Photographers Mert and Marcus shot this ad for Tom Ford's White Patchouli fragrance which will launch in September of this year. Tom states:
"I wanted to continue with that stylized, glossy image [which the designer started with his Black Orchid fragrance ads in 2006]," said Ford. "And not too many people are doing black-and-white ads right now, which was also a consideration."
The ad features the soulful singer Erykah Badu and she evokes a modern-day Mona Lisa. What are your thoughts on the photo?
