Mario Testino's Mercedes-Benz campaign

Mario Testino captures supermodel Joan Smalls for Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake campaign video. Following in the footsteps of Nick Knight and Terry Richardson, celebrated photographer Mario Testino is the latest fashion luminary to step behind the lens for Mercedes-Benz.

Continuing the tradition of pairing leading fashion photographers and filmmakers with the world's most beautiful women, Testino's muse is supermodel Joan Smalls, who stars as an intergalactic beauty, wrapped and guarded like a masterpiece in an underground warehouse.

Smalls, dressed in vintage Thierry Mugler, topped with a towering Mohican, breaks free of her bonds and quickly sets about liberating another treasure - the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake - from its covers before climbing in and taking off.

The punch line comes as Smalls opens the sunroof to make space for her Mohican, before speeding away laughing audaciously.

The slick short which is soundtracked by Trenemøller's Vamp and wardrobed by Vogue Paris and Balenciaga stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé makes its worldwide debut here on

Take a minute to soak up the beauty and glamour as fashion and fast cars collide.
