HuffPost's Game Changers series celebrates 100 innovators, visionaries, and leaders in 12 categories who, whether working in the spotlight or under the radar, are changing how we look at the world and the way we live in it. We salute them for their willingness to look at things and take the risk of saying, "I think I have a better way."

Tom Ford

Changed the game by ... mastering multiple mediums with style and flair. Let's say you are the oracle of chic, a Vanity Fair cover boy, the top designer in the world, fresh off reviving Gucci from the dead and launching your own label. You look as fabulous as your bottom line, and you’ve won a nomination for menswear designer of the year (again) without blinking an eye. What do you do next? Do you bask? Or do you direct a beautifully shot movie called "The Single Man" that garners an Oscar nod for its lead actor, and which the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation names the best wide-release movie of the year? If you're Tom Ford, the answer is obvious.

Update: Then, after all that, Tom Ford went and changed the game in fashion again. During the just-completed New York Fashion Week, Ford bucked tradition by holding a super-exclusive presentation of his Spring 2011 collection using models you might have heard of -- Beyoncé, Julianne Moore, and Lauren Hutton. He allowed only one photographer (Terry Richardson) in, and the resulting photos won't be released to the public until December--right around the time the clothes will actually be available for purchase. How novel!

He said it: “I want fashion to be fun again, like it was in the ’60s,” he told The New York Times after his Spring 2011 presentation. “You couldn’t wait to get the clothes and put them on, and I think we’ve lost that.”
