Some of the shots from Tom Ford’s shoot with Out proved to be too steamy for the gay glossy.
Not ones to waste a perfectly good Terry Richardson picture, the Out media machine’s circulating one particular shot, which they described to us as “super exclusive” but it’s already appeared on Radar, who claim the publicist has been saving just for them. Funny, we heard the same thing. How queer – and gay, too.
Of the shot, a boyish take on his vaginal cologne campaign, Ford says:
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.
Ain’t no rejection here, Tommy boy!
