With nearly 40 years of bringing the best to fashion readers worldwide, Mario Testino photographs a special April 2017 issue for Vogue Netherlands‘s 5th anniversary. The veteran lensman highlights the bared curves of Dutch supermodels Doutzen Kroes and Lara Stone in this month’s cover story, styled by George Cortina, in satin slingback pumps by the Vetements x Manolo Blahnik collaboration. On this particular passion project Testino tells Models.com, “Dutch models have a kind of beauty that is so relatable – it touches most people. They have a strong look, but at the same time can easily be transformed, making them chameleon-like. On top of everything, they’re such great company and a joy to spend time with!” Advancing into the well, Luna Bijl, Estella Boersma, Imaan Hammam, Daphne Groeneveld, Steffi Soede, and Marjan Jonkman take style downtown in 5 other stories with looks curated by Paul Cavaco, Joe McKenna, Beat Bolliger, and beauty by Christiaan, Val Garland and Charlotte Tilbury. So much fever in this issue has us wishing it was summertime already!
