Although Michael Jackson died less than a week ago, one of his photo shoots is just now being picked up by the blogosphere. This editorial shoot for L'Uomo Vogue by Bruce Weber is part of an alleged deal between Michael Jackson and Roberto Cavalli; in exchange for Jackson’s photo shoot, Cavalli would create a new look for Jackson’s comeback album.
The Bruce Weber shoot for Michael Jackson took place in New York City and showed off the King of Pop’s new emsemble. One of the looks is elegant and sleek but still reminiscent of Michael Jackson’s signature futuristic style. The second is far more comfortable, with Aladdin pants, a New York Yankees hat and a sequined vest.
Also present in Bruce Weber’s Michael Jackson photo shoot is a series of MJ in a pantsuit—complete with a split rear. These images are a great way to see the King of Pop on the brink of his comeback.
