  1. I don't care what anyone says I LOVED what Tom Ford did at YSL. I liked his vision for Gucci too, but I love his vision of the YSL woman more. "Tom Ford mastered the ‘about to have sex’ look at Gucci and the mussed, smudged, post-sex look at Yves Saint Laurent.”

    And I love the Dior Homme pictures too.

    -ps. I am so humbled by your comment. Thank you. :)

  2. Thank you! I totally remember that black dior suit with the white shirt photo.

    & I LOVE the margiela/hermes ed!
