When Tom Ford invaded LA for his fall 2015 runway show, he was apparently on a mansion-scouting mission, too. The London designer-turned-director has just snapped up Cali interiors superstar Kelly Wearstler and hotelier hubby Brad Korzen's Beverly Hills estate for a reported $53 million, our sister site Curbed LA reports.
Built in 1926, 3.2-acre residence houses seven bedrooms, a two-bedroom guesthouse, a swimming pool, and a tennis court — all of which we're assuming feature Wearstler's signature maximalist style. The massive manse also happens to boast a deep Hollywood history, notes the real estate pub — fitting for Ford, whose foray into film also includes this year's horror flick Noctural Animals. (Bond Lifestyle also points out that Ford dressed the last three 007s; James Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli is among the home's previous owners.)
Now that Ford is supposedly going bicontinental, we're wondering if he — like City of Angels-obsessed Hedi Slimane — plans on staging more fashion shows (or leading more movie sets?) in his new West Coast hometown.
