As Fashion Week in New York comes to a close, superstar fashion photographer Mario Testino weighs in on the controversy on superskinny models. He says thin is in. In an interview with CNN, Testino said, “We are in a business to sell clothes. Clothes look better on a thinner person, but I don’t think that clothes look good on a skeleton, myself.’ Despite the equivocation in the last sentence, you get a pretty good idea from the statement about where most photographers come down on the issue. Here you see one of Testino’s photos of model Kate Moss.—David Schonauer
