Jay Z Gets "Knocked Off" by Tom Ford During London Fashion Week
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
For his London Fashion Week show on Feb. 18, Tom Ford found inspiration in an unlikely source: Jay Z, who literally sang the designer's praises in his hit song, "Tom Ford," rapping "I don't pop molly. I rock Tom Ford."
Jay Z, 44, wore a "Tom Ford 61" jersey shirt with the word "molly" crossed out during his Magna Carta Holy Grail tour. Ford took that design and gave it a sequined upgrade for the London catwalk. "I just took the knock off from online, and knocked it off," Ford told The Associated Press. The long-sleeved dress appeared in black and bronze versions.
However, while a version of Jay Z's tour shirt is sold online for $65, the designer's version is decidedly more luxe. "My knockoff will sell for $6,500," he told Style.com.
