    Only just saw the video of Boyce at the press conference. Truly heartbreaking to have to witness such sadness in a man! Couldn't actually finish it, too uncomfortable. I hope he'll seek psychological therapy.

    As for that white haired, heave-inducing biker, hope he'll get nailed to the wall. There's a special place in hell for truly despicable men like him.

    yeah when I was working at a modeling agency, we would be contacted by these "photographers" that clearly just wanted to work with male models so they could get them to take their clothes off. its disgusting

    The end of Mario Testino? Never thought I'd see this day! Pity for Anna because he shot next month's cover and the press will have a field day with that.

    The clause laid out by Hearst sounds so laughab to me. Declare any pending sexual harassment charges beforehand? Really? That's their solution to the problem? CN's may sound a bit hard-handed but the modelling industry functioned unmoderated for far too long.

    But I think they can still change the cover when the issue is reprinted for restock.

    Sh*t, yes! March was also shot by him, I think. That can be reshot, I'm sure.

    Mon, I didn't know they could do that. It will mean two covers will float around. Bear in mind that Amazon is sitting with a lot of stock. If this was March or Sept I'd sat maybe. But Feb is not a busy month. They probably won't even go for a 2nd print as it is.
    Think about the implications. Serena and her bub will have to avail themselves again if it's a reshoot. It only worked for Elle with Richardson because I don't think the issue was printed at the time.

    Heard stories about Testino for years, from models, to his former assistants that had some cringe worthy experiences right from Harvey Weinstein book!!

    How glorious to see someone as powerful as Testino be held accountable, i thought the day would never come! The amount of support this man has in the industry, despite many knowing, is insane!!

    Surprised and happy by Anna's statement, it truly feels like we are at a point of change in the world, and creeps are being weeded OUT!! The fact they won't work wtih him, no CN title, is amazing step, and i hope he doesn' weasel himself out of this, and more people come forward!

    ^I´d also imagine that brands won´t work with him, not just magazines. Stuart Weitzman must be banging their heads against the walls... so far is the only SS2018 campaign out with Testino. I wonder about Michael Kors, Burberry, Carolina Herrera...

    ^ Very curious to see how those brands respond, especially Kors who has been using him for so long! He needs to be shut out completely!

    His lawyers response is such BS! They always come after the vicitims, and to discredit them!

    Has any of the Testino accusers been named / revealed? Or are the reports sticking with a mere general allegation of “13 employees” “male models” “have accused...”.

    Yes, some have been named on the record, quite a few spoke to NYT, but several kept Anonymous, and i think for there to be truly "The end of MT", we need more of them to step forward!! Someone as powerful as him, could easily get out of this!

    We’ve all heard countless stories about Testino and Weber and I am glad victimized models and assistants are finally coming out. I have a hunch that this is not the end of it and that more public allegations will follow.

    Why would you not believe him because of not finding anything via Google?!
