It looks like Thom Browne and Pope-admirer Chloë Sevigny aren't the only fashion-world touchstones referencing Catholic iconography. At Tom Ford's men's show in London — the one with those magic skinny-making jeans — he also presented a set of phallic silver-crucifix necklaces, according to The Telegraph. (Said writer David Nicholls, "I can’t help but wonder if in this instance he is — if you’ll excuse the expression — ever so slightly taking the piss.") Wearing these to Mass on Sunday: strongly discouraged.
