Brad Pitt is Brioni’s new brand ambassador, but does he look subtly tweaked?

When did you first notice Brad Pitt’s very subtle and good-quality face work? I remember people talking about it months before the 2016 plane incident, actually. I’m looking through our archives, and people thought he looked subtly different in late 2015/early 2016. After Angelina Jolie left him, Brad had not been seen in a while, and then he started making some appearances and he looked very “fresh.” But as I said, it was barely noticeable, which is the sign of good plastic surgery, in my opinion. Brad looked like himself, only a touch younger, a touch “tighter” and… basically, like he’d gotten some good sleep.

Skip ahead to this year’s Golden Globes, and I guess I hadn’t seen him in motion in a while, because I feel like he got some new work for the awards season. In Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, his face moved and he emoted and all of that. But at the Globes… everything was tighter, fresher, shinier. I bring all of this up because I want to know when these Brioni photos were taken! Brad Pitt is now the brand ambassador for Brioni, and they did a really great photoshoot with him.

Brioni introduces its Spring/Summer 2020 ‘Tailoring Legends’ advertising campaign featuring brand ambassador Brad Pitt. Lensed in Los Angeles by photographer Mikael Jansson, Pitt is portrayed in black and white images, capturing his laidback and effortless appeal.

The series of portraits stand out with an intimate atmosphere that contrasts with Pitt’s strong personality and brings his iconic sense of style to a selection of Brioni’s finest ready to wear and eveningwear from the Spring/Summer 2020 Collection.

Brad used to be a Tom Ford guy – Ford was his go-to suit-and-tux provider throughout the marriages to Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie. But I guess Brioni offered him more money. It’s kind of great, in a way, that men are now cashing in on their awards seasons too. Announcing a brand-ambassadorship during the Oscar season is such an “actress” thing. Well, I hope Brad IS getting paid. He and Angelina still haven’t worked out the financial aspect of their divorce, you know. But no one is talking about that as Brad picks up all of these awards for OUATIH. Just like no one is talking about Brad’s now-noticeable face work. Ah, to be a white dude in Hollywood, huh.

    A woman in Hollywood would not be allowed those forehead wrinkles though.

  2. Snazzy says:

    Not so subtly tweaked, I’d say

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      His lower eyes showed work at the Golden Globes.
      He had a real refresh post his split from AJ – as did she.
      He had real work since which makes him look more feminine somehow

  3. OKsauce says:

    It’s very good surgery though. I am sure his doc is the best in the business. Maybe it’s the same one Tom Cruise uses.

  4. Mrs. Peel says:

    He looks amazing – perhaps due to some tweaking, but likely because he quit drinking.

  5. Lona says:

    He looks great

  6. Lindy says:

    He really does look fantastic. I honestly can’t tell if he had any work done? But I’m not always the best at picking up on that.

  7. Sierra says:

    Tom Ford still dresses Angelina occasionally so he must have chosen Angie in the divorce haha.

    I actually don’t think Brad had anything done, it’s more like he has gotten rid of the alcohol face and now looks better.

    • smcollins says:

      That’s what I think, too. He had that puffy look about him towards the end of his & Angelina’s marriage, the most obvious tell-tale sign of a heavy drinker/alcoholic. He got sober and started taking better care of himself, and it shows. It’s certainly possible that he’s been “freshened up” but I think it’s most likely attributed to getting sober. Whatever the reason I think he looks fantastic.

  8. Sarah says:

    Quitting drinking probably did wonder for his skin. Another thing he should thank Jolie for but probably never will.

  9. Originaltessa says:

    If he’s had work done, what is it? He looks like Brad Pitt. I can’t see the tweaking. Now Bradley Cooper on the other hand…

  10. Kaye says:

    He resembles a less lean Ethan Hawke now, at least head on.

  11. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I don’t know…he looks the same to me. Perhaps a bit airbrushed but other than that? Nope.
    I think a LOT of what we are seeing is Brad without the effects of alcoholism.

  12. MellyMel says:

    He looks really good! I don’t see any tweaking tho…he’s looked like for a minute.

  13. Umma says:

    How will I ever go back to sleep this morning. Dreamy Brioni man

  14. CityGirl says:

    I think it’s because he quit drinking – Excessive Alcohol tears up the face.

  15. NΞΞNΔ ZΞΞ says:

    Photoshop is the most likely reason behind this amazing photo shoot…

  16. Madi says:

    He looks amazing! I am always so inspired by people who take the steps to better themselves. Bravo to Brad on his sobriety.

    • Sierra says:

      I wont give Brad credit until he stops smearing his ex wife and the children.

      If someone really wants to better themselves, they start by taking responsibility for the hurt they caused and try and repair that. Brad choose his image & Hollywood over his children. He deserves zero applause.

  17. Starkille says:

    Who/ what the hail is Brioni? Never heard of it. Assume it’s something sold at Macy’s?

    • Bookie says:

      VERY high-end men’s clothing, like $5,000 sport blazers and $1,500 jogging pants.

      He looks great! Whatever tweaking is subtle, but I agree that being sober definitely helped.

      Leo should look to Brad as inspiration so he can lose his bloat face.

  18. Truth hurts says:

    He hasn’t tweaked anything. Still wrinkled puffy under eye leather face. Due to the smoking drinking and whatever he does.
    Pimping clothes now eh?

  19. Ferdinand says:

    I do believe it’s because he sobered up. My brother is an alcoholic, but once he went to rehab and stopped drinking his whole skin / body shape changed. He followed a new diet and of course alcohol got out of his system and his skin improved like crazy. He looks now younger and slender. Rehab did wonders for him. So I assume it did the same with Brad, specially if he paid one of the most expensive programs, which he can easily afford.

  20. Kim says:

    I wonder how you can tell anything from these pictures. All I see is crazy as f*ck photoshop

  21. Kay says:

    He used Jennifer Aniston’s stylist for the shoot he is working with her. Wow he really wants to hurt Angelina Jolie by getting close to Aniston. She dumped Justin so she could go running to Brad. He must be using her plastic surgeon too.

    • Dina says:

      Using the same stylist doesn’t mean he’s close to Jen Aniston…..Those stylists work with lots of stars ….He cleared things up at the Globes that he is Single and Jen is a good friend …that’s all….Using her stylist is not a big deal….besides he has lots of stylists not just this one

  22. Notsoperfect says:

    I just can’t forgive him for what he’s done to Angelina and her beautiful family. He should be Dlisted for his behaviour, not rewarded with Alist status. He took a breathtaking woman in her prime and broke her, seemingly for his own selfish needs. I pray every day for Angelina and her angels.

  23. Kay says:

    The stylist Nino mainly works with Jen, and is her close friend. He could have worked with anyone. He also went to her Christmas party at her house and was also seen at Mexico at the same time. He is making a conscious choice about what he is doing and that fuels the tabloid gossip. J.A. has always been obsessed with him she even keeps close to his family – which is very odd behaviour. This probably puts other women off him – she doesn’t want other women getting close to him and also uses her friends to keep an eye on him. Desperation is never attractive.

  24. A says:

    I like Brad but its very clear that he’s trying to hurt Angelina with all his latest antics, someone needs to tell him that he’s too old for these games.

    How are those new Orleans home owners doing?
