Mario Testino Beauty Spread for Allure Magazine
by Alice Byrne
For the October issue of Allure Magazine, iconic photographer Mario Testino shoots the sultry seductress that is Karlie Kloss. This beauty story is brought to life with voluptuous hair styling by Oribe, and colorful yet sexy make-up designs by Stephane Marais. Dressed in nothing but a little lingerie, Karlie looks drop-dead gorgeous with flowery hair pieces, perched upon a motorbike or lathering up in soapy bubbles.
Karlie is playing the role of a good girl gone bad, with the beauty touches really standing out in this editorial, from the nails, to hair styling and seductive bedroom eyes. Fashion editor Paul Cavaco puts a wonderful collection of pieces together for this beauty story, including eye catching jewelry and simple lingerie. In particular we love the soft focus in the photograph of Karlie with all the flowers in her hair, however we also find that the image with the bubbles stands out because of the sexy yet innocent creative direction and styling.
