In all honesty, this week should have a holiday named after hip hop artist Drake, because who of us did not watch hours upon hours (at work and at home LOL) of #DrakeAlwaysOnBeat remixed videos? Drake released the dancing, multi-colored set music video for his single Hotline Bling that took off like a wildfire on social media within minutes. Now Drake is ending the week in the news again but this time it isn’t music related.
Drake along with actor Jake Gyllenhaal are apart of Tom Ford’s second installment of lip colors that fall within his Lips & Boys collection. This line of lip shades in the end will encompass 50 lip tints all related to men that are connected to Tom Ford in some way, shape or form. Therefore, what is the degree of separation between designer Tom Ford and Drake?
You may recall that Drake’s song Tuscan Leather aptly named after Tom Ford’s popular fragrance where he specifically names Tom Ford. Can’t quite remember the single? Check out this performance to get a quick shot of memory lane.
Got it now? We thought you would and besides the single Drake also wore accessories from the Tom Ford collection for a GQ magazine spread back in 2012. So then, I guess you could say that Tom and Drake both respect each other’s artistry.
Drakes lip shade for the Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection will be a gorgeous deep Burgundy tint. As deep as his lyrics go at times we think this is the perfect shade to fit mister Champagnepapi! The new colors will retail for $52 and will be available come Black Friday.
