So, I’ve fallen in love with Tom Ford. To make matters worse — or perhaps better for me, he’s released a first look at his spring collection. I’m Ooh’ing and Aah’ing over everything! I don’t understand how men always seem to know what’s best for us?
The collection is as diverse and vibrant as the models and his audience. As a natural hair woman, I’m always honored and flattered when I see a woman like me in a major ad campaign/collection. In this day an age with the internet, demographics research, algorithms, Facebook and other complicated marketing research tools — these designers KNOW that women and men of color are buying their fashions and IMO have no excuse to not represent us. So kudos to Tom Ford setting the standard and the stage for producing some of the world’s most magnificent clothing and featuring some of the most beautiful women.
The sis wearing the afro is Puerto Rican supermodel & superbeauty Joan Smalls. Smalls has also been signed to Estée Lauder (which is HUGE) and launches in their global advertising campaign in May 2011. Would this make you want more Estee Lauder?
