`Provocative ''style'', ''visions'', ''art'' and more are a special part of life.

TOM TOTALLY NUDE — AGAIN: What Tom Ford did five years ago for full-frontal male nudity in his ads for the M7 fragrance for Yves Saint Laurent, he's about to do for the opposite sex in the ones for Tom Ford for Men. Though the designer took a more demure approach in his original ad campaign for his new fragrance, he's decided to shock the masses once again, switching images shot by Marilyn Minter in April for racier photographs of a dewy woman's body taken by Terry Richardson. The photos range from tame to titillating — the most shocking being the Tom Ford for Men bottle wedged between a woman's glistening thighs, with the bottle barely covering her bare genitalia. "We loved the original Marilyn Minter images, but while on a shoot with [Richardson] in Milan, we decided that a sharper, more graphic approach clearly communicated the bold and provocative mood of the fragrance," said a spokeswoman for Tom Ford Beauty, a division of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc.

How nifty, to take something so silicone looking - very befitting of this era

i think i'd be ok with those ads if they were shot by anyone except terry richardson. he's provocative, but i don't like his photography. not my style i guess.

That Tom Ford ad is an exercise in aversion therapy!

That ad is so unoriginal. It's stupid.

Actually I think that the brand is very original for a luxury label such as Tom Ford. It gets your attention and will make most people who have never heard of Tom Ford, people who don't follow fashion closely, etc. know about this fragrance and the ad is quite memorable.

I don't mind the concept....I do mind the lube, the plastic and the joyless mouth It's one step closer to what's often alluded to in perfume ads, but alluding to something is often better than getting so close to showing it, none of it is subliminal anymore.

Can Tom Ford ever go for subtlety?

This ad is certain to appeal to men of the straight variety. It's quite visual.

Straight men with a taste for women who appear to be helpless....why didn't he call it "On your back or knees, or, preferably, both simultaneously" - I'm sure the French have a name for it
