    'Brad Pitt Unleashed', W, July 1999, p. 125 (variant)

  • Catalogue Essay

    ‘Brad called to tell me about this movie he was shooting and how excited he was about the costumes. He wanted to do a story based on the film. I read the book, not seeing the movie, and created my own Fight Club. We used the original film’s costumes, which were designed by Michael Kaplan. This was revolutionary for W magazine because it featured all 34 pages of costumes on a male actor in a women’s magazine. It also featured Brad’s bare buttocks in two of the inside photographs. When it came down to shooting the cover, the magazine wanted to put him in a buttoned-down shirt. In the end, we all decided that it was better to see his costume from the film on the cover.’
