On My Christmas 2011 Wish List: First Look At Tom Ford’s Make Up Line Fronted By Supermodel Lara Stone, Coming This September!!

June 14, 2011

Tom FordTom Ford unveiled his new high-colour cosmetics range last week, along with an advertising campaign in which he co-stars with supermodel Lara Stone

Mr Ford, who created the range with top British make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury, also developed a skincare line, which includes a serum, primer and cleanser. He revealed that a beauty faux fas in his teens led to a life-long interest in cosmetics.

‘I’ve cared about cosmetics and makeup since I was a kid,’ he told the publication. ‘When I was 14, I had to be taken to the emergency room because the cucumber slices I had put on my eyes – to camouflage the bags – had made them swell shut. I could eat cucumbers, but my eyes were clearly allergic to them.’

The designer, who famously transformed the fortunes of Gucci in the Nineties before setting up his own label, now has an empire that includes menswear, sunglasses and fragrance, as well as a newly-launched womenswear collection.

He has also turned his talents to film and his directorial debut, starring Colin Firth, was nominated for an Academy Award.

Fans of his work will also be thrilled to learn of a fly-on-the-wall documentary, which will premiere on June 24 on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
