I'm not going to defend the silhouette or the fit, because I don't like it either. Or the tie, which makes the Fiat heir look like a scrawny kid at Bumblefuck County High going to his first prom, with a shirt borrowed from a European exchange student. Or the shoes. (Why are so many men today too effete to wear patent opera pumps with their tuxedos?) But I think you're off on the color. I suspect that the color of that tux is really a nice, deep midnite blue, and only looks garishly blue because of the camera's flash. At least, I hope that's the case.
But why the commotion over Tom Ford? Honestly, I've never seen a picture of him where I thought he was iconically stylish. He's either showing way too much chest hair or doing something else to make himself look sketchy. However, shoes aside I don't see this shot as looking that bad by his standards. I'm not crazy about the pants and I like DB tuxes to be 6x2 rather than 6x4 (though I'd never buy a regular suit in 6x2) but if I saw someone dressed like that at a formal function I wouldn't think to study what was wrong with his get-up.
