ohhh ben you are going to loooooooove this :evil:

FORD'S FRENCH FEELING

HAVING dismissed the French as "the worst dressed people in the world", Tom Ford is determined to continue slating them. "French people refuse all that is new as a matter of principle," the ex-Gucci creative director, who these days spreads his life between homes in Texas, LA and London, tells this morning's Daily Telegraph. "They are desperately clinging to their traditions, like old curtains. The hierarchical system, the bureaucracy. How do the French think they can keep their place in the world by only working a 35-hour week? It's a total aberration. America is a society founded on merit and - as opposed to France - we really appreciate successful people." He was clearly feeling more friendly on a trip to the Oxford University Union this week, however where he was invited to join an impressive line up of speakers including weapons researcher Hans Blix and former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar. Asked where he would like to be five years from now, Ford was less reticent than usual. "I hope I will have finished at least one movie," he said, admitting that until now he has been sent all kinds of scripts including "porn - everything about sex and the fashion business". "But that doesn't mean fashion is over," he went on. "I would be living half in London designing things and making movies in Hollywood." The union's president, Ruzwana Bashire, told the International Herald Tribune that she was pleased with the standard of questions put to Ford. Even those, it seems, about his own appearance. Asked why he always wore his shirts wide open at the neck, he made not a moment's hesitation. "The chest is like legs for women," he said. "It's the last thing to go."

taken from the fashion spot. this was back in 2004 but still...i thought you should know :rofl:
