue‘s December-January issue, WWD‘s treated us to the cover and a peek at an editorial starring Lauren Hutton in Ford’s designs. The cover features model Daphne Groeneveld looking like Ford has put her in a trance, and who can blame her?
According to WWD, Ford accepted the offer from Carine Roitfeld to guest edit her baby over a year ago, before he had decided to show his own women’s collection in NYC this past season. And he truly assumed all the duties of EIC–from editing to casting to styling. “He took his role very seriously,” Roitfeld told the paper. “He is truly multitalented.” The Ford-edited issue, which hits stands November 30, will also feature photography by Terry Richardson, a spread devoted to older women who haven’t gone under the knife, and best of all, family photos of the designer.
