How should breasts get the support they deserve in 2020? The answer is simple: Tom Ford's shiny metal boobs.
The lacquered bustier – retail value: $ 15,000 – is slated to appear on the designer's (literally) underground Spring 2020 display in September, surrounding the wearer's chest to form a protective layer. But unlike more traditional, less fashion-y armor, it turns into a hot pink color and looks more like molded plastic than iron or steel.
Such a garment looks just right for "Wonder Woman" costume, but fashion editors and celebrity stylists think otherwise. Within a week, the next bra landed on two major February magazines and a well-received appearance on the red carpet, which is best for any runway item. Let's take it down, shall we?
The Tom Ford boob plate (breastplate? Bustier?) Made its first big 2020 appearance on the February cover of Harper's Bazaar, played by Gwyneth Paltrow. And we have to say: Metallic fuchsia is a beautiful addition to her blue eyes.
Then, fellow Hearst title Elle retained the February cover in the Tom Ford family, with the shiny metal bra in a different color on Zoë Kravitz.
Eventually, Zendaya received the Critic's Choice Award in the pink fighter piece in 2020, pairing it with the floor-length magenta skirt. Her outfit was easily the highlight of the evening, taking into account the internet's ongoing chatter across the breastplate.
Well, there you have it, people: if it's not clear to you yet, the sartorial powers that are very excited about boob plates – especially those of the Tom Ford variety. It's a daring look and requires equal amounts of confidence and dedication, but if you're a type to look for top editors and Hollywood's best inspiration, then maybe it's a matter of time before we all have shiny shapes of our breasts.
