Tom Ford tapped Lais Ribeiro to front the campaign for his Sahara Noir fragrance, and I’m so glad he did. Something about her languid pose and the way she looks in that sultry makeup just feels right.
“WOW. EPIC campaign, Lais is superb!” miguelalmeida exclaimed.
“Lais is apparently perfect for Tom Ford, gorgeous,” Maximilian S posted.
As great as this ad is, there were some detractors in the forums.
“Lais is so beautiful but she really looks sleepy,” Vladita commented. Those are just your classic “bedroom eyes,” no?
Jacque Marcel wrote, “Up the nose shots are never flattering,” but I think when you’re Lais, any type of shot is flattering.
I can probably find a rebuttal for every argument against this ad. Tom Ford has done plenty of things wrong lately (see his Fall 2013 collection), but this ad campaign isn’t one of them.
