Gawker's Index: Tom Ford's Very Weird Hollywood

We've known all along that the Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue (Now With More Tom Ford!) was sort of creeping us out. But other than for really obvious reasons — naked-women/clothed-man; tit-biting; No With More Tom Ford! — we didn't bother to figure out why. Fortunately, though, Salon's Rebecca Traister did. She performed some serious analysis of the issue, and now, thanks to her research, we can examine the true creepiness of Tom Ford's Hollywood:
