The “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star showcased his youthful looks and modeling skills in a recent photo-shoot for a prestigious menswear brand, making the perfect image for their anniversary collection.
Brad Pitt is an immensely popular actor with many awards and a 30-year career, but given his good looks, even after fifty, it is not surprising that he also makes a great fashion model.
Pitt has recently lent his modeling skills for a fashion campaign for the Italian menswear brand Brioni, in time to celebrate the fashion house’s 75th anniversary, as Brioni’s Instagram feed revealed on September 8, 2020.

To mark the milestone, Brioni launched the Fall/Winter 2020 campaign “Tailoring Legends,” with Pitt as the official face of the collection, giving their followers a first glimpse with a video teaser featuring the actor walking away from the camera at a photo set.
The following day, Brioni posted a stunning black and white portrait of the 56-year-old star wearing the brand’s Virgilio suit and doing a sophisticated and playful pose as he looks way younger than his age.
Pitt’s age-defying looks are the perfect match for the brand’s philosophy of combining the classic and the contemporary, as it is stated in the post’s caption.
Pitt had already appeared on promotional photos of the collection as early as January 2020, when the actor modeled a limited edition suit and a tuxedo, and he also wore one of the brand’s tuxedos for the 2020 Golden Globes, where he won Best Supporting Actor.
Brioni’s collaboration with Pitt started back in November 2019, when the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star was announced as the brand ambassador with an Instagram post.
Sharing an image of Pitt wearing a Brioni tuxedo during an award ceremony, the brand acknowledged Pitt as “an icon of cinema and style” who “embodies and reinforces Brioni’s bond with Hollywood.”
“I’ve always admired Brioni’s elegant and timeless designs. The brand embodies creativity, quality and excellence,” Pitt said in turn when the campaign was unveiled in January.
Pitt is not the first Hollywood big name to represent Brioni, with his fellow actors like Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Hopkins, and Pierce Brosnan having previously involved in campaigns for the Italian brand.
