V Magazine #112 Spring 2018 : Mariah Carey by Mario Testino


There is no credits as to who shot the cover but both the cover and accompanying cover feature on V Magazine's website scream Mario Testino.

Yep, I'm prepared to bet that this was shot by Testino! Is this the new tactic? Run their work, but don't credit them? It can't work for too long.

Because I loathe the cover I hoped maybe the edit would deliver something interesting. No such luck. It's your typical Mariah Carey cheesefest. In-your-face bling, excess photoshop, corny smiling. Basically what Paper did with her a few months ago. Jennifer Lopez don't need to lose any sleep!

Are they seriously doing this now? Hiring that creep, but not adding his name anywhere? I mean wow, Fashion Industry has always been a messed up place, but this is really something!! Shame on them!

So they've credited everyone on the website (even the photography assistants) except for Testino. Seeing as the allegations came out in January they had ample time to reshoot, but I guess thy don't have the budget for it?

It is by Testino, the manicurist posted images and credited him as the photographer. It's quite funny with these allegations and his last portfolios that he had done. You can notice to party is over, the glamour and flashiness is gone, everyone needs to return back to their normal lives. The moments he captured aren't ones he just stumbled upon but rather forced now. His usage of excess is seen as amateur now and making people's wrinkles disappear with a flash and lots of lights is just terrible now. For V it will hopefully be a step in the right direction because they have relied on Testino too much.

lol what's happening with Testino was their chance to hide these atrocious photos and to do a better job but they missed it.

Bad cover, bad editorial.

Why do her teeth look so long?! The cover is a little frightening and the actual editorial isn't worth even looking at. Bet Testino will have demanded a hefty check for this too..

What a weird thing to do. Hiding his name won't stop people from knowing? I presume he has to be given credit somewhere in the magazine despite everything, they can't just not credit him surely? There was ample time to reshoot but who knows, Mariah is such a demanding subject she may have refused to be shot by anyone else.

It's all a bit of a missed opportunity. Mariah, whilst being so comical now, is someone who isn't photographed much for magazines and is never really on covers. They could have done something much better than this. Her facial expression is the same everywhere, but then by all accounts she's always been very, very particular about the way she is shot.

Was this shot before the truth about him came out? It's amazing how many of these publications continue to run content photographed by him.

Lol this is soooo bad. And Testino nonetheless. Shame on them.

They probably didn't have the budget for a reshoot. And given Mariah's demanding and particular nature, I doubt she would have been okay with shooting this mess all over again.

And I assume that they likely paid Testino for this? If so, would they be legally obligated to credit him? I'm not sure if the big celeb photographers get paid for editorials and covers like this with high profile subjects.
