Stephanie Seymour poses for Bazaar with her sons clinging to her legs: creepy?


Back in 2011, Stephanie Seymour was on vacation in St. Bart’s with her two sons. The paparazzi got some strange photos of Stephanie frolicking in the surf with those sons and a lot of people were like, “Ew, inappropriate.” There were several photos where it looked like Stephanie and her son Peter Brant Junior (then 17) were kissing on the lips as he grabbed her boob. Junior’s explanation for the photos made it worse: his explanation was that he’s gay and he and his mom have a special relationship. The hell?

So, long story short, Stephanie and her sons have decided to revive this controversy in the pages of Harper’s Bazaar. Pantsless Stephanie posed for Bazaar with her sons clinging provocatively to her legs, because OF COURSE.

Oh, mama! Those aren’t any random male models clinging to Stephanie Seymour’s leg — those are her sons. The 45-year-old supermodel posed for Harper’s Bazaar wearing sexy lingerie, and had her boys — Peter Brant II, 20, and Harry, 17 — pose with her.

The provocative spread comes three years after she was photographed in a tiny bikini on a St. Bart’s beach, frolicking and kissing Peter, who said people were “gross” for insinuating he had an inappropriate relationship with his mom.

“They are fearless kids. They grew up surrounded by art,” a family friend told me. “They decided to combat silliness with silliness.”

Harper’s Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Glenda Bailey said, “It’s a coup to have captured Stephanie Seymour’s first photo session with her sons. They are a family that puts the fun into fashion.”

The boys grew up in Greenwich, Conn., with a life-size nude bust of their mother on the wall — a work by Maurizio Cattelan, who was inspired by the taxidermied hunting trophies of their father, polo-playing art collector Peter Brant.

When the beach photos caused a stir three years ago, Peter II — who describes himself on Facebook as “a designer, art collector, socialite and model” — stated: “My mother and I are very close as she is with all her children . . . We have nothing to hide and with that in mind I would like to say that I am openly gay . . . and yes, our relationship may be different because of my sexuality.”

Seymour, who was once engaged to Guns N’ Roses rocker Axl Rose, is a marvel of motherhood, with two other kids as well. She’s looking good. She can’t help being hot.

So, is this inappropriate? Well… I guess…? I actually think Stephanie is probably a very tolerant, loving and adoring mother. She’s obviously very close to her sons and they seem to worship her. So, I think their relationship is solid. But they could try to be a little bit more thoughtful about how they appear to everyone outside their little world.

    I think I read in interview with those kids a couple of years ago and they seemed super spoiled and up their own a**es.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    There’s a sexual vibe about the photos that seems creepy and inappropriate to me. I’m not saying anything inappropriate is going on, but what would we think of a sexualized portrait of a father and his daughters? I don’t understand why they want to present that image.

  3. Zbornak Syndrome says:

    That man would have NEVER gotten this girl if he did not have money. Sorry, first thing I thought when I saw the pics.

  4. Jaded says:

    Inappropriate. Art for Art’s Sake as one of my favourite bands, 10CC, aptly put it. They look like they rub her feet and call her “mumsy”.

  5. Elisabeth says:

    there was another pic (same shoot) that was even creepier then this.

  6. Paige says:

    I think it’s fine….sounds like they have good communication and a good relationship….but people will see what they want-we are fairly puritanical in this country…

  7. Renee says:

    I can’t bring myself to comment on the pictures except to say, holy photoshop much???

  8. Faye says:

    I feel bad commenting on this article, because she’s got to be doing this type of thing to troll for attention, and we’re giving it to her. Does anything inappropriate actually occur? Probably not. Is this pose still incredibly wrong on many levels? I’d say most definitely yes.

    I do love her friends’ justification: “her children grew up surrounded by art!” Um, so did many of us, and yet that did not translate into sexy poses with our parents.

  9. mercy says:

    She so different in the pic on the front page. I didn’t recognise her at all.

