We know fashion shoots aim to be provocative, but this mother-son layout may be one that just takes it too far. 

The Harper's Bazaar US spread features 44-year-old supermodel Stephanie Seymour and her two sons, who have become society it-boys, Peter, 20 and Harry, 17, holding very provocative poses. 

Back in 2011, Stephanie and Peter made headlines when papped kissing on the beach, which lead to a unfounded and we think odd response that called the pictures weird, and lead Peter to defend the behaviour on Facebook:

"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."

And while, yes, we don't think the photos of a mother and son hanging on the beach were anything that should have been talked about, the Harper's Bazaar editorial seems to be seeking out controversy and has made many feel genuinely uncomfortable, and that doesn't sit right. 


Granted, Peter and Harry Brant, who were dubbed the 'Princes of New York City' by the NY Times, certainly haven't had 'average' childhoods, with their mum a famous model (who's still working for brands like Jason Wu) and their dad, Peter Brant, a billionaire art collector and the chairman of Interview magazine. Their 200-acre Connecticut estate home features "a life-size nude bust" of their mother according to Yahoo, and, as Harper's says, "they're part of a fashionable family who doesn't take itself too seriously."
