>> Tom Ford's Warhol Painting Goes for Record Amount; Liya Kebede Wins Award at Cannes — Just yesterday, Sotheby's sold Andy Warhol's "Self Portrait" — which was estimated to go for $15 million — for a record $32.6 million; the seller was Tom Ford. Will Ford, who was reported at the end of last year to be looking for at least $50 million to finance his womenswear collection, use the new cash to help pad the launch? Or to fund an upcoming film? After all, he financed A Single Man himself. And speaking of visual arts, Liya Kebede, currently in Cannes to promote her film Desert Flower, was awarded this year's Chopard Trophy for Female Revelation (which has gone in previous years to Marion Cotillard, Diane Kruger, and Ludivine Sagnier) for her breakthrough performance.
