The ‘Model Combat‘ editorial shoot by photographer Mario Testino in the new V magazine is breathtaking — and scary. We’d like to see John Carter take on these two!
The photoshoot features Victoria’s Secret models Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes (both almost unrecognizable) in gladiatorial underwear styled by the always daring Nicola Formichetti.
The models are wearing a grab-bag of edgy pieces that include shredded American Apparel fishnets, a Tom Ford jacket, bras from Agent Provocateur and Versace, and those phenomenal harness riggings from Zana Bayne and Assaad Awad. Not to mention briefs that are, apparently, from Adriana’s “own collection.”
More photos and a making-of video below. These are from V76, the Sports issue, which features Jennifer Lopez on the cover and hit newsstands yesterday. A must-have for fans of really great fashion photography!
