Tom Ford - Forever Love Vogue Paris December 2010 Photography
Tom Ford : “I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating. Society today condems this, me, I celebrate it. For this session of fine jewellery, I imagined a man and a woman who had been together for a long time, faithful to each other and always incandescent with desire.”
TOM FORD is a leading fashion designer best known for his designs in luxury clothing, accessories, fragrance and cosmetics.

Since the 1970s, we have become accustomed to seeing pictures of nudes in every conceivable context. Even soft porn tableaux in fashion magazines and erotic films on TV no longer have the power to shock – provided that the models are young and good-looking. But we are evidently still uncomfortable with the idea that elderly people can have active love lives and enjoy sex. We would rather not be confronted by such images.
