    This portrayal of them as Prince and Princess is amazing! Zac looks handsome, and I’m sure there are more images that we have yet to see taken by Annie Leibowitz. I would love to see Zac’s face…Vanessa looks beautiful, and would love to see them both have eye contact with the camera. I can’t wait for the outtakes!

  • no, not really

    the photo is too close up, unlike almost all of the the other disney pictures. where are they anyway? a medieval laundry room of some sort?

    i love zanessa, but this is the worst picture of leibovitz’s bunch.

    Wow, we have a long way to go to get people to think outside the box.

    Somebody has posted before why these Disney characters were all portrayed as caucasian but in the original fairytales, they are not. With enlightenment and the awareness of cultural stereotypes, Disney is trying to redress what it did and let children know that these tales transcends race and culture but apparently the message is being totally missed. How sad.

    The same way Jesus and Joseph where always portrayed as blond and blue eyed when they were clearly middle eastern and would have looked more like Osama bin laden than Brad Pitt. If a persian were to be cast as Jesus or Joseph in the dreamcoat musical, I can imagine the same people going ‘but Joseph is blond’.

    I thought the point of fairytales was fantasy and letting your minds loose in imaginations. It’s sad that rather we’re raising a generation of people with set minds not open to learn and be flexible. Doesn’t bode well for your country.

    vanessa looks beautiful i can’t wait for her new role in sucker punch

  • lyn

    They are kind of getting annoying doing EVERYTHING together. Don’t get me wrong Zac is Hot!!!

  • Naomi

    Having said my piece. Annie’s photography is a work of art targeted at a certain audience and like all such distinguished works, it doesn’t have to appeal to everyone and not everyone has to get it. People hated Mona Lisa when Da Vinci initially did it and that’s fine.

    I for one love it. It looks like a classic painting. They were both caught in mid-pose, Phillip coming away from his kiss and Aurora’s eyes just fluttered open.

    Aurora is pale as befits one who has been sleeping and Phillip is still flushed from rushing to her and the anxiety of not knowing if she would wake.

    Van looks beyond gorgeous, like an English rose and Zac looks princely. Her beauty is so fluid and exotic that she can pull off different looks, pale, classic, sultry, smoking, an artist’s dream.

    No wonder high profile producers are pursuing her for their movies, first Dead @ 17 then Sucker Punch. I guess industry insiders do see her amazing potential. Now we need a big producer to cast her in a perion drama.

    I love that they are outgrowing their younger fanbase and can transform themselves into a photographer’s or director’s vision so much so that they are barely recognisable as their normal selves, that’s growth in their industry.

    Love that they got this amazing opportunity early on in their careers, to be immortalized by Annie L. So exciting to think that this is just the beginning.

    Some people are so un-cultured it’s funny. This is not meant to be the classic Disney fairy-tale, it’s Annie’s take on it. It’s meant to be how it is. Annie is a genius, and she knows exactly what she’s doing and what she wanted, and no doubt the finished piece is just that, she is a perfectionist after all. Zac and V look beautiful. He is meant to look like that, in contrast to her fair skin, ethereal and airy. It is a truly stunning shoot. Their chemsity just shines, it’s so innocent yet senusal at the same time. Amazing.

    And for you idiots who said about V needing Zac. Hate to break it to you, but she has scored a new role in Sucker Punch, all by herself. So get your facts straight..

  • jrfan

    Interesting. I expected it to be the moment just before he kisses her and not after. Took a second, but once I realized that it was the moment after, I decided that I like it a lot. Kudos to Annie for taking a different route!

  • go sox

    Stunning photograph, seriously. It’s just beautifully done… captured the innocence and romance of a fairy tale perfectly. They look just breathtaking….both of them. Annie outdid herself on this one….but then again, she had beautiful subjects!!

  • Anna

    OH MY GOD! iT’S BREATHTAKING <3333333333

  • endofthworld

    I’m not into artwork at all but this picture is amazingly beautiful. It really pulls you in. I can’t stop looking at it and finding things. I’ve saved it. Good job Annie!

  • marine

    SHE MUST BE BLOND !!!!!!!!!! V is OUT . and the Red lipstick it’s not for her .

  • vancrazed

    What are talking about doing everything together. They ahve no other projects together. If you talking about going to premieres together, going on dates together, shoots together, I think you better get ready because that is what couples do. And that isn’t going to change for these two. If your tired of seeing them together maybe you don’t need to watch TV or read the internet cause they are all over it.

  • vancrazed

    Is it just me, or are some of you realizing that people don’t understand art for what it is. Annie is a legend. Pretty sure she knows how to capture the essence of her subjects. V should not be blond, and the red lipstick brings out the whiteness in her skin, which is necessary becuase of her natural coloring. She looks like a doll. As she should.
    This is Annie art and it is perfect.

  • skippingsarah

    not the top. something’s not right

  • Laura

    This picture is fantastic, Annie Leibovitz is a brilliant photographer and I love her work!!! This picture is gorgeous.

  • Boji

    Hear,hear, Naomi! Very well put. I can’t agree more. A real piece of art work. I must say only ignoramuses would make such derogatory remarks and not appreciate good art work even if it stared them in the face. Unfortunately, Romeo and Juliet is not under the Disney Umbrella. Obviously, Zac and Vanessa would be ideal contenders.

  • Bee

    I can’t believe they got to work along side the genius that is Annie Leibovitz.

    I love that she never does the stereotypical shoots, first Beyonce as Alice in Wonderland, Whoopi Goldberg as The Genie, Marc && J.Lo as Aladdin && Jasmine, Jessica Biel as Pocahantas.

    It’s the same here, she picked the two people she felt could convey the portrait — not the same attributes as the original characters.

    The photo is gorgeous, Annie’s done it again.

  • BABY V supporter

    omg, theyre soooooo into each other <333



    this portrait is just stunning, Anne did an amazing job and Vanessa and Zac are absolutely STUNNING, I mean I totally understand the concept the photoghrapher was going for, it is both romantic and breathtaking. This is really an awesome portrait and by far the best of the series.

    They killed the original

  • Jeff

    This is my least favourite portrait. I thought Annie would blow us away with this one, especially since it’s a while the last one was released. They could’ve done so much with this! The dress is all wrong (and it should’ve been blue) and the way he’s kissing her looks so awkward…. it looks as if he’s the one that’s sleeping instead of her Vanessa.

  • http://yahoo j

    Sleeping Beauty can be blond,red,or brunette.Its fantasy fiction.

  • go sox

    I think some of you are missing the point that this is ANNIE’s interpretation of this scene from the fairy tale. Artists see their subjects in a more creative way, and Annie truly saw the beauty in this shot. WHO CARES ABOUT HER HAIR or dress color?? It doesn’t have to look like the animated movie…….and it doesn’t!! It’s ANNIE’s fantasy of this scene.

    It works, and it’s just beautiful.

  • V-loyalist

    Hi go sox, right on to that!

    My opinion, Annie did an awesome job using our young, lovely couple transforming them into this classic fairy tale. It’s one remarkable work of art and the others featured on the book as well. Honestly, I am no expert in photography but their costume, the backdrop, their expressions is exceptional and they portrayed it really, really good the way Annie wants to internalized it. Well done ZV and Annie.

    I just hope I can have my own copy of the book when it gets available =)

  • pop86

    It’s an amazing picture. I not a big fan of Annie’s work. Sometimes she get it right and sometimes not.