    Creepy and a ploy for attention.

  10. MrsBPitt says:

    I remember the beach pics and thinking that they truly did look inappropriate…Can you imagine if a father was at the beach and was kissing his teen daughter on the lips while both in skimpy swimsuits…These photo’s don’t seem as bad, however, still odd…

    • pretty kitty says:

      I looked at the beach photos then and now and thought she was just smashed!!
      she has admitted to substance / alcohol problems in the past, she just kept her sh*t quieter… but she was well known on smack back when she was with axl..
      I saw the beach photos as drunk/high mom and son putting protective arm around like
      “it’s okay mom we’re on vacay you can’t drown the water is 2 ft deep!!!”
      I always saw those touchy-feely photos of him picking up drunksy-mommy again!!!

  11. ileana says:

    Good for them. They don’t owe anything to anybody. The way they choose to live their life is their own.

  12. Geekychick says:

    But they could try to be a little bit more thoughtful about how they appear to everyone outside their little world.

    Are they politicians? In some kind of public office? Raising children of half the USA? My question is: why should they be careful about how the world perceives their family relationship? How is it our business?
    They may be very connected and comfortable with their mom-who are we to judge?
    I mean, my mom used to dance naked with me after bath when I was little, and we went to nudist beaches sometimes as a family, and when there were sex-scenes on TV when I was growing up, nobody jumped to change the channel. And believe it or not, I’m a normal, not traumatized grown woman, who has healthy body image and loves her family. oh, we crazy Europeans!

  13. eliza says:

    I wonder why Seymour never is photographed with her eldest son from her first marriage and he is rarely, if ever mentioned. Her daughter is also rarely mentioned either. It is like the two Brandt boys are the stars and by all accounts are obnoxious and pretentious brats

    Also, when Axl Rose seems like a stable one in a relationship, you know the other person must be bat shit crazy.

  14. Cara says:

    It’s incredibly unhealthy for her to need attention from her children in that capacity. They will have a lot of trouble having healthy relationships in their futures.
    It doesn’t matter how you live, if you are “artsy”, etc, there are certain boundaries, that when crossed, screw up your kids. Unfortunately for kids they tend to think whatever they grew up with is normal, so it takes a lot of failed relationships and emotionally difficult years to figure out that they have poorly defined boundaries themselves. So, then they can’t maintain healthy relationships, and tend to attract people with the same issues.

  15. Frenzy says:

    That beach pic was creeeeepy! Imagine if that was a father kissing his daughter and touching her boobs.

  16. Maureen says:

    You should read the article Vanity Fair did with them a while back. These boys are DREADFUL. Really, really terrible. And they know it. It’s part of their “thing”, being just dreadful. Really, find the article and read that. You can hardly believe teenagers live the way they do.

    EDIT: Here the article is. It’s from 2012.

    • Maureen says:

      Harry as a child going to one of his mother’s fashion shoots:

      *** He says he once did a shoot with her for a Victoria’s Secret Mother’s Day ad, which turned out to be a bit of a disaster. He was three. “I threw the biggest tantrum diva fit you could ever imagine,” he said. “I complained about the craft services, and I made someone go out and buy a bagel and a croissant for me because I was appalled that they didn’t have either.” ***

      He was 3 years old and he MADE someone step n’ fetch for him. How do you think he got away with that? His mother. You know, there’s such a thing as parents loving their children, but that doesn’t make them good parents.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      My God–I only got through the first page. What horrible little brats. And we’re talking about how creepy it is that people project onto the JP kids–what they said about Suri??? How she’s a celebrity, how they want to meet her (she was like, 4??), how she’s such a style icon for picking out some ladybug rain boots or whatever….what??? Creepy.

    • Kiki says:

      Thank you Maureen. Just read the whole thing. I am shocked… I always thought I was privileged while growing up but never with this attitude. It gave me light into what to do or not to do when I raise my own children. I feel really bad for these two. They are screwed. They don’t even have a proper education!

