My Beauty Look: Lavender Extrême

For my shoot with TOM FORD in Gordes, I did my make-up with those beautiful products from the LAVENDER EXTRÊME collection that the team had placed in my hotel room. As I am having green eyes, everything purple works very well for me because it makes my eye color pop.

The lipstick is a deeper, lavender purple with pink undertones and iridescent violet pearl throughout. I love it as the color makes your teeth seem a lot whiter. It doesn’t look like in the advertising when you apply it, as it has more of a glossy, metallic finish with a few sparkles. You can easily build up the coverage but it will never be fully opaque like in the ad picture. It wears well for many hours and is very hydrating at the same time.

The SHADOW EXTRÊME shades are my favorites, formulated with long-wearing polymers and also water-resistant, so they’ll glide on smoothly using your fingertips or a brush without settling between creases. I love this extra sparkle for my eyes.

My Look: Lavender Extrême

In July, I travelled with TOM FORD to Gordes in France for the launch of the brand’s newest unisex fragrance, LAVENDER EXTRÊME. An extremely beautiful scent that I fell in love with from the first encounter, different from everything I had smelled before. The iconic lilac flower is upended, translated from its storied origin in Provence and into a fresh subversion of itself. Different types of lavender are mixed together, developing diverse facets, from an adrenaline-pumping freshness to an amber-like facets and layered with Italian bergamot and citrus. For the base note, the relaxing scent of lavender gets a shot of electricity with a spicy, warm oriental tonka, and benzoin drydown. Extremely sexy, seductive and long-lasting – exactly what TOM FORD stands for.

For the social media campaign, I was honored to be part of this amazing shoot in the lavender fields close to Gordes, wearing this stunning outfit by TOM FORD.

My look: Light jersey mock neck cape dress, leather pumps with padlocks, vintage purple «punk»-style fur bagsilk-chiffon headscarf, and Linda sunglasses, all by Tom Ford leather and suede waist belt by Balmain.

Housed in an all-silver, sleek bottle, LAVENDER EXTRÊME is the epitome of understated glamour. In Switzerland available now at Jelmoli, Globus Zurich and Globus Geneva for CHF 340.00 (50 ml).
