When Mario Testino walked the red carpet at his photography exhibit, “In Your Face,” held at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts in October, it was clear that the photographer had become fast friends with more than a few of our favorite supermodels! Now, in honor of his newly released fashion tome and the success of his first US exhibit, Testino’s gaggle of beauties have rejoined the legendary photographer, this time for the pages of V magazine’s highly-anticipated spring issue. Shot by Testino himself, the beautiful black and white spread features model muses Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Erin Wasson, Constance Jablonski, Edita Vilkeviciute, Sigrid Agren and Bianca Balti modeling the best of the Spring 2013 collections. While posing in graphic designs by Givenchy, Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton, the models also made their admiration for Testino known, sharing their praises and earliest Testino memories with the fashion mag.
“Just being around Mario is exciting and uplifting—working together never feels like work,” mused Karlie. “It just feels like one epic party. His passion for his art is inspiring.”
“Mario has been a big supporter of all us Brazilian girls, and has a way of making you feel so beautiful, sexy, and confident when he is behind the camera,” added Alessandra.
Testino is hailed as one of the world’s most celebrated fashion photographers and with one look at his latest editorial work, it’s easy to see why that is! Check out the slideshow below for all of the ‘Model Mania’ going on at V magazine this month!
