Candice Swanepoel for Tom Ford.
Candice Swanepoel is so hot in this Autumn Winter 2011 campaign for Tom Ford. Recently, Candice has been getting herself out there, and it has paid off, as she has now just landed one of the most coveted modeling jobs in the industry, the star of Tom Ford’s fall campaign.
This South African beauty is shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for the promotional images. This collection of sexy shots are fiery, from the fashion to the make-up. The images appear almost like a continuation of Lara Stone’s stunning beauty campaign earlier in the year. These photographs are full of the same bold colors and high contrast glossy finish. Not uprising really, as both campaigns were shot by the same photographers. Every shot screams glamor and drama, which is the aesthetic created by the bold and beautiful designs.
My favorite person ever, Jon Kortajarena, takes on the menswear side of the campaign. He is clearly a favorite of Ford’s, not only been featured in many previous campaigns, but he also has a role in Tom Ford’s directional debut, A Single Man.
All the images are classic Tom Ford, and I really like the collection. The colors and lighting are awesome, and Jon Kortajarena looks insanely cool in a sophisticated Tom Ford creation. My favorite womenswear design featured is the sheer purple dress with lace detail.
Candice Swanepoel hit the big time after making it as a Victoria’s Secret model, but has made a seamless transition from Angel to high-fashion recently. She has walked for many of fashion’s biggest labels, including Dior and Givenchy. Being the face for Tom Ford surely certifies her place in the world of high fashion. Here she brings some Victoria’s Secret sex appeal to the promotional photographs.
