Code red! (Or, um, a more fashionable crimson?) Tom Ford has issued a verbal smackdown to all of France: The man who brought us NC-17-rated perfume advertising says that London, not Paris, is where the hot fashion is coming from these days.

The ghost of Coco Chanel is weeping, you guys. This is serious.
