Tom Brady Wears A Dog Collar, Tom Ford Says Controversial Things In V

Tom Brady Wears A Dog Collar, Tom Ford Says Controversial Things In V

Tom Brady plays football but the fashion industry has decided he’s just too beautiful for all that pummeling and grunting, so they’ve bestowed upon him a nebulous career in being handsome. Thus, here is Tom Brady wearing a Givenchy suit on the cover of V, photographed by Mario Testino, styled by Carine Roitfeld and interviewed by Tom Ford himself (the full-court press). The New England Patriots’ quarterback and husband to Gisele Bundchen probably said some pleasant things in that interview, but it’s Ford who says all the interesting stuff. More »

Poll: Was Venus Williams’ Wimbeldon Playsuit Really That Bad?

Poll: Was Venus Williams' Wimbeldon Playsuit Really That Bad?

No Venus! blasts The Daily Mail, calling Venus Williams’ Wimbeldon look “ghastly” and a “fashion disaster” all in one exceptionally wordy headline. Not that the Mail‘s writers are ever arbiters of reasonableness (or good taste), but apparently Venus is taking a lot of criticism for her outfit on the court. Now, it may not move terrifically (see left) and it’s not the most flattering romper I’ve ever seen but frankly: the woman is a professional athlete.
