Bathtime Fun with Tom Ford; Christian Siriano Designs Sponges

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Ad CampaignMiss having a rubber duck to play with in the bath? So does Tom Ford, which is why he's thought up an alluring adult-only alternative for having some tub-time fun. The designer's suggestion? Get naked with your favorite, most good-looking companion, get all sudsy, and rinse it off with Ford's new fragrance: Neroli Portofino. The ad campaign for the new collection of bath and body products features models Mariana Braga and Max Motta getting each other really, really squeaky clean (although doesn't it seem like it's only a matter of time before they'll get dirty again?)  [, tFS Forums]

When it comes to washing up, most of us would rather wash ourselves and take a bubble bath than do the dishes. While Tom Ford played it safe by making good times even better, Christian Siriano took on a harder project and found a way to make a dreaded task more bearable. Even though I'll never think of dishwashing as a pleasant task, the designer's latest line of limited-edition sponges might make me feel a little less resentment towards my kitchen sink.
