Julianne Moore has credited designer Tom Ford with teaching her valuable lessons about fashion.
The actress was a muse of the American designer and his leading lady in his directorial debut, A Single Man, back in 2009.
In an interview with supermodel Helena Christensen to mark InStyle magazine’s 25th anniversary, Julianne shared the fashion knowledge that her close friend imparted on her.
“Tom, for all of his glamour and everything, is never mysterious about fashion. He’s not precious about it. He’s like, ‘Oh, that armhole needs to be tighter; the skirt needs to be this length; that colour looks good on you.’ He’s very specific about it, so I always think it’s nice to demystify fashion,” she explained.
“Get a good tailor and make sure it fits. Do you feel good in it? Do you feel like it’s appropriate for the occasion? And the best thing that’s happened to me regarding fashion is the iPhone, because taking a picture of your outfit before you leave is one of the best things you can do.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the Oscar-winning actress shared that she was obsessed with jumpsuits and Birkenstock sandals.
“I have a dressy one, a blue linen one, a green zip-up Rachel Comey one, and another shiny Rachel Comey number. I wear them a lot, which is why you think I have more,” she told Helena about her jumpsuit collection.
However, she admitted she couldn’t even remember how many pairs of the comfortable sandals she had in her closet.
“I’ve stopped buying them because I have too many, and I want to make sure I wear them until they die. My favourites right now are the Rick Owens. Then I also have an all-green pair that’s a special edition I got in Berlin. They’re excellent,” the 58-year-old gushed.
