Tom Ford's skeevy, lecherous Vanity Fair

Ew. There are so many things about the new Vanity Fair cover that make me uncomfortable, I don't know where to start. It might be that, for a change, VF's cover girls are not, er, over-clothed. Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley join last month's cover girl Lindsay Lohan in the buff (from the LiLo portfolio inside), along with Naomi Watts (in a slip), Jennifer Aniston (in a dress shirt sans bottoms), Kate Moss (avec nipple), and Brad Pitt and Jude Law. Oh, wait. Even better, on the inside they've got Angelina Jolie ass-up in the bathtub, and George Clooney buck naked as he busily directs fully-clothed women on a film set. Oh, wait.

Also, I am neither the first to comment on it nor the first to be skeeved out by it, but Tom Ford sniffing rapturously at Keira Knightley? Ew. (And it makes no difference that Tom's gay, just as it surely would make no difference to him if Keira and Scarlett were lesbians).

At least Vanity Fair was able to snag renowned Vietnam-era war photographer Peter Arnett to join in on the shoot. Oh, wait.

*Yes, I am well aware that I live in a glass house. Throw ye your stones. Tom Ford sniffing Keira Knightley is still gross.
