Interestingly, Vogue Brazil has posted an "explanation" on their website. Here's part of it (badly) translated by me:
This special issue's graphic design was made by Higher+Higher, an agency which works as a creative and strategic basis for Mario Testino, with offices in London and S„o Paulo. "When I idealized this special body issue, I immediately thought of an energetic layout. This energy is related to the idea that the human body is the perfect machine, I find it very intriguing," said Testino. "Based on that, Higher+Higher developed layouts which expressed exactly the concept I created. The graphic design's role is to translate the idea behind a special edition, and I believe we have completely achieved this goal."

Laura Rule, creative director at Higher+Higher, adds that "to support Mario Testino's ideas, we used as reference fashion magazines from the late 80s, a period in which such publications celebrated the body and carried this optimistic message. We looked at this universe in a contemporary way, manipulating simple typography and playing with perspective and proportion, aiming to translate movement and the body's power."

I'm surprised to see that Tonne Goodman is the stylist for Joan's editorial. Has she freelanced outside of Vogue US before?

^ Not sure that she has but I think it might be common practice. Grace C has done several eds for other regional issues of Vogue.

Gisele forever tying too hard in her ed, but Joan & Doutzen are effortlessly amazing!

I'll be buying this today. Testino's photography hasn't excited me for a long time, but it's worth collecting.
I must say I found the couple story very appropriate. They're both handsome, the photos look SO good and - yes - tasteful That's Mario at his best. Looking at these photographs gives me a nice feeling, which I can't describe very well. The following text is quite bad, though. Too clichť and pretentious.
