Tom Ford makes his triumphant return to womenswear!

Tom Ford doesn't do anything by halves. After conquering the world of cinema with his film 'A Single Man' and 6 years away from the Gucci helm, Tom Ford has finally made his long-awaited return to womenswear, this time for his eponymous label.

Held in an extremely intimate presentation in New York, unlike every other fashion show there was a strict no photography policy bar Tom Ford-approved king of controversial raunchy photography Terry Richardson who captured the event. Also unlike every other fashion show was the guestlist. Other designers can only dream of having the likes of Beyonce, Julianne Moore, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Lou Doillon and Daphne Guinness at their show - let alone walking in it. That's right, Tom Ford used his stellar star power to invite a bevy of A-list fashion friends and supermodels to showcase his designs.

Although it was all very hush-hush, video of the event has finally been released, enjoy!

The list of women who walked this show is ridiculous, it reads like a who's who of supermodels: Anja Rubik, Freja Beha Erichsen, Natalia Vodianova, Daria Werbowy, Liya Kebede, Stella Tennant, Amber Valletta, Chanel Iman, Karlie Kloss, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Joan Smalls, Lauren Hutton and Karen Elson who also provided the soundtrack.

Tom Ford's vision of designing for the sexy, glamourous, grown-up women we all wish we were has set the bar extremely high for next season and the fashion world is waiting with bated breath.

More soon.
