Have you been wondering what’s up with all the turbanned, towel-clad models taking up your Instagram feed? Well, Mario Testino is the man behind these striking shots, as they’re all part of his project, Towel Series.
Yep, the photographer has convinced every ‘It’ girl to pose for the project, including the likes of Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, Miranda Kerr and Gigi Hadid- who posed nude with now ex-boyfriend Cody Simpson (awks).
However, his newest recruit for the project has set the Internet into overdrive. The notoriously private Kristen Stewart agreed to strip down and bare all for the 91st shot in the series, and boy does she look HAWT.
The Twilight actress can be seen broodingly gazing at the camera for her intimate black and white portrait, in which she poses *almost* completely nude, covering her modesty with a strategically placed white towel. Oh, and it’s worth noting the masterful hand placement K-Stew employs in the shot—after all, #FreeTheNipple isn’t going to happen any time soon, is it?>
Speaking of the photos, Mario Testino said: ‘The ‘Towel Series’ is a very private club. I think guys and girls feel this freedom at being able to express themselves. There is no predetermined way of how you put the towel on. I have always treasured this kind of freedom: it’s rare.’
A couple of months back, it was the revealing of Mr Testino’s 82nd portrait that really shocked us. Yep, none other than Anna Wintour stripped bare for the series – well, almost. Sans her usual sunglasses, the 65-year-old Vogue editor’s shot made for one rather memorable moment, albeit with her pristine bob intact and no turban in sight.
All in all, if Testino’s existing towel models are anything to go by, we can’t wait to see which A-listers will be next. Watch this space!
