You really need to define what you mean by excessive or gratuitous nudity. When do you think it is OK to show nudity?
And you give Terry Richardson's work as an example, however his work is markedly distinct from other photographer's work which also features nude images.
Is it that you feel uncomfortable seeing breasts etc? Or in your view are sexuality and fashion basically separate, not necassarily related?
I think nudity is excessive in fashion when it dominates rather than complements the clothes. For example, if a shot shows a model in a dress - but the picture is cropped so you only see a tiny bit of the dress because the photographer focused on the breasts/body/face - then I might find it annoying.
