Tom Ford's Forbidden Ad by Terry Richardson

Tom Ford recreates the double standard in a cheeky outtake that was too racy for Out Magazine to print in the magazine's pages. The image by photographer Terry Richardson, also responsible to the very risque perfume campaign, is clearly inspired by the original often-rejected advertisements.

"It was meant to be a play on the new [fragrance] campaign. But there’s a double standard with featuring female nudity and featuring male nudity. When people say to me, ‘Well, you objectify women,’ [I say] I’m an equal opportunity objectifier. We had a lot of magazines reject the female version [of the campaign], so the male version is going to get rejected even more."

Richardson always do this kind of things. I don't like so much his work, I prefer Ellen Von Unwerth for sexy stuff.
