If you’ve yet to hear of the brothers Brant, you are very fortunate. You are also not a subscriber and/or reader of Vanity Fair, where they were profiled back in September. That story’s title says it all: “Little Lord Flauntleroys.” Peter, 18, and Harry, 15, are the
split-manifestation antichrist sons of publishing mogul Peter Brant Sr. and supermodel Stephanie Seymour (and yes, you may recognize Peter from that ill-advised beachside photo in which he is both groping and smooching his mother on the lips), and frankly they are beyond words. They’re kind of like the gay Hilton sisters except worse in that they’re both fucking terrible (Nicky is, after all, pretty inoffensive), but unlike the Hilton sisters they are a) “high society” and b) one of them Tweeted about assassinating the president. Seriously. Alas, the Brant brothers have reached their zeitgeist saturation point: a satirical Tumblr now exists in their name.
Brant Watch pairs real (ridiculous) photos of the boys with fake (ridiculous) commentary. It is brilliant and includes such gems as: “His ‘cocaine-white’ blazer was conceptualized by Bret Easton Ellis.” I guess if these people must continue to exist, which I still personally have trouble coming to terms with, someone witty might as well make fun of them on the Internet.
