One of the standout looks from Tom Ford's fall 2019 collection was deep, red and monochromatic: a red velvet blazer, maroon bodysuit, shiny silk cuffed suit pants, and velvet peep-toe platforms.


Sure, part of the reason the look stood out was because it was modeled by Gigi Hadid, arguable one of the most famous models working today.

But it was also because the look felt like an obvious nod to one of Ford's most iconic look from his influential years at Gucci: the red velvet suit from his 1996 fall collection.


It was memorably worn by Gwyneth Paltrow at the MTV Video Music Awards and pinned to countless mood boards for years to come.


There has been a resurgence of '90s trends in fashion lately. With just one runway look, Ford reminded everyone that he's where it all started.
