Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon, and his fiancée, Lauren Sanchez, are facing some serious mockery from fans over their recent Vogue photo shoot. The engaged couple posed for a joint interview and photo session for the December 2023 issue of Vogue, and let’s just say the pictures are raising some eyebrows, with some viewers spotting how the images look awfully like they may be Ai generated.
In one photo, Jeff and Lauren are seen sitting in a car together, with Lauren wrapping her arms around her partner. Jeff decided to rock a brown cowboy hat, black shirt, and blue jeans, while Lauren sported a stylish ensemble featuring items from Ralph Lauren and Kim Kardashian’s Skims brand. But it seems fans are not impressed.

Social media was flooded with reactions to the photos, with some claiming they looked “edited” with comments stating “These are AI-generated, you cannot convince me otherwise,”! One person on X, formerly known as Twitter, wrote, “This, on Jeff Bezos and his fiancée Lauren Sanchez, is the cringey-est story/photo essay Vogue has ever done. And…do they think they look good? It’s like an uncanny valley.” Ouch!
The criticism didn’t stop there. In the comments under Vogue’s Instagram post featuring the couple, people accused the magazine of “glamorising” the lives of billionaires and questioned their attempt to relate to normal people. With Jeff’s net worth sitting at a whopping $165.7 billion, it’s easy to understand the skepticism.
During her interview with Vogue, Lauren opened up about her relationship with Jeff. She revealed that despite receiving a 20-carat, $2.5 million pink diamond engagement ring, their proposal was relatively low-key. As for wedding plans, the couple is still undecided about the details.

But one thing’s for sure, Lauren is ready to take Jeff’s last name once they tie the knot. When asked about it, she responded with a resounding “Uh, yes, one hundred percent. I am looking forward to being Mrs. Bezos.” Well, at least she’s certain about that!
So, it seems Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez’s Vogue photo shoot has become a source of entertainment for many. From the “cringey” poses to accusations of glamorisation, the couple can’t seem to catch a break. We’ll have to wait and see if their wedding plans stir up more controversy, but in the meantime, we can’t help but laugh at the memes and comments flooding social media.
