Disgraced on all fronts: one of the richest men in the world, Jeff Bezos, and his fiancée were harshly criticized for their Vogue photo

Jeff Bezos and his fiancée Lauren Sanchez were harshly criticized

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, whose fortune is estimated at $155 billion, making him the second richest man in the world, has been harshly criticized online for a photo shoot with his fiancée Lauren Sanchez. The lovers posed for the legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz for the December issue of Vogue. The naked eye can see how hard the retouchers worked on the photos. In the end, Internet users trashed the couple's photo shoot, calling it "disgusting," "uncomfortable," and "played out."

Angry and sometimes funny sarcastic comments were left on Vogue's Instagram page under posts about Bezos and Sanchez. Later, the magazine published exclusive footage from a private party celebrating the engagement of the billionaire and his chosen one. Predictably or not, these photos were also met with criticism online.

As for the photo shoot for the iconic Annie Leibovitz, users do not understand who allowed the photos to be published in this form. First, Vogue showed solo photos of 53-year-old Lauren Sanchez. She posed against the backdrop of the desert, in an airplane and a spaceship. The authors christened the photo shoot with the eloquent title "Lauren Sanchez Looks to the Future," and subscribers were quick to accuse the publication of "glorifying billionaires," calling it completely inappropriate against the backdrop of "everything that is happening in the world."

Users expressed the opinion that the images look like they were generated by artificial intelligence. Others suggested that the photos were "ironically photoshopped". Users couldn't help but think that Vogue was simply forced to make such shots under pressure from Bezos, because the photos look completely out of character with the iconic fashion magazine.

"This is just disgusting", "How much did you get paid for this photo shoot?", "This is the most disgusting post I have ever seen. Unfollowing", "It's not very fashionable to idolize people who are destroying the planet and destroyed hoods all over the country", "This is a surprisingly disappointing and pointless post, and the timing is very bad", "What the hell is this? With everything going on in the world, you decided to promote these two? I'm so confused and angry," commentators wrote.

Later, however, a joint photo of the entrepreneur and his fiancée was posted online. And here, in addition to the magazine's accusations of "glorifying billionaires," readers paid special attention to Bezos' photoshopped body. The 59-year-old rich man had his arm muscles visibly "built up," which was met with a flurry of sarcastic jokes and hate in the comments.

"I've never felt so uncomfortable as looking at this photo", "Is this a joke? Who's responsible for these pictures?", "I was shown this photo shoot against my will", "Bring back the old Vogue!", "I just wonder how much he paid you for this photoshop", - ironically, the netizens say.

The criticism of the couple and Vogue itself did not end there. The magazine published an interview with the fiancée of the second richest man in the world, as well as photos from the engagement party. It's worth starting with the latter. For the celebration, which took place in a luxurious apartment in Beverly Hills, Sanchez chose a white short Laura Basci dress with off-the-shoulder straps and a basque at the waist, as well as a custom-made precious cross necklace by Lorraine Schwartz. The image of the bride was called vulgar, in particular because of her large neckline. You can see the photos in the article.

At the party, the couple welcomed Oprah Winfrey, Salma Hayek, Barbra Streisand, Kris Jenner, Robert Pattinson, Miranda Kerr, and other guests.

For Sanchez, this was her debut publication in Vogue, and what a smash! However, the woman was criticized not only because of her vulgar image or overly photoshopped photos, but because of the interview itself. Readers believe that Bezos's beloved inappropriately boasts of her wealth, and this should not have been broadcast to Vogue's large audience.

In particular, in the interview, Sanchez talked about how Bezos proposed to her. It happened in May of this year on the billionaire's luxury yacht. After a dinner for two under the starry sky, the woman returned to her room, took off her makeup, and was about to go to bed when she found a ring case under her pillow. "When Jeff opened it, I think I fainted for a moment," Sanchez told reporters.

The ring was decorated with a huge pink diamond. Jeweler Ajay Anand of Rare Carats estimated its weight at 20 carats. According to the expert, the gift cost Bezos about $2.5 million.

As Sanchez says, the couple is in no hurry to get married. They allegedly can't decide what kind of day it will be: lavish for a large number of people or quiet and only for their own, abroad or at home, etc.
