At a time when runway shows are streamed live, designer Tom Ford put an embargo on images of his spring 2011 women’s collection. In an age when paparazzi and hangers-on mob fashion events, Mr. Ford invited a single photographer (Terry Richardson) and just 100 guests. The clothes were shown not on anonymous models but on Ford’s muses: Julianne Moore, Rita Wilson, Lauren Hutton, Daphne Guinness, Beyoncé. The creations will appear in stores March 1, just as other spring lines are pushed to the sales rack. Each piece, from the hand-painted silk fringe evening column to the silk leopard-print suit to the metal dégradé jacket, is as mesmerizing as Karen Elson’s “Pretty Babies,” the song that served as the show’s soundtrack. But don’t take our word for it. It’s right there on video on, and it’s all we want to see, listen to and wear this spring.
