There's naked, and then there's Tom Ford naked. At least that's what we gathered from our first look at Cara Delevingne's advertisement for the brand's Black Orchid perfume. Cara lies sprawled in what appears to be two feet of water, completely naked. No suggestive draping or "oops, how did that fall?!" bra straps. Just Cara in the buff, looking like a modern-day Birth of Venus, as envisioned by Tom Ford.
And, we've gotta say, damn, girl.
For once, Cara's bold brows aren't the only thing we're staring at — although her makeup look is pretty clutch. Strong cheekbones and a sexy smoky eye add to the sultry allure of the ad. But, let's be honest: Tom Ford knew what he was doing when he asked Cara to get greased up and splash around in some water. And, if sex truly does sell, Black Orchid is about to go flying off the shelves.
Well played, folks. Now, we'd love to see what Tom could do with Girl with a Pearl Earring and the Mona Lisa...
