Dialogue between Tom Ford and André Leon Talley at the Met:
TF: "The whole thing about dressing to be comfortable makes me uncomfortable, he said. “Dressing is a form of manners and you should be proud of how you look and what you represent. You're inflicting yourself upon the world when you walk out the door. You're becoming part of an environment, you should take pride in that."
ALT: "Lee Radziwill told me that she and her sister (Jackie O) used to get their hair done up by (Mister) Kenneth before a plane ride,” he said. “They'd bring their best handbags and wear gloves. Do you like the way people look at airports today?”
TF: "No, of course not!"
Couldn't agree more.
