There are things in this world that you can count on. A good Kanye rant, Rihanna getting high and Tom Ford being Tom Ford. We can always count on him for a serious glamour injection, even in the midst of a polar vortex.

The shots for his upcoming Spring 2014 advertising campaign have just been released and as per usual, Ford strikes gold. At first glance, the shoot is a little reminiscent of late night dance party à la Chippendale’s, but once you get past that it’s smooth sailing. In line with his signature opulent throwbacks, the collection features textured body-con, leather, tailored power suits and disco ball shimmering minis. On the runway in London, models were practically dripping in sex and their dresses, done in slashed leather and strips of silk, are cheeky but strategically done. Classy never trashy.

There really is no better way to break up a busy schedule of shopping and London sightseeing than with a few tea sandwiches and some jasmine pearls. Here are some of our favourite picks.

30 Days, 30 Workouts: Our anti-resolution guide to keeping you motivated

Comments

It’s #NewYearNewMe time. Practically everyone has resolutions—even the supermodels (Kate Upton wants to start a journal; Cindy Crawford wants to take more beach walks). While writing down the day’s highs and lows and strolling seaside sound pleasant, the tough-love kind of goals can be downright difficult to keep (Give up chocolate? Hells no!) But we hear you: You want to be toned so you can rock spring’s crop-top trend, and we will make sure you can do so.

“Resolutions, as far as I’m concerned, fail,” says Eva Redpath, founder of Body Conditioning by Dancers and Nike Master Trainer. “We’re super committed to them, we’re hot and heavy with them, and we’re doing them for a short amount of committed time. In order to achieve what you want, you should make a lifestyle change, and that takes time.” And if your NYR list is a page long, she suggests you lighten up. “Choose one particular thing you want to work on. I wouldn’t recommend you try to quit smoking, lose weight, drink more water, go to the gym five times a week—all of that is extremely overwhelming and in my experience doesn’t work.” Once you’ve chosen a specific goal, “Set little miniature goals, so it’s like a ladder. Take one step at a time,” says Redpath. For instance, in the first week, try one new workout class and in the second week, try two.
