I doubt Tom Ford has become lazy regarding his ad campaigns. Maybe accuse him of being a bit dated. All that you see out of him is very much calculated. After all, we're still talking about it.

I know I'll be sampling the scent when its out. From what I read the cologne is my style.

Tom, what were you thinking. This isn't what I expect from you, you can do better than that.
The M7 campain was more about an Hommage to a previous campain by YSL himself, portrayed naked...
As YSL hated Tom Ford, I guess he did this to please him... and by the way, YSL even said the only thing Tom was good for was the campains...

If his product was worth trying he wouldn't have to go to such pathetic measures to capture your attention.

Not necessarily true. Even your most well known product that has a monopoly on the market will resort to such tactics. Welcome to the world of advertisement.

I just saw the "Extraordinary" editorial from Steven Miesel on vogue.it. It's been posted already on tFS here and here.

I see nothing fashionable about war.

i don't have a problem with that because although it evokes war, it doesn't make it look glamorous at all and it is artistically done.

I actually love that cover, the editorial was a disappointment. Wasn't all that offended by it though.

In a weird way, I appreciate what it's doing. For so many people, war is a part of everyday life, to the point that to some people (myself included) who aren't directly involved in it it's become almost normal. By taking war out of it's context, it becomes shocking again.

That's just what I take from it.

What disturbs me about those photos are the near-rape scenes.

If you truly have been a part of a war, it is definatly not normal. None of us have been in a full war, where atrocities are witnessed daily. If you have (which I doubt, sincrerely) then I don't think you would say the world 'normal'. What its doing is adding glamour to war. War should not be viewed as shocking since Vogue Italia did an editorial on it. That is not its place, to add Chanel and Dior to the battlefields of the world. Very disrespectful when you consider those who have been part of actual war and the editors of Vogue Italia simply sit back and their seats comfortable... and think of how to shock as next.
