jrestoinroitfeldrxb.jpgHAVING a yummy fashion mummy sure can set you up for an impressive career. Tom Ford unveiled his new Black Orchid fragrance to a select group of editors in New York yesterday – and announced that Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, daughter of French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, will star in the ad campaign for it. “I’ve known her since she was a little girl, and it was amazing to see her grow up to become such a beautiful woman,” he said. According to The Daily, Ford wanted a personality rather than a model for the shoot and added that “Roitfeld is exactly what beauty is to me”. Having apparently created the world’s first black orchid with the help of a leading botanist for his new fragrance, Ford will officially launch it in November and is expected to follow it up with a men’s version and a complete 125-piece cosmetics line next year.
