There's no designer on the New York Fashion Week calendar — or, arguably, on the entire fashion month schedule — who brings out high-wattage celebrities in such remarkable droves as Tom Ford. It's hard to believe that it was more than two years ago that Ford opted out of the traditional show format to present his Fall 2015 collection in Los Angeles, just two days before the Oscars. His front rows have been just as star-studded ever since; the celebrities come to him.
After abandoning "see now, buy now," which he adopted last February, Ford returned to the NYFW calendar on Wednesday with a chic, appetite-suppressing pink bang. The celebrities were there, of course, and to precisely no one's surprise, they looked hot. Kim Kardashian West arrived solo, sans husband Kanye West, wearing a strapless latex gown, her Daenerys Targaryen platinum hair styled down to her waist. The models (those who didn't walk the show) dressed to the nines: Cindy Crawford in head-to-glitter; Doutzen Kroes in dramatic red bodycon; Pat Cleveland in a simple wrap dress; Helena Christensen in a sequined mini; Suki Waterhouse in black leather, her hair fanned out in Old Hollywood waves. Meanwhile, movie stars (Julianne Moore, Liev Schreiber) mingled with Instagram poets (Cleo Wade), pop stars (Ciara), athletes (Russell Westbrook) and miscellaneous Cool Teens™ and celebrity spawn (Cameron Dallas, Sistine Stallone, Lori Harvey, Julia Restoin Roitfeld) to round out the front row.
It's almost a shame Ford showed before anyone else, because now, no one's front row even stands a chance. Click through the gallery below to see the best-dressed celebrities from Ford's Spring 2018 show.
