To end the year off on high note, Beyonce blew everyone away and surprised fans and critics by releasing her fifth studio album on iTunes at midnight on December 13. The superstar’s self-titled album impressively sold 991,000 copies in its first 10 days of release, without any promotion. At her album’s release party last week in NYC, she rocked a fractured mirror Tom Ford dress and matching thigh high boots from Ford’s Spring 2014 collection. A perfect choice for her first major appearance since the album’s release and subsequent huge success. It’s super sexy, glamorous and expensive – all qualities Beyonce seems to be drawn to and ones Ford often considers in his legendary designs. I loved this collection when I first saw it (read my thoughts here) because Tom was back on track. And I also figured that many of the designs were created specifically with superstars like Beyonce and Rihanna in mind. The fractured mirror dresses are pretty much made for brave and confident stars to rock on the red carpet (kudos to Julianne Moore for being the first to wear a similar dress from Ford’s spring collection at the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists event in November, image below). I’d love to know how much this head-to-toe Tom Ford outfit costs. I’m guessing somewhere in the 10K range. Because no one thrives on being fancy and expensive like Tom Ford.
