Two years ago, the tuxedo started going through a metamorphosis. Solid black was sooo over whereas florals and vibrant colors were becoming the new black in men’s evening wear. Guess who they were inspired by? Moi! For Spring 2014, Tom Ford continues serving up untraditional, elegant formal attire such as this lovely floral printed tux (above). Below is my blog post from August 19, 2011 that references this chic, new look that also, when you scroll down will see that I started this whole trend eons ago…at my Bar Mitzvah.
This is simply unfair. Two of the world’s most acclaimed style stalwarts, Vogue’s Hamish Bowles and Karl Lagerfeld (from Everywhere) literally stole my look. At the recent nuptials of Kate Moss, Hamish sported this floral tux number, and at the Costume Institute Gala, Karl did as well. In 1969, I wore it first, maybe not best, granted, but first just the same at my Bar Mitzvah in Fort Lee, New Jersey. In homage to the segment, Bitch Stole My Look on Fashion Police, that E! show with Joan Rivers and her band of fashionista elves, peruse these images and you tell me: Did these bitches steal my look?
