The stylish couple were the star guests at Tom Ford's London Fashion Week autumn/winter 2013 show
Last moth we told you that Justin Timberlake had teamed up with Tom Ford as part of his musical comeback, so it was no real surprise to see the singer and his actress wife Jessica Biel at the designer’s London Fashion Week show last night.
The couple joined the British fashion set and hit the show circuit as the star guests at the unveiling of Ford’s autumn/winter 2013 collection at the capital’s grand Lancaster House.
Looking as glossy as you’d expect from a Tom Ford show guest, Jessica wowed in a long-sleeved top with a plunging neckline and a shimmering black sequined skirt that fell just below the knee – both from the designer’s spring/summer 2013 collection. A pair of black and gold multi-strap heels, a zig-zag printed clutch and a ’60s-inspired beehive hairstyle completed her look. As for Justin, the singer looked sharp in a charcoal grey checked suit teamed with a blue and white shirt, dark tie and black patent shoes – also all by Tom Ford.
The two stars sat alongside the likes of Ford’s long-term partner Richard Buckley and fashion power player Carine Roitfeld on the front row at the show, and erupted into raptuous applause as the Texan designer took to the catwalk to take his bow.
Once the disco and tribal-esque collection had wrapped, they then moved onto the after-party to enjoy a celebratory glass of champagne or two with the designer and his friends to toast his successful return to the fashion stage after a series of low-key presentations in recent seasons.
In January, Justin announced that he had teamed up with Ford as part of his musical comeback for the launch of his new album, The 20/20 Experience – his first release in almost six years. The designer dressed the former boyband member in some of his smartest attire for a video for his latest single, which is fittingly called Suit & Tie and features guest vocals from Jay-Z, as well as the artwork to accompany the release.
The twosome have also been working closely together on a series of bespoke tailoring – think eveningwear, shoes and accessories – that will be the ‘focal point of The 20/20 Experience’. It’s understood that Ford has created made-to-measure menswear for the singer’s promotional appearances, live shows and future videos for the album, which is expected to be released later this year.
