TRENDS: Streamlined and structured with shift dresses, hooded sweater dresses, wool tunics and a sparkling dress with the year 61—the year of the Ford’s birth—and molly crossed out under it. A nod to Jay Z no doubt. “I knocked off the knock off—in sequins, Ford said of the counterfeit jersey the rapper wore on tour.
