Britney Spears for POP Fall/Winter 2010 by Todd Cole

Continuing with their celebration of all things blonde, POP’s fall edition taps one of the most famous blondes in music to be their latest cover star. Inspired by anime, Spears is a mix of Lolita and bride in the fantastical images shot by Todd Cole. Through the combined efforts of Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, fashion editor Vanessa Reid and set designer Peter Klein, Spears transforms from pop star to fashion fantasy in the hyper realistic shoot.

  1. I actually like it. Not only is it something different, but it has a vision and sticks to it.

  2. :-( these are so incredibly sad. She looks like she is crying in every photo. A true lolita married to popular culture..

    • “A true lolita married to popular culture”. That’s precisely the point. It’s called irony. This is clearly not an average editorial.

      • Exactly! This isn’t a fashion shoot in a search for beauty – it’s using icon and irony to capture the essence of how extreme popular culture can be, and Britney is just a pawn who embodies it. It’s critiquing culture -it’s not ‘beautiful’, it’s exposing and very interesting. Whether that was their intention I don’t know – but it is called ‘POP’.

          see but is it. it’s like they’re telling her one thing and thinking another. i don’t think she gets the irony bit. or she does and she’s doing it very well.
          oooohhh.

        • No it’s the other way around of the reverse of what they said…. oh who gives a shit. The pics are like old Playboy meets 80’s My Little Pony. Whatever.

      • I don’t see irony at all to be honest, I see complete reality, which all parties involved surely know as well.

  7. woowyy.. totally love it…finally some good shoot for britney :))) ..happy 4 her

  8. she look so much like a man and with a gigantic head…. for some reason though its better than a lot of stuff i see, i think its the fact it makes me cringe so much.

    • HEY, you can not call Britney trailer trash. You just can’t. She had a good upbringing and worked HARD to get where she is. Period.

      • Oh yes, I’m sure she had a perfectly good trailer trash upbringing. And it definitely shows. One should give credit where deserved.

  9. I absolutely love Britney Spears and I think she looks amazing in this shoot, it´s so conceptual and girlie and it brings back all that manga theme to it, she couldnt have looked better!! Congrats to POP for having such an iconic star on their cover! xoxo

  12. Yipp, This photographer has just confirmed that a camera can be a very dangerous weapon in the hands of some one that does not know how to use it. And britney should just stick to being photographed by the paparazzi, because they do a better job at making her look good.

  13. I like Britney, but this is awful, looks so amateur. The only thing that I like is that she looks like seventeen again :)

  14. I like that she’s wearing Rodarte again, which she wore on the cover of her Circus album. I think she looks beautiful, probably airbrused but still looks great!

  16. OMG, there’s too much glow in every photo! Her hair, make up and styling look horrendous! And why is she posing as if she were 17 again??
    This could much be a joke photoshoot, but the fact that it’s meant to be serious is either sad or hilarious. If I were Britney, I would be ashamed of this.

  17. It depends on the editorial agenda I think, it can either be a complete disaster or a pure genius–I somehow had a feeling that it’s the latter (which prob. done in Britney’s expense of not knowing and even clueless on the idea; which makes it rather cruel).

    ps. pic #5 look like a man.

  18. I get the point of the shoot and I kinda like the whole idea of it.
    But I don’t like the way its done and not because its not like the typical editorial, that editing looks like its done by half my friends on FB that try to use PS.
    Its ew, its amateur looking, and it looks for something for a cheap site.

  19. Actually there is very little irony in pairing up Murakami with Spears. Its commercial pop trash meets commercial pop trash. Obvious, and culturally redundant. And yes, sad.

  21. Brilliant work!!!

    It makes thinking people think more about popular culture and fame

  22. Her smile and expressions looks So FORCED and fake, she seems to be out of it and not in a good way, I think the shoot was a disaster and honestly only her “inner” emotions came out, which is scary because she looks confused, high or god knows what else is wrong with her.
