Androgynous or just plain misogynistic?

These are the new photos featured in Tom Ford's 2012 Lookbook. Way more boobs, bums and flesh than clothes I must say. They look very androgynous, yet, the misogynistic nature of the pics tick me off. It's fun and playful, yet it reminds us of the '50s ads. The focus almost always on the man, looking powerful, as the woman sits quietly, looking vulnerable.

'My hero.'

The woman tends to the mans needs.

The woman is dominated by the man in these pictures, hence the misogynistic undertone.

She is merely an extra, a toy. He's the important one.
