Since shooting a snapshot of Kate Moss after she had stepped out of the shower in a robe and towel wrapped around her head, Mario Testino has convinced almost every big name model in the business to pose for his hugely popular Instagram “Towel Series,” including the likes of Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, and Miranda Kerr. Now Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and none other than Justin Bieber are among the latest crop of social media darlings to get the #iwokeuplikethis treatment.
The photographer captured candids of the trio alongside singer Cody Simpson and actor Ansel Elgort while on set for a fashion story in the April issue of Vogue. Jenner appears statuesque and regal with a towel piled high on top of her crown, while Elgort takes a more relaxed pose reclining in his plush white robe. As for Bieber? Clearly he’s aware that with highly worked-out abs like these, there really isn’t much need for a filter—or a towel for that matter.
A rambling California afternoon on the prowl with The New Brat Pack, the Instagram aristocracy—Kendall Jenner, Ansel Elgort, Justin Bieber—features an haute-casual mix of texture and contrast
Ansel is on the April cover of Seventeen magazine. You can check out photos from the covers and outtakes in our gallery. Below are also some parts of interviews Seventeen has been releasing!
“[My friend] Jordan and I used to throw eggs off my roof and hit cars. We got in trouble with the police when I was 15. They came to our door. I told my dad, ‘We were throwing eggs off the roof and you were out of town and they got really mad at us and said if we did it again we would get in trouble, but we’re never going to do it again.’ I said it all in one sentence. He was like, ‘Okay.'” (Read More)
“I like to buy girls shoes and jewelry. I buy stupidly expensive shoes,” Ansel said. “I got Louboutins for my mom and my girlfriend before. My mom was like, ‘I can’t wear these — they’re too high.’ I was like, ‘Mom, you have to try them, they’re so cool. They’re red snakeskin!’ She still wears them every so often but she can’t walk in them.”(Read More)
“I like romantic dates — going on a long walk in Central Park and then taking the subway downtown and going out to eat and ordering oysters. After that, you walk around again and talk. Morning dates are nice, too. I love doing romantic s***. It’s fun. It’s like you’re living in a movie.”(Read More)

People Magazine has released a set of character posters from “Insurgent.” I have added Ansel as Caleb to the gallery! You can also read a little scoop from Insurgent:
Tris’s brother Caleb, played by Ansel Elgort, becomes a more central character in Insurgent. “Even though Caleb does some pretty dastardly things, Ansel manages to convince us that he believes in some greater good – even if it’s at the risk of his own sister’s life,” says producer Douglas Wick.
