M E N  O F  S T Y L E - Tom Farrelly. Model, Sydney.

Sometimes when you meet someone for the first time, it’s like you’ve known them for years, that is actually what happened when we met Tom. We met through a mutual friend who suggested we meet Tom and feature him for Men of Style. We had heard about Tom, the busy model (Tom is signed to London Mgt Group), who just recently walked the runway for the  David Jones Spring Summer 14 Fashion Launch, who just got back from Miami on duty as an official  Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim ambassador and the guy who seems to be popping up in every magazine and website. Little did we know that this dude started his career in PR (making him somewhat of a model underdog). Tom has a really great sense of humour (we laughed our way through the whole shoot) and doesn’t take himself too seriously. On the flip-side Tom is a very creative and deep individual with a really humble attitude. After spending a day with him we came to realise that basically he is a super nice guy who is definitely a very interesting and complex character. We’re happy to now call him a mate! 

First off, some background on where you started, where you are and where you see yourself going.

I started off working in PR and talent management. Right now I’m modelling full time, which I’m really enjoying. Eventually I would like to end up working in television. 

How would you describe your look/style?

My day to day style is quite simple and paired back. 

What would you say are your biggest influencers in terms of your style, whether it be a person, a place, a movement etc?

The weather is probably my biggest influence when I get dressed in the morning. But in terms of an aesthetic, I have always admired the classic styling of early Calvin Klein.

What are you go-to clothing stores, favourite places to shop? 

Collector store and Nique on Crown Street and I can’t go past a good department store so David Jones FTW.

Brands that you love?

Dr Denim or Cheap Monday for jeans. 

Bassike or American Vintage for a white tshirt  

J Brand for a leather or denim jacket

WillBe and Nowhereland are new Australian labels that have some great prints for summer. 

What are the ‘key’ fashion pieces in your wardrobe that you can’t live without?

J Brand denim jacket / J Brand leather jacket.  I literally have one of them with me at all times. 

Who do you see as a ‘stylish’ dude, what is the appeal?

For me style is about confidence and how you carry yourself.

The fashion designer talks Morocco and SEPHORA COLLECTION at her Swim 2016 show.

When asked about the inspiration for her Resort Swim 2016 collection, Mara Hoffman described it as “a trip to Marrakech, Morocco over the holidays, with a tie-in of the 1970s, and the time Yves Saint Laurent spent at Le Jardin Majorelle.” The chic swimwear was only enhanced by the show’s moody, bronzed, and dewy beauty. Hoffman elaborated on her vision for the makeup as “a Moroccan desert beauty who has found an oasis garden party—sultry and romantic, yet earthy and grounded in the elements.”

Sephora PRO artist Ilde Conclaves created the face looks for the presentation, using SEPHORA COLLECTION. For the sunkissed glow straight out of Marrakech, Conclaves applied SEPHORA COLLECTION Radiant Luminizing Drops in 03 Morning Light from just beneath the browbone around the outside edge of the eye to the top of the cheekbone in a “C” shape. One couldn’t help but be drawn to the mysterious, enticing eye makeup on the models. Conclaves lined SEPHORA COLLECTION Long Lasting Kohl Pencil in 01 Intense Black on the top lash line and bottom inner rim, then used SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Smudge Brush #11 to smoke it out, finishing with several coats of SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Curl Mascara in Ultra Black. And for the perfect nude lip, Conclaves patted on SEPHORA COLLECTION 10 HR Wear Perfection Foundation with SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Lip Brush #81 to block out any redness before applying the lip color. Next, Conclaves layered two lipstick tones in beige and brown (SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Cream Lipstick in SR30 Love Life and Ingenuous 21) to create a full, multidimensional look.

When it comes to personally using SEPHORA COLLECTION, Hoffman shared her own go-to essential: “I always carry these Express Cleansing Wipes To Go in my bag for a quick and easy refresh throughout the day. They’re also really great to use before applying and also to remove makeup—I go through a few when I have an event at night.”  KELLEY HOFFMAN
