Erykah Badu for Tom Ford

Check out Erykah Badu in her all of her Diana Ross-esque glory in her new Tom Ford Campaign, shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, who also brought us those steamy new Emporio Armani ads featuring David Beckham . The fragrance, White Patchouli will be in stores this September, however this image is timeless. In talking about the fragrance, Ford says

For this project, I wanted to reinvent patchouli,(…) I loved the idea of mixing patchouli with white florals. We used patchouli orpur, which takes out some of the darker, smoky notes of patchouli. We mixed that with peony, bergamot, and jasmine. Additional notes include rose, coriander, and ambrette seed.”
Sounds like something Ms. Badu would naturally wear, and the creative is MUCH better than that Tom Ford for Men mess he gave us last fall. We’re looking forward to the rest of the campaign, since you know Tom has something else up his well-cuffed sleeve.
