There's no doubt about it -- Tom Ford is the toast of the fashion town. The designer-in-demand edited the holiday issue of French Vogue, told Harper's Bazaar about his porn watching habits, sent photos to Harper's Bazaar UK of his super-secret runway show and had models show off the duds in Vogue.
And now, Ford's chatted with W magazine about the lovely ladies who first wore his womenswear looks last fall. Check out what he had to say and several of the ensembles as donned by bombshell Lara Stone.

Tom Ford’s shredded organza shrug, silk crepe dress, satin corset, and shoes, designed for Rachel Feinstein. Says Ford: “Every time I see Rachel, I am dazzled by her smile, and I think about color. Rachel is all about color.”
Tom Ford’s embroidered silk dress with fringe, designed for Karen Elson. “Karen is such an exotic beauty, I always love dressing her in a color that plays off her skin tone and hair color,” says Ford. “The cobalt blue of the dress seemed exactly right.”
Tom Ford’s double-silk georgette kimono catsuit, designed for Lou Doillon. “Lou is young and has an amazing body,” says Ford. “She was the perfect person to wear a catsuit—le smoking.”
Tom Ford’s sequined and embroidered silk dress with netting, designed for Daphne Guinness. “Daphne is about structure, So the most important thing is that her dress is corseted and shows off her incredible figure,” says Ford. “She is also not a shrinking violet and can pull off fashion looks that many would be afraid of. I wanted her to have one of the most dramatic looks in the show.”
