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."
