Tom Ford New Ad Campaign Just As Provocative As The Old Ones

Tom Ford knows that controversy and intimacy pave the road to financial success. Regardless of what you’re trying to sell. He holds no more secrets in his advertorial recipe book: all the ingredients you need are skin, more skin, all the skin you have needs to be shown. Add some red lipstick, red nails, think black rimmed eyeglasses and you’re set for world ad – domination.

And although he keeps playing mysterious about his preferences (remember when he said he wasn’t gay? Ha! – yep, he said that some days ago), you can always count on Tom Ford’s scandalous ads. He’ll always deliver the same saucy content. Just a modest example below. (more here)

Everything is se)(ual to Tom Ford. He seems to live his life enveloped in so kind of pristine se)(ual aura.
So he says he is not gay? I can so see him saying that, and for some reason I could see him falling in love with some woman and being with her for years as well.
I do love his designs though. : )

He knows how to manipulate everything around image and public display. Somehow, though, I was sincerely moved to find out that he was tied to Richard Buckley for so long! Like you said, nothing would really surprise me coming from him (given that he likes to shock so much, the element of actual surprise is obsolete with anything Tom Ford).

Not only do I appreciate his designs, but every new clever marketing approach (from making his fashion shows private to repetitively using red manicure and red lipstick in a cliche representation of a strong willed, free spirited woman always attending, curling up to the man she’s next to in any of his ads).
