(Getty Images) Tom Ford
doesn't need money. He has successful sunglass, perfume and cosmetics lines and he has received rave reviews for his men's and women's collections. Yet, rumor has it, Tom is on the hunt for a financial investor. Styleite
speculates it's because Tom wants to take fashion by storm, not in an Alexander Wang way—bigger. Think Gucci, Versace or Louis Vuitton. The only reason for him to need to seek outside financing would be if his plans were not just success, but world domination. The Imagist
writes that Tom has said he'd want his brand to be regarded in the same way as Chanel and Hermès.
