Vogue suspends photographers Mario Testino and Bruce Weber following sexual misconduct claims

Vogue and other fashion magazines have announced they will not work with acclaimed photographers Mario Testino and Bruce Weber "for the foreseeable future" after a Saturday New York Times report in which more than a dozen male models and former colleagues accused each man of sexual exploitation.

"I remember him putting his fingers in my mouth, and him grabbing my privates," said model Robyn Sinclair of Weber. "We never had sex or anything, but a lot of things happened. A lot of touching. A lot of molestation." Testino is accused of similar behavior, including forced "groping and masturbation."

Weber categorically rejected the accusations, saying he is "shocked and saddened by the outrageous claims being made against me, which I absolutely deny." Testino's representative argued his accusers could not be trusted, stating the photographer's former employees were "shocked by the allegations" and "could not confirm any of the claims."
