Tom Ford has been a major headliner in pop culture thanks to Jay Z's popular song, "Tom Ford." It comes as no surprise that the style veterans and fashion enthusiasts of London Fashion Week have marked Ford's Autumn/Winter 14 Collection as a pinnacle must-see event during this celebration of design. The Vancouver Observer recently attended the ever exclusive Tom Ford Show held at Lindley Hall in London.

Tom Ford's Autumn/Winter 14 Collection was a definite salute to his American roots. Models were clad in sequined football jerseys - the perfect homage to the Americana spirit - and leather boots. The football jerseys were Ford's playful tribute to the jersey Jay Z wears when he performs "Tom Ford."  

Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue was classically poised and impeccably immaculate in her trademark sunglasses in the front row along with Richard Buckley, Ford's partner. Other celebrities such as couple Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse were in attendance.

Model superstars Liberty Ross and Karen Elson walked during the show. British model and Karl Lagerfeld muse, Stella Tennant, closed the show. The opening dress was an unusual introduction to the show that evoked positive reactions from the majority of the audience. The black, velvet, long-sleeve turtleneck dress set the tone for the remainder of the show, which was heavily dominated by black pieces. A few girly chic pieces with fur, sequins, and bold red leather were also marinated into the runway.

Ford's A/W14 collection exuded subtle sex appeal through the use of classic modest luxury and light, conservative cuts.
