Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford

Tom Ford does sexy best, and here in his Neroli Portofino fragrance campaign is not different. Tom Ford isn’t one to shy away from scandalous advertising: his previous use of porn stars for models and incessant emphasis on sex comes to mind. Who wouldn’t want their very own drenched Max (or Mariana)?  Playful and sexy, I believe this campaign does justice.

Tom Ford Eyewear: Abbey Lee

When Abbey Lee went peroxide blonde during S/S 11 runways, I really thought nothing good could have come from it. She’s an adorable girl and her locks were already the perfect shade. Well, Tom Ford proves that this bombshell brings sophistication and infinite sex appeal to his eyewear campaign. The dramatic cat eyes and the exaggerated sunglasses emit class. There are only two things that could make this better: Nicholas Hoult and for that crystal necklace to be in my possession, please and thank you.

Vogue Paris: Pussy West

In Tom Ford’s issue of Vogue Paris, Crystal Renn, Abbey Lee, and Eniko Mihalik star as outlaws in Pussy West, a wild west wonderland referencing Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and probably Back to the Future’s DeLorean. What fantastical usage of Givenchy HC and Louis Vuitton Fall 2010. This is one group of outlaws I’d thoroughly running into trouble with.

**Outtake includes Tom Ford and Terry Richardson laying one on each other. Awkward or oddly sexy? I’ll go with awkward.

Vogue Paris: Daphne Groeneveld & Tom Ford

Look what we came across. So the girl gets her cover after all with Tom Ford at that. I’m not sure how I feel about this 15-year-old girl yet. She certainly has risen quite quickly being casted in Givenchy Haute Couture and not to mention the Miu Miu campaign and endless runways for Spring, yet I still can’t help but feel she’s slightly undeveloped, like she needs to be put back in her mother’s uterus. I don’t know. I’ll leave feedback once the HQ cover has leaked or released, not to mention what editorial Vogue Paris has in store for us. I’m still not fully warmed up to Wixson, so this creature may take awhile.

Vogue December: Angelina Jolie

Another cover another day, and of course Mario Testino is the photographer. I guess it has been a while since Angelina Jolie has graced Vogue’s cover, so I’ll give her a break. I suppose I can wait one more month for a model to cover, but I am sure I will have to wait a lot longer for American Vogue does me justice or just gives me Gisele. Oh well, such is life.

Back to Angie. There’s something distinctly 90s about this cover, but the editorial is loads better. What really catches my eye is not only do I sort of like it, I’m curious to see what she’s actually wearing. I do not recognize it at all. There’s a headline on there about Tom Ford, so it makes me wonder if mommy is wearing that secretive comeback we have all been dying to see. I do not know the chances for that, because if I recall he said it won’t be until after the start of the new year we would be welcomed with the glorious images, but one can dream, right?
