Tom Ford For Men Skincare And Grooming – Where’s Patrick Bateman When You Need Him?

Yes. It’s widely known how much I love Tom Ford. His clothing for men and women is flawless, as is his beauty line for women. Oh, and his sunglasses? Yeah, I admit to swooning over the pair I own.

But can we sit down and talk about Tom’s campaign for his new skincare and “grooming” line for men? It WREAKS of American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman. 

“In the morning if my face is a little puffy, I’ll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now.

After I remove the ice pack, I use a Deep Pore Cleanser Lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub.

(Out of the shower)

Then I apply an herb mint facial mask which I leave on for ten minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an aftershave lotion with little or alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out, and makes you look older.

Then moisturiser, then an anti-ageing eye balm, followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.”

Okay, then.  So Mr. Ford’s exclusive collection of men’s fancy skincare is available only at Neiman Marcus.  I have a feeling my SilverFox husband wouldn’t be all that thrilled with a $25 lip balm, let alone a $150 Skin Revitalizing Concentrate.

Silly Tom Ford! Doesn’t he realize that WOMEN are the ones society expects to stay young and beautiful forever? WE spend the money on this stuff–and our husbands simply “borrow” it from time to time.  

Thoughts?

Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2014 – London Fashion Week

Tom Ford.
Tom Ford.

 

New York’s fashion week was decidedly boring, and London isn’t fairing much better, but there was the exception of Tom Ford. The designer showcased some of his trademark sexiness with his models sporting textured leather and disco ball dresses that were somehow more flashier than Balmain. This collection seemed more wearable and confident than his last, and I’m sure a number of celebs are already trying to get their hands on some of these for the red carpet soon. Here are some of the best looks!

Tom Ford Talks New Collection, Movie and Baby With Andre Leon Talley

Smuggy McPretentious Tom Ford

 

Lord knows I love designer, film-maker and all around Fancy Pants,  Tom Ford.  But lest we forget, dude’s from Austin, Texas.  One wouldn’t, however, make that assumption by listening to Mr. Ford speak with Vogue Contributing Editor, André Leon Talley about changing a “diuhh-puhh” or two when his baby son Jack does something utterly gauche into it after his meal. (I’m quite sure Master Jack will be trained in the art of non-elimination within a year or so.)

Please do take a moment out of your busy day to listen to the pretentious faux-Euro accents of these two Southern American fashion icons.  

One more thing?

Oh, Andre`.

 

André Leon Talley was born and raised in North Carolina. I’m pretty sure (and Brittani – The Girl You Want can verify this for me), that ALT’s accent isn’t quite an authentic NC dialect.  

Honestly. THESE two.
