Tom Bell had a hit with his ball gowns in the early Eighties, and now he’s causing a stir with his sculptures. Rifat Ozbek, Gabhan O’Keefe, Lucy Ferry, Geraldine Ogilvy and Stella Tennant were among those who stopped by the opening of Bell’s show at the Richard Salmon gallery in London the other day. London’s prestigious Tate gallery is also said to be interested.
Herb Ritts, meanwhile, is just back from South Africa where he photographed Nelson Mandela. Ritts said he brought Naomi Campbell along on the trip and the supermodel and the statesman hit it off beautifully.
