It is with great sadness that Tom Ford announces the death of his beloved husband of 35 years, Richard Buckley. Richard passed away peacefully at their home in Los Angeles on Sunday night with Tom and their son Jack by his side. He died of natural causes after a prolonged illness.
Penelope Cruz’s name is synonymous with Chanel, so when it came to choosing a gown to wear on the first night of the 78th Venice Film Festival , there was only ever one maison in the running. The actor, who attended her first Chanel runway show in 1999, selected her favourite dress from the house’s autumn/winter 2021 collection for the red-carpet premiere of her film Parallel Mothers, directed by another of her long-time collaborators, the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar (“I consider him a genius,” she says). It took some 300 hours to create the dress, fashioned from black mikado with an ecru silk tulle petticoat, embellished with petal flounces.
I fell in love with that dress when I saw it on the catwalk,” says Cruz. “I love the entire haute couture collection, it was brilliant, but this one was my favourite look. This is a very important movie for me, so I needed a special dress for that,” added the star, who said she was “honoured” to give the gown its red-carpet debut.
Over the course of her longstanding relationship with Chanel, Cruz has developed an appreciation for the skilled work of les petites mains: “I’ve been in the ateliers many times over the years, visiting all the women creating the dresses, and many times I’ve seen them the day before the show,” she says. “They never leave the dress unless it’s 100 per cent perfect.”
When you have Beyonce and Jay-Z starring in a campaign that will hopefully usher in a new era of your brand, you break out the big guns. For Tiffany & Co., that meant adorning Beyoncé in the 128.54 carat Tiffany Diamond previously only worn by three other people (one of them being Audrey Hepburn), along with a host of other luxury jewels.
Of course, the priceless Fancy Yellow diamond on a long chain adorned with over 100 carats of diamonds itself looks right at home around Beyoncé’s neck as she posed for Tiffany’s new About Love campaign, shot by Mason Poole and styled by June Ambrose and Marni Senofonte, and the accompanying video, shot by Black Is King director Emmanuel Adjei. Her hair, styled by Jawara Wauchope and Nakia Rachon, is piled on top of her head in a glamorously unkempt updo and her makeup is subtle save for a dramatic cat eye (perhaps another nod to Ms. Hepburn’s Holly Golightly). The priceless necklace matches her 22-carat cushion-cut yellow diamond ring, two of many diamond-heavy pieces she wears throughout the campaign.
Jay-Z, in a neat black tux that complements Beyoncé’s curve-skimming, black cutout-dress, has his own fair share of jewels. A Bird on a Rock brooch by Jean Schlumberger, one of the most renowned jewelers of the 20th century who was once vice president of Tiffany & Co, was refashioned into a one-of-a-kind pair of cufflinks for the rapper. He also wears a striking Apollo brooch in platinum, yellow gold, and diamonds, as well as a slew of other Tiffany pieces including one of their new engagement rings for men.
