Everyone’s talking about that. Everywhere I turn my head it’s either Angie’s breastfeeding photos by Brad Pitt for W magazine or the US financial clash. At least I’ve got the choice! (Pictures from the magazine updated at the end of the article!)
I won’t get financial, we’re Stylefrizz. We love fashion and entertainment. So I’d go for Angelina Jolie and her fifth and sixth children, the twins Knox and Vivienne, her natural children with partner Brad Pitt. It’s not in discrimination that I’m saying the above, it’s because few years ago, W magazine published photos of her, Brad Pitt and five children in a story about domestic bliss in 1963. Prophecy or just marketing? (more pictures after the jump)
W is betting again on the most powerful couple of the world (at least as far as entertainment goes) and for its November 2008 issue make public a set of thirty something “private” photos of the Brangelina household. Photos said to be taken by Brad Pitt (in August 2008, in their residence from France) with her partner breastfeeding the twins. All we’ve got for now is the cover to freely speculate. And the first obvious thing adding an irony tail to the “private” thing is Angelina’s full eye makeup…
The sad thing is that this image covers an art issue. Even if it’s a statement about how celebrity can (and successfully does) replace a model, professionally suited for magazine covers and magazine spreads, Angelina Jolie (breastfeeding) on the cover of W magazine is somewhat misplaced. Yes, we live troubled times and marketing is a mean game (and this issue will most surely be a smashing hit) but it’s undoubtedly offending when it comes to true art. And just because she’s being photographed by Brad Pitt doesn’t make more artsy than Juergen Teller’s blitz burned pictures. Or maybe it’s just me.
Contrary to what it may seem obvious reading these lines, I liked Angelina. Like is an understatement. I had an obsession with her and her troubled ways. As I’ve said it before, that’s no secret to you. I have no measure of Brad Pitt’s artistic sense and (even if his architectural skills could prove me wrong) I think he has not the eye of a professional photographer. By all means, my husband has a passion for photography and to me he’s the world’s greatest photographer! But I’d like to hear you out. Tell me what you think about W’s November story with Angie and Brad. And the kids!
UPDATE: I also added all the controversial pictures from Angelina’s W photo shooting by Brad Pitt. (click thumbnails to see larger images) (photos tfs, wmagazine)
UPDATE: Here are few of the pictures from the W Magazine:
I like Brad and Angelina and they sell magazines. Brad’s photos of her will probably be as good as any taking by a spouse who is not a pro. I have no problem with this but I know that there will be people who will.
I’m more fascinated the b/w cover of W.I find it so … normal!
Anyway I like the couple no matter what their detractors say.
Sorry girls, I think these people are wacko. Nothing is private what they do we all have to witness every move they make even this. Private?
Another apology, I know you don’t want to talk about here, but Kpriss its not the US that’s in a financial clash it is the whole world. We’re all in it…..and I wonder what this will do to the overpaid celebrity luxury and so our entertainment….
she’s so beautiful! brad did a great job
I appreciate you posting these photos (I have been looking for them everywhere!) but I have to say that I disagree with your thoughts on them. Art has always been something that pushes boundaries and I think that a photo of a woman breastfeeding (although I believe it to be one of the most beautiful and natural things in the world) falls right into that category by it’s very nature (that so many people find it offensive or inappropriate). I was rather impressed by Brad Pitt’s photographic presentation of Angelina. I think he has an incredible eye for photography; his photographs are unconventional and extremely intimate and beautiful at the same time. I think that the fact that the cover photo has stirred up so much controversy just reinforces the appropriateness of it being the cover of an art issue.
