Tom Ford  unveiled his new Fall/Winter 2015 campaign and it’s filled with fabulousity. The ultra-chic western-inspired campaign features new up and coming models Ondria Hardin and Lucky Blue Smith.

Hardin’s lips are styled in Ford’s limited-edition line of lipsticks. The color of choice: Rory, the metallic shimmering gold lipstick. Hardin’s flowing blonde tresses are pulled back in a sleek braided bun.

Dubbed the male model of the moment, Smith, who is only 16-years-old, is six-foot-two and is known for his signature blue eyes and beach blonde hair. As a result of his swoon-worthy looks, Smith has 1.2 million followers and counting.

In an interview with Teen Vogue, Smith discussed the importance of social media followers in the fashion industry. He said, “At a lot of castings they ask you to put your Instagram account down and how many followers you have. “I think models’ social followings are starting to matter more—a lot more than I think they should.”

Shot by Mario Sorrenti, the campaign is set in a movielike dessert rock formation and features both Hardin and Smith styled in a number of chic ensembles from Tom Ford’s Fall 2015 collection that range from patchwork denim, suede, fur, fringe and leather.

Tom Ford, who seems to be having an exceptional year, was named Menswear Designer of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). The awards took place at the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center.

In a recent interview, the uber-talented designer shared how fatherhood has changed him. Ford told Evening Standard magazine that his two-year-old son Jack has helped him learn how to relax.

Ford is slated to start pre-production on his second film Nocturnal Animals, which is a thriller starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. Ford penned the script, which is an adaption of the 1993 Austin Wright book Tony And Susan. According to Deadline, the deal between Focus Featured and Ford is worth $20 million. A number of film companies were highly impressed when Ford presented the idea for the film at the Cannes Film Festival. However, Focus Featured films were the ones who nabbed the deal.
