Zac and V in Sleeping Beauty Portrait  
We need to bestow our praise upon the guy who scanned this for us seriously.

Zac and Vanessa as: Prince Phillip and Princess Aurora:

It's beautiful but it seems like the wrong one has their eyes closed, lol.

ETA: Guys, I think this one was really a miss for Annie and Disney. I've decided they really should have done this shot:

That would have been so beautiful. And it would have been totally appropriate for Zac and Vanessa.

But really they could have at least had them in the right clothes and pose, etc.

I wished his eyes were open. He has too much makeup on too. But still excited about finally being able to see the picture.

I think, since he's kissing her, it's supposed to be the moment she wakes up, but yeah, that was my first impression too.

Something seems a bit off about it...Vanessa looks more like someone else but I can't place who.

I think she looks like Leighton Meester here. Too pasty.

OK TBH NOW I AM SO FEELING LIKE THAT COMMENT IS TRUE. You know which one I mean, the one where she is trying to watch ABDC and he is trying to get some and she's like uhhhhhhh wait until the commercial, babe.

I'm not the only one who feels there's something off with this picture then.
It's not like Leibovitz - a genius - to mess up.
He looks like he's ABOUT to kiss her in which case her eyes should be closed. But on the other hand if he has only JUST kissed her, shouldn't she be looking up at him? I get the impression the princess is turning her head away from the prince!?!
I swear it's not bc I dislike V, but this photo is not the least bit romantic. The dress is to die for though.

It looks like the scene when Romeo finds Juliet dead. V's face is expressionless and Zac needs his eyes open. :(

Love his hair though, reminds me so much of Jimmy Marsden in Enchanted lol.

Wrong pose, its just blah.

Love the dress though lol.

OMG I never thought of Marsden before but now that I looked again I saw it!
I also totally see where you're coming from with the Romeo & Juliet comparison.
Btw I hope you like the new icon that I just made myself... ;)

Yeah, I'm disappointed as well.

First off, it looks nothing like the other shots. The style is different. This just looks cheap - low production values and no set up. Like, lie her down on a blanket and put a few flowers on her.

Vanessa just looks bored out of her mind - something is off. And I totally agree about the position being wrong and the eyes.

Plus, too little Zac.

hi, have been reading your posts for awhile, but always just lurk...

i absolutely love this shot......
its completely unconventional and that's what Leibovitz does. back when these characters were created there was an ideal of beauty...blonde, blue-eyed, god forbid anyone had an air of ethnicity about them. Leibovitz threw all that out the window!

the pose is somewhat hard to judge as the angle of the shot is misleading as to what position they are actually in, they almost appear floating.... the mood offers a brothers grimm vibe rather than depicting the disney animated classic, which to me is a good thing....

her eyes are open and somewhat dazed b/c she just awoke from a evil spell, she's still unsure where she is nor quite sure what woke her.....she doesn't see her prince, yet she feels him as his mouth lingers against her face......

he's yearning to awaken her, and the fact that the only thing touching her is his lips is highly erotic. he appears to be sweeping his mouth across her skin, inhaling her essence.......fervently 'dreaming' she will finally awaken......

that's my take on it!!!!! i seem to be in the minority ?????

hello :)

welcome and feel free to discuss.

the picture isn't altogether bad, i just feel it could have been so much more. and probably should have been, especially compared to the other shots in this series.

i don't care about the ethnicity but the clothes being wrong and pose being off really detract from the power of the iconic disney visuals that were meant to be the foundation of this series of photos.

and i don't know, the more and more i think about it, i really would have loved a dancing in the woods scene. it could have been so beautifully designed. ugh.

i don't even care that it's all wrong, JUST LOOK AT ZAC'S LIPS.

aside from the too-much-blush look i think he's hot. i just need more of him.

Photos by Annie vs. Disney Dream Series
Shots of Drew Barrymore portraying Beauty/Belle, Keira Knightley as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and Natalie Vodianova as Alice in Wonderland are NOT a part of the Disney Dream Portrait Series. They were all photoshoots accompanying past VOGUE cover stories with the aforementioned actors/models. The Wizard of Oz isn't even a Disney film...

Does no one read Vogue anymore? :(

I totally agree that the dancing scene would have been so much more amazing. Not to mention it would have added to the scenery a lot more. There's something about Zac's face that looks a little off here, but Vanessa looks beautiful, even if his eyes should be open and hers should be closed.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 8th, 2009 01:35 pm (UTC)
I think it is mostly the blush. That and he isn't often photographed from that side I don't think.

This looks really Twilight-y, and I think Zac should have been a greater focal point even if this IS Sleeping Beauty.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 10th, 2009 05:08 am (UTC)
Zac should always be the focus in any photograph.
