We made it through about two lines of the WWD article on Tom Ford's CFDA video before embarking on a frantic search for a clip. And voila! Ford and the other menswear nominees let director Douglas Keeve film a spoof of the HBO series In Treatment complete with Gabriel Byrne. Ford sat in for Melissa George's character, who's desperately in love with Byrne, and fluctuates between answering questions regarding clothes and design and reading lines from the actual show. He takes direction better on set than in the studio but still had some quips: "I walked in and told them to change the lights. Can't I have a Diet Coke? Who drinks a martini in therapy?" But Keeve thought he was a joy, "Tom didn't write the book on prima donnas. This is fashion. And Tom's pain-in-the-ass-ness is quite generous." More screen time for Tom, please!

Tom Ford Flattered by Jay-Z's 'Tom Ford'
As you've probably heard, Jay-Z released his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail this week and it includes the much buzzed about new song "Tom Ford," in which the iconic designer's name is mentioned multiple times, including in the line “I don’t pop Molly, I rock Tom Ford” (as in Molly the drug). People have mixed opinions about the album and the song (we were not that impressed with the way Ford was folded into the song), but who really cares about anyone's opinion other than Tom Ford's?
