Tom Ford sold his Warhol self-portrait which fetched $32.6 million at auction. The picture, which was created in 1986 a year before the artist's death and sees him in purple posed against a black background in his signature wig, was expected to sell for around $15 million. Ford, who collects modern art, sold the piece to a telephone bidder at the auction, which was handled by Sotheby's Paris. - Vogue
