Baby-faced sex instructor Ansel Elgort, freshly showered and nearly hairless, is one of the latest models in Mario Testino's ongoing Instagram photo project, "Towel Series."
The 2012 Hollywood Issue cover of Vanity Fair — shot by Mario Testino — features 11 "starlets" shot in satin and feathers for a "'20s and '30s boudoir feel."

Vogue's photos of Kate Moss's wedding are the centerpiece of the magazine's all-important September issue — but someone got a little over-zealous with the post-production manipulations.

Last December, Condé Nast sued a fashion blogger for posting unpublished pictures from Vogue, Teen Vogue, and Lucky. The culprit? 22-year-old fashion-obsessed community college student Ross Ulrich, who once said his "heroes" were Bruce Weber, Steven Klein, and Mario Testino.
Actress/grammatically creative indie songstress Zooey Deschanel is suing footwear knocker-offer/convicted felon Steve Madden for reneging on a $2 million contract. For that sum, Deschanel would have spent 13 days "designing" and promoting a line called "Zooey's Shoes And Accessories." [NYPost]

Zoe Saldana is the latest face of Calvin Klein. The actress' only other foray into fashion was a clothing line by the name of Arasmaci. Perhaps she didn't want any other ads to come between her and her Calvins? [People]
