People who take themselves too seriously debate: Vanity Fair -- sexy or sexist?

I just found this amazing picture on She thinks it’s awful. I think it’s friggin phenomenal.

It makes fun of the 2006 Vanity Fair (cover sporting Tom Ford with Hollywood beauties Scarlett Johannson and Keira Knightley.

She thinks that cover was sexist. I think it was pretty rad. Can a picture that features two vastly different female forms and a gay guy all getting cozy together really be that offensive?

That woman gives empowered and strong women like us a bad name! I adored the original and absolutely love the new and improved!

I completely agree! I'm empowered AND I can laugh at myself and my male counterparts!

i LOVED that original cover! Tom Ford is the sexiest gay guy ever, and in my opinion, the naked female figure is as alluring and beautiful as a man in a great suit!

she's just jealous. if i had a bod like scarlet i would pose for nakie photos all the time! and i like the fact that vanity fair's reproduced cover shows a morelighthearted side to the mag. totally unexpected from them!
