A supermodel extravaganza for V Magazine

So you want to shoot a swimsuit issue of your magazine and you think ‘who should we get for the cover?’ Then it dawns on you, why have one supermodel when you can have six. This is probably the thought processes that went through the minds of editors of V Magazine when developing their latest issue.


There are six variations on the front cover all shot by the legend that is Mario Testino, and it is the first swimwear issue for the iconic magazine. The coverstars are Kate Moss posed in that Maison Margiela wig coat, Eva Herzigova having a Marilyn moment, Naomi Campbell is a homage to bunny girls everywhere, whilst Claudia Schiffer is wearing those YSL shoes. Gisele Bundchen and Daria Werbowy look super super sexy.


It’s a great shoot, the pop colours look fab as do all the gorgeous girlies. I love the blend of sex and femininity. Inside readers will be treated to interviews with the cover stars as well as more photo shoots.

But here’s a tricky question… who looks the best? And which one would make you run out and buy swimwear?

The issue will hit shelves on 6th May, visit V Magazine for a sneak preview.
