(belated) Happy Nude Year

Vanity Fair's latest 'Hollywood' issue hit the newsstands to mixed opinion. Opinion seems to be as much divided over the issue of guest artistic director Tom Ford's appearance in his own concept (shot by Annie Liebowitz) as the relative merits of the shot and the age-old art v.s. porn debate.

Culture Vulture blogger Xan Brooks claims Ford's work is "neither arousing enough to sate the masturbators, nor artistic enough to appeal to the aesthetes" hitting neither the nude or the naked celebrity shot buttons, instead "falling between the (butt) crack"

Ford defended his appearance in the shot after Wedding Crashers star Rachel McAdams backed out: “Three girls in a bed is a bedful of girls, but two girls in a bed are lesbians…"

Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter commented: “A lot of women actually, a couple of men, too, wanted to [step in and] take their clothes off”

Really? I bet that was a long queue

I see you didn't add your thoughts to the Guardian Unlimited comments section. Probably a good thing...

Whatever the comments... Personally I think Tom Ford simply had a good time. Can't blame him!

@Andrea - very surprised at some of the comments in the GU post. They obviously don't moderate their comments like the BBC do

@Serge - I'd have been first in the queue given half a chance
