Legendary fashion photographer Mario Testino, who’s had a hand in furthering the careers of icons Kate Moss and Gisele Bndchen, has worked his magic yet again.
This time, it’s for Mercedes-Benz’s Berlin Fashion Week campaign and involves top model, Joan Smalls playing an intergalactic heroine in a slick, arty, short film.
Complete with a sizeable mohawk, leather catsuit and gold studded dog collar, Joan gives off a luxe version of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo crossed with Catwoman.
She’s infiltrated an underground warehouise where the world’s treasures are wrapped and guarded, and proceeds to drive off with the object of her desire, which is of course the new Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake.
The video injects a bit of humour with the herione opening the sunroof to accomodate her mohawk.