    • Size Does Matter says:

      I read the article and now I kind of love them. They’re like exotic zoo birds or something. Beautiful, flighty, and harmless.

    • jaye says:

      I couldn’t get past the Suri Cruise comments. And that pic of one of them wearing a neck kerchief. Who wears neck kerchiefs anymore? He reminded me of Fred from Scooby Doo. They are doing entirely too much.

  17. glaugh says:

    As someone above commented, this is one of the tamer photos from the shoot. The one with the sons untying her laced-up thigh boots? ugh no

    Obvious she’s just desperate for attention, doesn’t concern me at all.

  18. NerdMomma says:

    Meh. I see nothing sexual at all. I think they’re cute. Is there a third kid?

  19. shitler says:

    Lol..Um who thought him to pose like that in the last pic?

  20. africana! says:

    Thank you for posting this,first time commenter here.I recently fell out with my sister-in-law who is about 32 because she insisted on taking of her clothes and going stark naked(pubic hair&all)before a shower in front of my husband who is 35.she said they always change in front of each other&it wasn’t a big deal but it made me uncomfortable&i politely asked her to change in d bathroom…hence the falling out!can someone pls tell me if I was wrong?

  21. Nerd Alert says:

    I wouldn’t put my face that close to either parent’s uncovered cooch but whatever floats your boat, Mr. Brant.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Weird to pose after puberty with face next to mommy’s lady garden. Even more weird to do so while wearing white gym socks and no shoes. Did they blow the whole budget on bagels and croissants and have nothing left for shoes?

      • Nerd Alert says:

        LOL I’m glad I read that 2012 story or I wouldn’t have caught the reference. What sh!tty young men and a totally irresponsible mother…regardless of where they keep their faces with respect to each others’ flowers and watering cans.

        I’m going to spend the rest of the day thinking of fancy euphemisms for sex organs :)

  22. Cecilia says:

    Normally, I wouldn’t have given these pics a second thought, but after those downright gross beach pics — yeah, it’s creepy & they know it.

  23. cro-girl says:

    I dont think its sexual… it’s weird.

  24. Talie says:

    Stephanie basically gave birth to her own set of gay men who will worship her until the end of time — not any different than most female celebs, she’s just their mother, so it comes off odd to people.

  25. phlyfiremama says:

    I must say Papa has quite the eyebrow game!! Darn you Michael K…

  26. LouLou says:

    I think it’s creepier that they had a bust of her hanging on the wall of their house that mimicked the dead animals her husband killed.

  27. laura says:

    Stephanie Seymour is well known to be a self absorbed B…H, she is not a good mom. Opposite to Christy Turlington or Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford ( they are all great mothers). No wonder why the Brandt boys are spoil brats.

  28. Narak says:

    It’s like Little Britain “Bitty!!”

  29. JenniferJustice says:

    It seems they did this purposely because the public already thinks there’s something inappropriate or sexual between the elder son and Seymour. It’s in bad taste, but I doubt they really have the hots for their mom.

  30. Source says:

    I’m a pretty tolerant liberal-minded person, who thinks my fellow Americans get uptight over stupid things. I think we sexualize things that aren’t sexual and get all heated up about nothing.

    So when I say this photo sends a shiver down my spine, and not in a good way, you know I’m not just some prude. This is meant to be sexual. From the dress to the pose to the way he’s holding her leg.

  31. GIRLFACE says:

    Um… I just looked up this shoot and saw the photo where the boys are pulling on her corseted thigh high stockings while she is literally wearing nothing but a sheer negligee? I have no words. So dirty.

  32. David says:

    A big problem that I have is there seems to be a lot of hate around on the boys. That they should have known better. Imagine if it had been a similar shoot of a father and 20 and 17 year old daughters. They would be hating on the dad and throwing the word paedophile around.
