The mystery surrounding the Britney Spears photo shoot continues.
Now that we know Patrick Demarchelier is not shooting the comeback kid for Vogue, what could it be for?
Maybe Brit’s getting an early jump on Christmas by posing with Sean Preston and Jayden James for their annual holiday card?
Um, probably not…
Most industry insiders I’ve spoken to put their money on Glamour.
“Patrick shoots for Glamour all the time,” one insider explains. “She’s perfect for Glamour. If it’s not Vogue, who else could it be for?”
A rep for Glamour would not confirm or deny an upcoming appearance by the “Oops!…I Did It Again” singer. “We don’t comment on upcoming issues,” the rep said.
While known primarily as Vogue’s main shutterbug, Demarchelier is allowed to shoot for other mags like Glamour as long as they’re within parent company Condé Nast’s empire.
Besides, another insider says, Spears has a good history with Glamour. She appeared on the cover of their Women of the Year issue in 2003 and “it sold very well,” the insider says.
Spears then appeared at the annual Women of the Year awards alongside other honorees like former POW Jessica Lynch and Seabiscuit author Laura Hillenbrand.
Demarchelier has also shot Spears in the past for Rolling Stone and CosmoGirl.
A long-shot prediction? Vanity Fair. Editor-in-Chief Graydon Carter has made some unconventional choices in the past, including a much-criticized cover of Paris Hilton and, to a lesser degree, Lindsay Lohan.
But a V.F. spokesperson says she doesn’t think a Spears story is in the works: “It’s not something that I’ve been told or heard about.”
A rep for Spears at her music label did not comment, and emails sent to Demarchelier’s office went unanswered.
