Celebrities often try their hand at fashion design, thinking that it’s an easy venture (it’s not, obviously). It’s always a kick when those in fashion return the favor, and even more so when they succeed.

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning, and creative savant Tom Ford was nominated twice for his film Nocturnal Animals—one in the Best Director category, and once for Best Screenplay (he adapted the Austin Wright novel, Tony and Susan).

But The Hollywood Reporter noted that there was some slight controversy this past weekend, in which Ford (or his team) sent bottles of his perfume to members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association—the people who vote for the Golden Globes. In Ford’s defense, it’s common for studios to send items to voters as reminders to consider their films. But the HFPA has strict rules about what voters can and cannot accept, and anything with a market value over $95 is strictly forbidden. Since Ford’s scents are on the pricier side, the members were told they were only allowed to keep one bottle, and that the other had to be returned. So it seems no matter who wins, the smell in the air on the night of the ceremony will be that of Tom Ford.

The Golden Globes will be air January 8th on NBC. A complete list of nominees can be found here.

Just received a love letter from Dolce and Gabbana's lawyer accusing me and my people that we would steal their employees....... 1. This is a free country and everybody can choose by themselves who they want to work for !! 2. If people are happy at their job they don't think about leaving !!! 3. I really love and respect the brand dolce and gabbana , it was an inspiration for me and many others to start my business and to work in fashion !!!! @stefanogabbana @dolcegabbana It's is sad to say but everybody loves you until you become competition !!!! Since more than 15 years I work 24/7 on realizing my dream and building my company .... I respect everybody and I never received any support from this industry until today !!! I want to take this moment to apologize to absolutely "NOBODY" !!!!
