Q. What eminent designer puts what seems like 150 looks on the runway — bottom-grabbing pencil skirts; tiny purple Floradora dresses — and forbids photography (apparently to lend an air of exclusivity, but in this case, maybe to protect his reputation) and emerges on the runway at the end of the show, then stands around with a bunny-in-the-headlights look in his eyes, waiting for a standing ovation that never comes?
A. Tom Ford.
–Lynn Yaeger made up this delightfully witty, refreshingly honest quiz about London fashion week which you can read in full on The Cut. Most fashion editors wouldn’t dare to diss the great and powerful Tom Ford but not Yaeger and that’s why we love her. Also? Nice burn.
