Well, hello bronze. Things are certainly looking sun-kissed and smoldering over at Tom Ford Beauty this spring, and I, for one, am lurving it.
â€œI have always loved the look of tanned, glowing skin, whether it is achieved with bronzing powder or with a natural tan.â€

I’m surprised that Tom decided to release this as a spring collection, what with all the gold and bronze and the metallic finishes that seem more typical of summer to me than spring.
Not that I’m complaining. I live for summery colors, so I say bring on the bronze! Heck, they could have released this in winter, and I would have said, “That’s a little weird, but okay.” No complaints from this end of the peanut gallery.
Matter of fact, you know where colors like these really come into their own this time of year? On the French Riviera.
We should go (assuming I hit the next Mega Millions). We could hang out at a fancy five-star resort, and you better believe I’d be rocking my board shorts and muÊ»umuÊ»u while we’re there.
